Overview

ADHD and Its Many Associated Problems is a clinical handbook about infants, children, adolescents, young adults, middle-aged, and elderly people with ADHD and all its many comorbidities. It is the only book on ADHD that includes the comprehensive view of the condition as but one (albeit, perhaps the most important) of many disorders subsumed under the umbrella concept of ESSENCE (Early Symptomatic Syndromes Eliciting Neurodevelopmental Clinical Examinations). This book reviews the history of ADHD, its definitions, symptoms, associated ESSENCE problems, etiology, risk and protective factors, approach to diagnosis and diagnostic work-up, comprehensive intervention guidelines, and outcome. It relies on the most up-to-date research and clinical information available. With over 40 years of practice in the field, Christopher Gillberg demonstrates his extensive research and clinical experience in ADHD and Its Many Associated Problems. More than any other book in the field, it focuses on the variable clinical presentation and the importance of early recognition of these most important public health problems of our time. It makes the point that in order to be able to deal with ADHD in a holistic way, clinicians need to be aware that ADHD is not just about ADHD, but about an entire host of other problems. The book emphasizes the strengths that people with ADHD demonstrate, strengths that can be turned into great assets, but only if the nature of the underlying problems are acknowledged. ADHD and Its Many Associated Problems is intended for specialist neurologists and psychiatrists, but can also be of great value to general practitioners and clinical psychologists. It is useful also for social workers, teachers, and, people who suffer from the condition(s).

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This is an excellent book on attentional and impulse control spectrum disorders. ... I highly recommend it." --Michael Joel Schrift, D.O., M.A, Doody's Health Sciences Book Review

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Michael Joel Schrift, D.O., M.A.(University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This informative new book covers neurodevelopmental disorders in children and adults, focusing specifically on ADHD and related disorders. The book explains the approach to diagnosis and evaluation, differential diagnosis, and management of individuals with these disorders. Written by a leading clinician-researcher in the field, this is a welcome contribution to the psychiatric literature.
Purpose: The aim, according to the author, is "to convert scientific findings into a text that gives insight to specialists in child development, generalists, psychiatrists, clinical psychologists, and indeed to everyone " In addition, the author tries to "provide helpful advice about possible approaches to intervention" and "how best to use the newly acquired information." The author has produced a comprehensive and edifying book.
Audience: The target audience includes "specialists in child development, generalists, psychiatrists, clinical psychologists" and anyone involved in the care of individuals with ADHD.
Features: Chapters cover such topics as diagnostic criteria and definitions, ADHD and the concept of early symptomatic syndromes eliciting neurodevelopmental clinical examinations (ESSENCE), the prevalence of these disorders, development of symptoms, cognitive and language difficulties, mental health problems and other associated problems, differential diagnosis, the diagnostic evaluation, causes and risk factors, outcome, interventions. One chapter presents case histories. Each chapter concludes with relevant citations of the scientific literature.
Assessment: This is an excellent book on attentional and impulse control spectrum disorders. It helps readers organize a vast amount of scientific literature in the effort to help patients suffering from these common and life altering problems. I highly recommend it.
