Attention Deficit : A Practitioner's Handbook, Paperback / softback Book

Attention Deficit : A Practitioner's Handbook Paperback / softback

Description

Most clinicians rely on only an interview to diagnose ADHD in adults.

With the recent media "overkill" about ADHD, more and more patients have already read numerous articles and books about the topic making it even harder for practitioners to differentiate between symptoms due to ADHD and symptoms of a hypersensitive patient.

As a result, the clinician should no longer rely on just an interview but a more sphoisticated and reliable method. Attention Deficit: A Practitioner's Handbook offers practical guidance to diagnose ADHD with special consideration to comorbid and differential diagnoses.

This volume also challenges practitioners to move beyond current diagnostic criteria and presents arguments for standardized testing in addition to the traditional interview.

Insightful commentaries on major points of current controversy in this area of study are also highlighted.

Dr. Triolo, author of the Attention Deficit Scales for Adults (ADSA), also discusses theoretical perspectives of ADHD and bridges the gap between the research and clinical practice.

A most practical volume that clinicians will appreciate in their library.
