Description

Product Description

Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in adulthood is a prevalent and impairing disorder. While medications have been effective in treating adult ADHD, the majority of individuals treated with medications still have symptoms that require additional skills and symptom management
strategies.

This Second Edition of Mastering Your Adult ADHD is thoroughly updated to present the most current, empirically supported treatment strategies in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) for coping with symptoms of adult ADHD. The Therapist Guide provides clinicians with effective means of teaching adult
clients skills that have been scientifically tested and shown to help them cope with ADHD. The program has been updated to include the optional use of technology and smart phones to improve organization and planning. Core modules cover the development of systems for keeping track of appointments and
tasks, reducing distractibility, and improving adaptive thinking skills, and there''s an optional module on reducing procrastination. Information is also provided regarding holding an informational meeting with a spouse, partner, or family member. The step-by-step, session-by-session descriptions
are a practical resource for therapists who deliver the treatment. The companion Client Workbook contains all of the necessary information for participating in the practical CBT intervention. It includes worksheets, forms, and a link to an assessment measure that can be used to gauge progress during
treatment.

Review

"It should be considered an extremely important and much overdue contribution to the ADHD clinical literature ... Safren, et al. deserve kudos for taking the first step down that path with their splendid volumes, which, in addition to helping adults with ADHD, also shed light on the work yet to be done." ―Journal of Attention Disorders

There. I just saved you $25. I have used workbooks in the past for depression a phobia and they''ve been really helpful. This was very light on specific techniques and strategies for dealing with symptoms. The information was very general and repetitive.

I will need to revisit my review when I’ve finished with the book, however, despite noting that potentially 50% of ADHDers who take medication are considered ‘non-responders’ (which is another way of saying that meds don’t work for half of those treated with meds), and despite pointing out that of those who do respond to medication show only a 50% or less reduction in core ADHD symptoms- despite these two astonishing facts- medicine plays an important role in the minds of the authors: “...we found that people who completed this program in addition to taking their medications did significantly better than people who [took meds] but did not receive this treatment.”

That sentence seems to indicate that half of the people with ADHD are simply out of luck.

I will revisit my review after a complete and more faithful reading.

My therapist recommended this for me to read! I have read and find it informative and educational!
I never knew I had ADHD! By reading and studying and tons of reflection I discovered I’ve been this way since I was a child!
How freeing! Recommend this to anyone!

Really helpful for learning and improving myself as I have really bad ADHD. I like that it addresses that medication cannot take care of all of the symptoms.

I was only diagnosed a few years back, but this has been absolutely fantastic for helping manage my life, stress and work. Don''t turn your nose up at the seemingly "simple" techniques. Stick with the programme with patience, and you''ll see results. It helps having a good therapist taking you through the book weekly though.
