A Practical Approach for Successful Interventions & Therapeutic Responses
Executive functions enable us to have insight, foresight, hindsight, and the ability to see context. When these abilities are diminished or non-existent, it causes problems for those individuals, along with others in their lives. In extreme cases, it is indicative of a mental health problem.
Understanding executive dysfunction in a practical way leads to successful interventions and therapeutic responses. Children, in general, have not developed their executive functions yet; we know how difficult their behaviors can be due to this lack of insight and inability to see the bigger picture. Many adult mental health issues stem from lack of development, frozen development, or physiological damage that inhibits development of insight, foresight, hindsight, and the ability to see beyond the current situation. In the absence of these abilities, interventions can be initiated that develop executive function or substitute for lack of executive function.
This comprehensive recording will give you a better understanding of executive dysfunction in these various disorders and a wealth of applicable new knowledge.
