Front Cover
Oxford University Press, 2020 - Psychology - 162 pages
"This Client Workbook is an accompaniment to the Therapist Guide, "Overcoming ADHD in Adolescence: A Cognitive Behavioral Approach." The treatment and manuals are designed for clients to complete with the help of a therapist who is familiar with cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and/or structured therapeutic approaches. The program is designed to help adolescent clients with ADHD learn skills to help them cope with their ADHD symptoms. Core modules on organizing and planning, reducing distractibility, and adaptive thinking are included, as is an optional module on reducing procrastination. The emphasis is primarily on teaching the adolescent how to learn skills to combat ADHD and function independently. Information is provided regarding how to include parents in the treatment-inviting a parent or parents in at the end of sessions, including parents in goal setting in joint sessions with the adolescent and optional coaching sessions without the adolescent present. The guide concludes with a discussion of how to help the client maintain the gains that they have made in treatment. The client workbook and therapist guide include a discussion of how to incorporate technology into the treatment and "signposts of change" sections in each chapter. The manuals include many worksheets and forms as well as a link to an assessment measure that can be used repeatedly to gauge progress in treatment"--
