Product Description

Review

What s nice about this resource is its potential to offer thoughtful and evidence based–psychological intervention, as recommended in current and future national documentation.  It supports the person to be understood and viewed as a whole and not as a problem.   (Journal of Mental Health, 1 January 2013)

From the Back Cover

The first edition of this book introduced the Young–Bramham Programme, a pioneering approach to cognitive behavioural treatment for ADHD in adults, which was well–received by clinical and academic communities alike. Based on the latest findings in the field, the authors have expanded the second edition to incorporate treatment strategies not only for adults, but also for adolescents with ADHD.

The book begins with introductory and conceptual material, after which a series of treatment chapters present ′modules′ for managing the core symptoms of attention, memory, organization and time–management, and impulsivity. Each module provides practical guidance and CBT techniques for adolescent and adult populations. Modules on comorbid and associated problems include material on problem–solving, interpersonal relationships, anxiety, frustration and anger, low mood and depression, sleep, substance misuse and preparing for the future. Each module provides a structured outline for group delivery and is supported by a companion website which provides downloadable materials for use by clients and therapists. Modules can be selected and combined to treat each client′s individual problems.

This is a very useful resource with clear guidance for professionals, individual and group formats, just enough theory and clinically relevance for current service guidance.

Pills don't create skills 6 Sept. 2012
By Russell Thompson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a valuable resource that I used for developing my group intervention for adults with ADHD. Lots of practical stuff. Well organized. The authors obviously have strong experience helping people with ADHD. Other books give more detail about the underlying mechanisms and supporting research, but I don't think that you want to get bogged down in that when teaching to a room full of ADHD-ers. I was disappointed in the website that is mentioned throughout the book. I expected powerpoint slides for each module but it just has copies of the tables from the book and many in a weird Microsoft format that I couldn't read with my Mac. Many of the slides are from the previous edition. As of August, 2012, the publisher had not updated the site with the latest slides. But don't let that stop you. This is the best resource I have seen for teaching ADHD coping skills to adults.

A valuable addition to the ADHD./CBT library 9 Aug. 2013
By Gina Pera - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
In this second edition, Susan Young and Jessica Bramham extend CBT strategies for ADHD from adults to adolescents.

The introductory material explains the diagnosis, a cognitive-behavioral model of ADHD, and evidence for psychological interventions. (Prior to that are well-worth-reading forewords from top ADHD experts Margaret Weiss, M.D., Ph.D., and Sam Goldstein, Ph.D..).

Next comes an explanation of the Young-Bramham programme (the authors are UK-based), including components such as psychoeducation, motivational interviewing, cognitive reframing of the past, and behavioral techniques.

From there, the book is organized in one set of modules for managing the core symptoms (attention, memory, organization, and impulsivity) and another for comorbid and associated problems (problem-solving, interpersonal relationships, anxiety, frustration and anger, low mood and depression, sleep, and substance misuse).

This module approach is helpfully pragmatic because individuals with ADHD are just that: individuals. And they experience variable symptoms of this highly variable condition. Instead of having to wade through narrative that might not apply to an individual, the clinician or lay reader can turn to the relevant trouble spots.

This guide, along with Mary Solanto's Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy for Adult ADHD: Targeting Executive Dysfunction and Ramsay/Rostain's Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy for Adult ADHD: An Integrative Psychosocial and Medical Approach (Practical Clinical Guidebooks), greatly enrich the resources available to clinicians seeking to help individuals affected by adults with ADHD and their loved ones.

Excellent tool for clinicians 19 May 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
As a clinician who regularly works with adults with ADHD, I am thrilled to find this valuable resource. The step-by-step treatment plan covers the most common issues that I encounter. The visuals are wonderful teaching tools to use with clients. The book is well-written and easy to follow. It is a must-have for clinicians who work with this population.
