Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Adult ADHD: An Integrative Psychosocial and Medical Approach has been revised, updated, and expanded for this second edition and remains the definitive book for clinicians seeking to treat adults with ADHD. Clinicians will continue to benefit from the presentation of an evidence-supported treatment approach for adults with ADHD that combines cognitive behavioral therapy and pharmacotherapy adapted for this challenging clinical population. The updated edition of the book offers new and expanded case examples, and the authors emphasize more detailed, clinician-friendly "how to" instructions for the delivery of specific interventions for adult patients with ADHD. Understanding that most adults with ADHD say, "I know exactly what I need to do, but I just cannot make myself do it," the book pays special attention to the use of implementation strategies to help patients carry out the necessary coping skills to achieve improvements in functioning and well-being in their daily lives. In addition to providing an outline of their treatment approach, Drs. Ramsay and Rostain provide an up-to-date review of the current scientific understanding of the etiology, developmental course, and life outcomes of adults with ADHD as well as the components of an thorough diagnostic evaluation. As an added clinical resource, Drs. Ramsay and Rostain have also produced a companion patient handbook written for adults with ADHD, The Adult ADHD Tool Kit: Using CBT to Facilitate Coping Inside and Out, which clinicians can use with their patients.

I was already so ashamed of myself...I got to the point where I would duck behind shelves at the grocery store to avoid talking to people...I went out of the house as little as possible and would never invite anybody to come to my home, other than my best friend. I was determined to hide this elephant that had taken over my life. After being diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder at the age of thirty six, Kim Gay spent several frustrating years looking for answers to her questions about the disorder only to find that very little was known about ADHD when it pertained to adults. Her quest for knowledge and enlightenment inspired her to write this book with the hope of helping others who keep finding themselves at the same dead end. Hiding an Elephant explains in detail the symptoms of adult ADHD, and through her personal experience, Kim Gay encourages other sufferers not to be ashamed of their condition any longer. 'A relaxed, easy reading experience filled with humor, insight and life strategies. Gain a personal look into the unique challenges of being a child, a daughter, a student and eventually an adult, a wife, and a mother with ADHD.' Michelle L. Solo, LMSW, ACSW

Essential advice from the author of the bestselling Get Out Of My Life Today's children--from toddlers to preteens--challenge their parents in ways that would have been unthinkable a generation ago, notes Anthony E. Wolf, and parents are often uncertain about how to cope. In his new book, Wolf presents a fresh perspective on this less pleasant behavior and a surprisingly simple method for dealing with it. He argues that punishments and rewards don't work and may even be counterproductive. Instead, parents must act swiftly and decisively following Wolf's easy but powerful technique. Using numerous examples of effective and ineffective parent-child interactions, he offers practical advice on a wide range of basic issues, from tantrums and back talk, to getting kids off to school in the morning and eliminating sibling fights. Humorous and easy to use, The Secret of Parenting is guaranteed to dramatically increase the joy parents get from raising their children.
