Description
The difficulties described by most adults with ADHD are not associated with lack of knowledge of coping steps but rather inconsistent use and implementation of effective coping strategies. This intermediate workshop describes interventions used in an evidence-supported cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) approach for treating adult ADHD. Moreover, step-by-step methods for helping adults with ADHD to implement coping strategies to improve their daily functioning are emphasized. Interventions target common areas of impairment that constitute the presenting issues for most adults with ADHD who seek out psychotherapy.
Learning Objectives
1. Summarize and recognize the role executive function and motivational deficits play in the common presenting problems and impairments for which adults with ADHD seek treatment.
2. Identify specific ways to define task objectives for patients with adult ADHD that will increase the likelihood of follow-through in their daily lives.
3. Cite the four components of CBT for adult ADHD used to enhance patients' motivation and follow-through on the use of coping strategies.
4. Identify a common cognitive distortion, escape behavior, and emotional reaction commonly observed in recurring procrastination and methods to intervene at each of these levels.
