Hinshaw, PhD, Professor of Psychology, UC Berkeley, Professor of Psychiatry, UC San Francisco, and co-author, The ADHD Explosion and ADHD: What Everyone Needs to Know

This book provides a much needed resource aimed at helping the underserved population of adults with ADHD."--Susan Sprich, PhD, Director, CBT Program, Director, Postgraduate Psychology

"This book contains a wealth of useful information about the wide variety of ways ADHD emerges in adults along with specific suggestions for how to provide effective treatments not just with medication, but also with practical, empathic psychotherapy and psychoeducation." --Thomas E. Brown, PhD, Director, Brown Clinic for Attention & Related Disorders, Adjunct Clinical Associate Professor of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences, Keck School of

"This is a fantastic book! It's up to date, well written, and abounds with clinical insights about all aspects of care for adults with ADHD. Rarely has a clinical text succeeded so well in knitting together the latest scientific research with sound, detailed, nuanced and practical clinical guidance. This comprehensive guide for mental health professionals addresses every aspect of assessment and treatment of adult ADHD. Of particular value are the many
illustrative dialogues that give the flavor of the difficulties faced by these clients and the types of intervention by the therapist that are helpful and effective... Dr. Willer's book represents a
tremendous contribution to the field - one that should be required reading for all those who work with adults with ADHD."--Mary Solanto, PhD, New York University, and author, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy for Adult ADHD: Targeting Executive Dysfunction
