Abstract

This study explored the knowledge and perception between students that attended the Department of the Whitney M. Young Jr., School of Social Work and the remaining students that were attending the Atlanta University Centers in regards to attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). This study analyzed the harms of medical treatment; it delineated the Afrocentric Perspective as well as the Theoretical Frameworks to describe how it could be correlated with the Afrocentric Perspective in regards to enhancing a social workers’ understanding of human behavior in the social environment as well as its relevance to attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). The results from the study showed that there was no statistical significant relationship between students that attended the Department of the Whitney M. Young Jr., School of Social Work and the remaining students that were attending the Atlanta University Centers toward their knowledge and perception of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and medical treatment among adolescents.
