Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a disorder that afflicts anywhere from 2 to 5 percent of the adult population (roughly 8-10 million Americans). Among several therapeutic treatment approaches available as a supplement or alternative to medication, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) has emerged as the most successful and has the strongest current evidence base of support, while integrative treatment programs that combine CBT and prescription drugs have shown even more promise. In this volume, Ramsay and Rostain provide an overview of symptoms, assessment and diagnosis issues for adult ADHD. Utilizing research, case examples, and a combined biological and psychosocial treatment approach, the authors discuss the many complicated factors that go into treatment, relapse prevention, and long-term management of adult ADHD, including particular focus on comorbidity and medication issues.
