Overcoming ADHD in Adolescence: A Cognitive Behavioral Approach - Client Workbook presents a scientifically supported intervention designed to help adolescents learn to manage and cope with their ADHD symptoms. Meant to be used in therapy and in conjunction with the complementary Therapist Guide, the Workbook features lessons on organization and planning, reducing distractibility, and adaptive thinking, as well as an optional section on reducing procrastination. The emphasis is primarily on teaching the adolescent how to learn and use skills to combat ADHD and function independently. The book offers guidance on how parents can be involved in the treatment, enabling them to achieve a better balance between the wish to help adolescents succeed and the need for adolescents to move towards independence. The Workbook also explores how technology can be incorporated into the treatment, concluding with a discussion on how to maintain the gains that adolescents have made in therapy. The book is complete with easy-to-use worksheets and forms.
