Promotional Information

Although this book would be useful for any professional trying to understand adult ADHD, it is particularly useful for clinicians. A thorough reading of this book would take only a few hours and would give a therapist or counselor a solid base for providing assessment and/or treatment services for adults facing difficulties related to inattentiveness, hyperactivity, impulsivity, and/or restlessness.;Information regarding descriptions of adult ADHD, theories about the condition, diagnostic considerations, treatment approaches, and case examples are all contained in their own separate chapters. There are many treatment approaches and assessment methods available for ADHD, and this book gives solid direction for understanding how they best can be used with adults.;The authors have clearly given attention to making this book both practical and informative. Their compact text offers information supported by solid empirical research. A reader can recognize quickly not only what the research concludes about a particular topic, but also what studies are most important to that topic. This makes the book useful not only to clinicians but also to researchers who want a good starting place for understanding the current state of ADHD.; Daniel Marston, PhD, ABPP writing in PsycCRITIQUES (July 2016, Vol. 61, No. 29); Like all of the books in the Advances in Psychotherapy series, this one provides a thorough understanding of a complicated and common disorder, ADHD in adults. A wonderful feature of these books is the usefulness across clinical, research, and academic settings. This guide thoroughly examines the complexity of ADHD presentation in adulthood and describes in detail the numerous steps from diagnosis to treatment. The authors cover the basic terminology, diagnosis, epidemiology, comorbidity, scale assessments, and various pharmacological and nonpharmacological treatment options [and] provide an unbiased and empirically supported discussion with great examples and wonderful charts. I am thoroughly impressed with this latest volume in the Advances in Psychotherapy series. This is truly one of the best books I have reviewed this year and I recommend it for every clinician.; Nicholas Greco IV, MS, BCETS, CATSM, Columbia College of Missouri, in Doody's Reviews (2016)
