Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy for Adult ADHD: Targeting Executive Dysfunctionby Mary V. Solanto
This highly practical book provides evidence-based strategies for helping adults with ADHD build essential skills for time management, organization, planning, and coping. Each of the 12 group sessions--which can also be adapted for individual therapy--is reviewed in step-by-step detail. Handy features include quick-reference Leader Notes for therapists, engaging in-session exercises, and reproducible take-home notes and homework assignments. The paperback edition includes the adult ADHD criteria from DSM-5. The treatment program presented in this book received the Innovative Program of the Year Award from CHADD (Children and Adults with ADHD).
"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
