    4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

    Central Standard Time (CST)

Disruptive behavior (e.g., oppositional defiant disorder and conduct disorder) and attention (e.g., attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder) disorders are characterized by symptoms of aggression, angry outbursts, antisocial behaviors, attention problems, defiance of authority figures, impulsivity, and uncooperative and defiant behaviors. In combination with other environmental, family, socio-emotional, and physical health factors, these multi-faceted conditions can contribute to a host of daily life functioning impairments for children. One impairment of particular concern is sleep disturbance, which has a significantly higher prevalence among children diagnosed with disruptive and attention disorders than in the general population. This training is designed to increase understanding of the causes, consequences, and interventions for sleep disturbances among children diagnosed with disruptive behavior and attention disorders. Empirically-based research findings will be presented throughout this training.
