September/October California Psychologist features guest column by Dr. Howard Friedman on "The Value of Neuropsychological Testing: ADHD as an Example."

Adjunct faculty member Howard J. Friedman, Ph.D., ABPP, recently published a guest column in the September/October issue of California Psychologist. The column entitled "The Value of Neuropsychological Testing: ADHD as an Example" explores the key elements intrinsic to assessing adolescents and adults in order to obtain accuracy and distinguish ADHD from other conditions.

He states, "I see our role as neuropsychologists as critical not just in establishing a diagnosis, but more importantly, in establishing whether co-morbid conditions may be present and determining specific treatment needs. We are objectively measuring clients' strengths and limitations beyond the yes or no of whether a condition is present."

Nicole Calma Publishes on Psychiatric Patient Boarding Times In ERs

Nicole Calma, MA, a fourth-year Wright Institute student, has co-written an article published in the Western Journal of Emergency Medicine (June 2013) on the boarding times in emergency departments for psychiatric patients.

The article entitled "Effects of a Dedicated Regional Psychiatric Emergency Service on Boarding of Psychiatric Patients in Area Emergency Departments" was co-written with Scott Zeller, MD (Department of Psychiatric Emergency Services, Alameda Health System) and Ashley Stone, MPH (California Hospital Association).

The data suggests that having a regional psychiatric emergency service would be beneficial to the health care system.
