Description: This is the client workbook to a two-part set that focuses on the cognitive-behavioral treatment program for clients with ADHD. This is an evidence-based treatment for adult ADHD which was designed and implemented by clinical investigators at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston.
Purpose: The purpose of this workbook and the set is to provide an evidence-based treatment program for adult ADHD, and to give the client the tools necessary to work on managing ADHD symptoms. The clinical team who designed this program sought an adjunctive cognitive-behavioral treatment in addition to traditional pharmacotherapy. Given the prevalence of adult ADHD, this workbook is timely and meets not only the authors', but also the reader's objectives.
Audience: The workbook is for any adult ADHD client who has a clinician well versed in cognitive-behavioral therapy. The client's workbook and the therapist's guide work in tandem to give the client tasks to work on outside of the therapist's office. The authors and researchers involved in this program are unquestionably experts in the field.
Features: The entire program is well thought out. The therapist guide allows for the therapist to give the client verbal information while the workbook acts to substantiate the verbal in the form of written exercises with emphasis on key ADHD areas such as low attention spans. The client is given the key information about the program in the first three chapters. The more substantial information comes in the subsequent chapters which cover such topics as organization of multiple tasks, organizing papers, modifying one's environment, etc. This is a user-friendly and excellent resource and tool for the client to use and, more importantly, refer back to.
Assessment: This is an excellent workbook for the adult ADHD client. The value of this work cannot be measured. Highly recommended!
