Rethinking Adult ADHD : Helping Clients Turn Intentions Into Actions Paperback / softback
In Thinking Through Adult ADHD: Turning Intentions Into Actions, Dr. J. Russell Ramsay provides a first-of-its-kind exploration of the thoughts and beliefs of adults with ADHD and the role they play in psychosocial treatment.
While negative thinking does not cause ADHD, cognitive strategies play a key role in managing and overcoming symptoms.
Dr. Ramsay summarizes emerging research on negative thoughts and beliefs in adults with ADHD, with a focus on escape-avoidance coping patterns. He emphasizes a cognitive theme within a cognitive behavior therapy model for adult ADHD, and targets emotional, behavioral, and relationship problems for work in therapy.
The book explores traditional cognitive change tactics and shows how they can be adapted to adult ADHD to foster the implementation of coping strategies and skills essential for patients, as well as related issues encountered in clinical practice.
