Description

Increasing numbers of adult clients are seeking evaluation and treatment for adult ADHD. Although medications offer symptom relief, most adults with ADHD will require concurrent psychosocial treatment modified to address their unique needs, especially the consistent use of the known coping strategies. Cognitive-behavior therapy (CBT) adapted for adult ADHD is an evidence-supported treatment, though most clients report that they “know what to do, but have difficulties doing it,” which reflects the fact that ADHD is a performance problem, not a knowledge problem. In this webinar, Dr. J. Russell Ramsay will review the contemporary understanding of the nature of ADHD and how this model informs psychosocial treatment. Dr. Ramsay will illustrate the components of an implementation-focused CBT approach adapted to adult ADHD, including the role of cognitions, behaviors, and emotions as well as showing a video demonstration of a session of this approach.
