Editorial Reviews

ADDitude Magazine

"Even as an experienced clinician, I found the book peppered with insightful, clever tidbits that shifted my understanding of ADHD and how I work with these clients. We need more books like this!"--ADDitude Magazine
From the Publisher

"Few have done more than Solanto and her colleagues to advance our knowledge of cognitive-behavioral therapy for adults with ADHD. Now Solanto has produced a detailed, highly useful 'how-to-do-it' guide to implementing this effective approach. The treatment addresses the principal executive function deficits that characterize ADHD and helps adults manage their disorder more effectively. This is a 'must-have' manual for therapists, clinical trainees and graduate students, and others working with adults with ADHD."--Russell A. Barkley, PhD, ABPP, Department of Psychiatry, Medical University of South Carolina

"Solanto, one of the foremost experts in CBT for adult ADHD, has produced a state-of-the-art book that represents a tremendous advance for clinicians. This practical volume provides the rationale for conducting CBT with this population along with 'how-to' instructions and materials. I highly recommend it."--Lenard Adler, MD, Department of Psychiatry and Director, Adult ADHD Program, New York University School of Medicine

"This book presents one of the few evidence-based psychosocial treatments for adults with ADHD that have emerged in recent years. Solanto's group treatment approach is an asset to clinicians. It allows multiple patients to benefit at once as they gain coping skills and receive social support from others with similar impairments."--Steven A. Safren, PhD, ABPP, Department of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital 

"Pills do not build skills. Adults with ADHD need to learn the basic organizational skills that are essential to activities of daily living, even when symptoms improve. This book is a clearly written, hands-on tool that will help therapists move beyond the prescription to provide effective psychological treatment."--Margaret D. Weiss, MD, PhD, Department of Psychiatry, University of British Columbia, Canada

Archives of Clinical Neuropsychology

"An oasis in an evidence-based treatment manual desert....What makes this book and the treatment manual that it contains so unique is that it is based on the treatment administered in past clinical research by Dr. Solanto's group....Further, this is the first manualized group treatment for ADHD in adulthood. Dr. Solanto's treatment is a cognitive-behavioral therapy that targets the executive functioning deficits regularly compromised in ADHD, particularly time management, planning, and organization....I found this book and its evidence-based treatment manual to be a user-friendly, yet detailed 'how-to' resource that also incorporates theory on executive functioning. This book should belong to anybody interested in working with adults diagnosed with ADHD. Adults diagnosed with ADHD often struggle in various aspects of their lives and need to find ways to cope with their presenting concerns. This book provides clear, practical, and accessible guidelines to assist such patients. In a field that is in its early stages of development, this book sets a benchmark for manualized adult ADHD treatments and will serve to ensure the growth of evidence-based approaches to treating ADHD in adulthood."--Archives of Clinical Neuropsychology
