Review

"...it should be considered an extremely important and much overdue contribution to the ADHD clinical literature...Safren, et al. deserve kudos for taking the first step down that path with their splendid volumes, which, in addition to helping adults with ADHD, also shed light on the work yet to be done."--Journal of Attention Disorders

5.0 out of 5 stars Thorough and effective, but work with a therapist! May 29 2012
By Margaret Thompson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
There has been a trend for books to talk about the benefits of Adult ADHD, reframing it as an advantage rather than a disease. There is some sense in this. It's good to understand that attention problems, etc., aren't simply a character flaw. But these books don't really help ADHD adults cope.

That's where this book comes in. It's a top-to-bottom, adult ADHD problem-solving system. It's designed to be used in conjunction with a cognitive therapist, but it could be used alone. It's pretty "hardcore" though, with a lot of exercises that require follow-through, so really severe ADHD cases might not be able to do much with it alone.

The workbook focuses on "rewiring" your brain with new habits and thought patterns. These exercises aren't for the faint of heart. Even the simplest ones require some concentration. But the whole point is to build up the attention span, find ways to circumvent the "procrastination reflex," etc.

Doing just some of the work in the book will show real results. But ultimately it's probably best to work this through with a therapist, in order to avoid "quitting" partway through, and adding one more negative notch to your self-esteem belt. (ADHD people are notorious for feeling bad about their ever- increasing "failures" in life.)

So treat yourself right. Grab the book, and start seeing the best ADHD specialist you can find.

P.S.: Anyone with relationship issues that are effected by ADHD should consider The ADHD Marriage Workbook: A User-Friendly Guide to Improving Your Relationship which I recently received for review. It is written by a therapist who has ADHD himself and filled with practical, actionable (ADHD-friendly presentation) for improving any romantic relationship where ADHD is causing issues.

5.0 out of 5 stars works great for me March 20 2012
By Rocky - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
i just started using this book a couple of weeks ago, so far so good. it has helped me a lot with my organizational skills and learning to prioritize. i also really like the worksheets it comes with. i print out multiple copies and work on breaking down certain tasks/issues. doing this helps me feel less overwhelmed and more in control. organization is something i have been struggling with my whole life as well as managing my distractibility, this is a lifelong process but the skills i am learning from this book in conjunction with seeing my doctor are definitely putting me on the right path.

3.0 out of 5 stars Last four chapters on adaptive thinking are informative, the rest is elementary June 3 2013
By BK Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The real meat of the book is in the last four chapters. The first ten chapters can essentially be found in any Stephen Covey or David Allen productivity book, so it's disappointing to see highly trained doctors spend so much time on mundane topics like creating a filing system (10 weeks if you were seeing a therapist!). I wouldn't waste my time or money paying a doctor to tell me how to use a calendar and notebook. It's not a lack of knowing how to use a calendar that plagues most adults with ADHD, it's all the noise going on in the distracted brain that prevents them from using the tools that they already have.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Use These Approaches With My Own Patients March 4 2011
By Dr. Emily Kensington - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
In addition to medication, therapy and behavioral interventions are the most popular treatment for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). I use these concepts and methods with my own adult ADHD patients. A large benefit of tracking ones thoughts and behaviors is that over time you can literally see your own progress when charted on a graph, which grants relief and continued inspiration for ADHD sufferers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good treatment program for self-help May 23 2013
By Gregory - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As someone who has been lucky enough to find a Primary Care Physician willing to prescribe my Adult ADHD medicine, I have the benefit of NOT having to see a doctor every month, and NOT having to waste the considerable financial expenses that it would take to see a psychiatrist every month. Although I cannot speak from experience, I simply canot imagine any kind of therapy that a psychiatrist could provide that would amount to anything more than merely educating me about coping methods and strategies for minimizing the negative impact ADHD could have on my life. All of the education and coping mechanisms have been just as easy to learn by reading books and informing myself. Ultimately, there is no guarantee that even a Psychiatrist would have any greater ability to teach me these things than a book would, thus I have opted to try to help myself. To that end, the suggestions made here in this book are not necessarily new or different from those made in other self-help books which have been in circulation even longer than this book has. What may make this book better is the quantitative and objective methods proposed for quantifying the progress being made, and helping to build upon this progress in an additive way over time. Although the book is overpriced for what it is, (especially since I bought the Kindle version), still, it is a valuable tool for the Adult with ADHD who, like me, has chosen to DIY their own therapy.
