Overview

This lucid video provides an accessible introduction to Dr. Russell A. Barkley's influential theory of the nature and origins of ADHD. Crucial insights are provided for clinicians, students, parents of children with ADHD, and adults with the disorder. Specially designed graphics shed light on the underlying neuropsychological basis of ADHD. Offering a compelling explanation of how ADHD develops in the individual, the program illuminates the roots of such symptoms as a reduced ability to inhibit one's behavior, problems with managing time effectively, and lack of foresight. Also demonstrated are concrete ways that our growing understanding of the disorder might facilitate more effective clinical interventions.

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Linda Laatsch, PhD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This video provides a glimpse of the relatively new concept of ADHD.
Purpose: The video is designed to be used in inservice training for families, treatment providers, and parent support groups. Divided into short segments, a portion of the tape can be played and then discussion can occur.
Audience: While this tape might be used as an introduction for clinical psychology students, it does not have sufficient detail for this audience. It would only serve to introduce the concept of ADHD deficits being related to executive dysfunction. Dr. Barkley's written material would also need to be provided. Parents and individuals with ADHD would benefit more from the video for it provides information that will assist them in further understanding their symptoms.
Features: The adults with ADHD who speak on the video are especially valuable for they describe everyday difficulties with the ADHD symptoms. The presentation of children in the video, who are assumed to have ADHD, is less clear. The voice-over provided by Dr. Barkley is well organized and clear. The graphics serve to supplement the discussion and provide a useful visual model. While there is some simplification of the locations of various symptoms in the brain and the brain-based target of medication used in ADHD, the brain-relationship provided is clear and illustrative.
Assessment: Compared to other teaching videos in the area of psychology and disability, this video is simplistic and most appropriate as an introductory video for parents of children newly diagnosed with ADHD. The non-medication treatment approach reviewed provides a general overview of techniques that might be used. Individualizing of treatment approach needs to be completed under the guidance of an experienced therapist. Dr. Barkley has made a dramatic impact on the field of ADHD. The tape provides an important historical understanding of ADHD by attributing symptoms not to deficits in attention but to dysfunction in the executive processing.

From the Publisher
"This video is highly informative, scientific, and professional, and will have an important and positive impact. Dr. Barkley has a tremendous ability to provide very rich information in a short period of time. He communicates difficult concepts in a way that enables people from various backgrounds to understand the main points of his theory. The video will be useful in a wide variety of settings. I will show the video in my office (to parents of newly diagnosed children and to adults with ADHD), in CHADD meetings and parent support groups, and in inservice teacher training. It also will serve as an excellent educational tool for mental health professionals, physicians, nurses, and graduate students. This program will aid in the development of more consistent and scientifically based protocols to diagnose and treat ADHD. Its coverage of interventions is extremely valuable and hopeful, and includes a good sampling of interventions in the school setting." —Vera Joffe, PhD, Licensed Psychologist

"With his usual brilliance, Dr. Barkley presents his latest framework for understanding ADHD. Because these concepts are often complicated to follow in print, this polished and well-produced video is an excellent educational tool, especially for those of us who are somewhat theory-impaired." —Michael Gordon, Ph.D

"Barkley is one of the leading investigators, clinicians and thinkers on ADHD. In this video, he attempts to clarify the underlying psychopathological basis of ADHD. He does this in a clear, interesting, and thoughtful manner. The video may lead to improved concepts of diagnosis and management, especially in educational settings. Our clinic found this video interesting, stimulating, and thought provoking, and we recommend it highly to others." —John S. Werry, MD, Emeritus Professor of Psychiatry, University of Auckland, New Zealand
