The Hidden Disorder: A Clinician's Guide to Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder in Adults
It is estimated that over 15 million adults in America have significant attentional disorders. These adults are often misdiagnosed and misunderstood, often at a great personal toll. The Hidden Disorder: A Clinician's Guide to Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder in Adults helps mental health practitioners recognize this overlooked diagnosis and treat ADHD in adults, offering relief and hope for distressed relationships and careers.
Through accessible writing and engaging case studies, Robert J. Resnick, PhD, provides expert clinical guidance on etiology, differential diagnosis, assessment, and treatment. Adults with ADHD often require intermittent treatment at different points in their lives. This book provides various treatment interventions over the lifespan. Also covered are the various co-morbid and look alike disorders that can confound diagnosis and lead to unsuccessful treatment. A highly practical book, it is written in nontechnical language that builds on already existing clinical skills. This book brings clarity and hope to an important but underidentified area of practice.
