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.
