This book offers clinicians a comprehensive, research-derived treatment model for use with adult clients suffering from attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). The treatment model integrates coaching, effective medication, cognitive behaviour therapy, and family education to support treatment. Written for the busy professional in private practice, the step-by-step session guidelines included can be put to use to help clients quickly and effectively. The book's first section offers and overview of ADHD, its causes and symptoms, and the ways in which it can have an impact on everyday lives of sufferers. In the second section, clinicians will find the detailed four-part, integrative treatment directions. Finally, the book covers additional information of interest to therapists working with clients with ADHD, including legal information about work, accommodation requirements and sources of group and community support.
