Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Nicholas Greco IV, MS, BCETS, CATSM (Columbia College of Missouri)
Description: This is the third edition of a clinical workbook to accompany the ADHD Handbook by one of the foremost authorities, Russell Barkley. This updated edition is a wonderful supplement and addition to the study of ADHD and expertly supports the main handbook.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide assessment and treatment forms, questionnaires, and handouts which are recommended in the handbook. Considering the prevalence of ADHD, as well as the pace of daily clinical practice, this book fills the need for resources for practitioners.
Audience: Both seasoned and newly minted clinicians will find this book beneficial. More importantly, the utility of this book as a standalone teaching tool cannot be overstated and graduate students and residents will also benefit. Clients will benefit from the numerous handouts and supplementary material that their clinicians will share with them.
Features: The workbook provides a quick section on important ADHD facts and then delves into the various forms for use with children and adolescents such as the Disruptive Behavior Rating Scale, available in both parent and teacher forms, the Home and School Situations Questionnaires, and the Issues Checklist for Parents and Teenagers. There are also forms for the evaluation of adults such as a Driving History and Driving Behavior Survey and a Work Performance Rating Scale.
Assessment: This is a solid clinical workbook to supplement the most definitive handbook on ADHD.
