ADHD in adults

£12.99

Product description

"This volume is a ground-braking first step in standardizing the psychosocial treatment of adults with ADHD." - Dr Sam Goldstein, University of Utah "I think it is a uniquely valuable guide to how psychological thinking and treatment can be helpful to adults with ADHD - I recommend it to all professionals taking on this work." - Professor Eric Taylor, Head of Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, King's College London Institute of Psychiatry "What emerges fro this perspective is clinical wisdom. I could see and feel both the patient and the therapy." - Margaret Weiss, Director of research, ADHD Clinic, Children's and Women's Health Centre, Canada There is increasing recognition of the prevalence of ADHD in adulthood, which is estimated to be around one percent in the general population. These people have often experienced lifelong underachievement; they feel misunderstood and have not received the help they need. Reflecting the growing awareness of this problem, ADHD in Adults provides a comprehensive account of the presentation of adulthood ADHD, its assessment and treatment. Written by experienced practitioners in the field, the book introduces a cognitive behavioural model of ADHD from which the authors developed the Young-Bramham Programme. This is a unique, modular framework for assessing and treating people with adulthood ADHD and associated problems using practical intervention techniques. The book is accompanied by the Young-Bramham Programme Companion Website, www.wiley.com/go/adhdadults that provides downloadable materials for use by clients and therapists. ADHD in Adults is invaluable reading for clinicians working with adult ADHD clients in many different settings including primary care, adult mental health, learning disability, forensic, neuropsychiatry and neuropsychology. It will also be a useful self-help resource for ADHD clients, friends, family and supporters.
