"Few have done more than Solanto and her colleagues to advance our knowledge of cognitive-behavioral therapy for adults with ADHD. Now Solanto has produced a detailed, highly useful 'how-to-do-it' guide to implementing this effective approach. The treatment addresses the principal executive function deficits that characterize ADHD and helps adults manage their disorder more effectively. This is a 'must-have' manual for therapists, clinical trainees and graduate students, and others working with adults with ADHD."--Russell A. Barkley, PhD, ABPP, ABCN, Clinical Professor of Psychiatry, Virginia Treatment Center for Children and Virginia Commonwealth University School of Medicine
"Solanto, one of the foremost experts in CBT for adult ADHD, has produced a state-of-the-art book that represents a tremendous advance for clinicians. This practical volume provides the rationale for conducting CBT with this population along with 'how-to' instructions and materials. I highly recommend it."--Lenard Adler, MD, Department of Psychiatry and Director, Adult ADHD Program, New York University School of Medicine
"This book presents one of the few evidence-based psychosocial treatments for adults with ADHD that have emerged in recent years. Solanto's group treatment approach is an asset to clinicians. It allows multiple patients to benefit at once as they gain coping skills and receive social support from others with similar impairments."--Steven A. Safren, PhD, ABPP, Department of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital
"Pills do not build skills. Adults with ADHD need to learn the basic organizational skills that are essential to activities of daily living, even when symptoms improve. This book is a clearly written, hands-on tool that will help therapists move beyond the prescription to provide effective psychological treatment."--Margaret D. Weiss, MD, PhD, Department of Psychiatry, University of British Columbia, Canada
