ADHD & Related Concerns Conference

Hattiesburg Clinic Connections and Psychology & Counseling will host the 18th Annual ADHD and Related Concerns Conference – Hybrid Edition Oct. 21 and 22, 2021, at Temple Baptist Church in Hattiesburg, Miss. Virtual options will also be available. This conference will include sessions on various topics, including ADHD and coexisting disorders, dyslexia, behavior management, autism, and more. Continuing Education Units (CEUs) and credit hours will be applied for school administrators and educators, counselors, marriage and family therapists, health care providers, nurses, psychologists, social workers, dyslexia therapists, and speech language pathologists.

Parents and caregivers are also encouraged to attend.

Our mission is to educate and inspire the community to better diagnose, treat, and care for those with ADHD and coexisting disorders.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Hattiesburg Clinic Connections and Psychology & Counseling offered the conference virtually in 2020. This year we are planning to offer the conference in a hybrid format. Conference attendees will be able to watch the conference in real time, recorded, and hopefully in person (in limited numbers). Select recorded sessions will be available through Dec. 31 for conference attendees to view.
