ADHD expert leads workshop in Victoria

Duncan McKinley, an Ontario-based psychologist, speaks regularly on impulse control in children.

It’s difficult to find a classroom in B.C. without at least one child who faces a behavioural disorder.

To make sense of this world of increasing diagnoses and response models, a well-known psychologist will be holding a series of workshops for parents, teachers and practitioners.

Duncan McKinley, an Ontario-based psychologist and professor, speaks regularly on impulse control in children and youth.

His first by-donation workshop for parents and caregivers takes place Oct. 23, 7 p.m. at Spectrum School Theatre, 957 Burnside Rd. West.

A practitioner workshop happens all day Oct. 24 at the University of Victoria’s Michele Pujol Room at a cost of $75.

The teacher workshop is already at capacity.
