Series: Advances in Psychotherapy – Evidence-Based Practice - Volume 35
A fully updated edition of the popular guide to evidence-based assessment and treatment of ADHD in adults
The second edition of this popular text incorporates the latest research on assessment and treatment practices for adults with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). This neurodevelopmental disorder typically emerges during childhood, and often persists over the individual’s lifespan into adulthood but the presentation of symptoms may differ considerably between children and adults. Without appropriate symptom management, ADHD can significantly interfere with academic, emotional, social, and work functioning. When properly identified, diagnosed, and treated, outcomes in adults with ADHD are encouraging.
This volume is both a compact “how to” reference for use by professionals in their daily work and an ideal educational reference for students. It has a similar structure to other books in the Advances in Psychotherapy series and informs the reader of all aspects involved in the assessment and management of ADHD in adults. The new edition also explores how psychosocial adversity factors impact the development and functional impairments associated with ADHD and highlights strategies used in the multimodal treatment of ADHD in adults. Best practice approaches are offered for common problems encountered when carrying out treatments.A companion volume ADHD in Children and Adolescents is also available.
“The second edition of ADHD in Adults delivers state-of-the-art information that is solidly grounded in theory and empirical evidence. Guidelines for assessment, differential diagnosis, and effective treatment practices are provided in a concise, clear fashion along with many clinician-friendly features (e.g., key concepts stated in page margins, medication decision-making template, appendices, and links to additional resources). Dr. Daly and colleagues have produced an essential resource for all aspiring and current mental health professionals who work with adults with ADHD.”
