This workshop focuses on assessing and treating ADULTS with ADHD. Most adults who have ADHD come to therapy for other reasons than ADHD. This seems to be especially true in couples therapy. Well over 80% of adults with ADHD will have one other mental health diagnosis and well over half will have at least two other diagnoses. However, treating these other problems without directly addressing the ADHD can leave both patients and therapists frustrated because of an inadequate response to treatment. Assessment will cover screening for adult ADHD as well as how to conduct a comprehensive evaluation. Three empirically supported psychological treatments will be compared and contrasted. Also covered will be how to help the loved ones (partner, parents, siblings, etc.) of adults with ADHD.

Learning Objectives:

      1. Describe who to screen for adult ADHD and how to conduct a comprehensive assessment of adult ADHD.
      2.  Compare three empirically supported psychological treatments of adult ADHD.
      3.  Describe how adult ADHD affects the couple relationship and how to work with couples affected by adult ADHD.

      Level: Intermediate
