Product Description

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

got this for my son, who is getting support from a clinic in ADHD. He seems to be benefiting very much. I'm thinking i should get my own copy as well.

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.

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.

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.

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.

A helpful guide Oct. 16 2007
By Shelley Peery - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This workbook covers all the angles in the CBT of adult ADHD. It's useful in its structure and its content. While even manual based approached must be individualized, allowing the client to have all the homework assignments in one place and with full explanations is very valuable for the success of the outcome.
