ADHD Comorbidities: Handbook for ADHD Complications in Children and Adults

From Critiques and Reviews:

“This book offers a rich compendium of information about what is currently known about ADHD and how it can be most effectively treated in all its complexities.”

From the Forword. F. Xavier Castellanos, M.D. , New York University Child Study Center and Nathan Kline Institute for Psychiatric Research, New York, New York.

This is the most up-to-date book on this topic currently available and richly rewards the reader, whether clinician, scientist, or student, with its substantial breadth of coverage and detail.

Every conceivable psychiatric comorbidity is covered, by experts in each. Specific chapters are devoted to assessment of ADHD and comorbid disorders and the variety of treatments: pharmacotherapy, psychosocial interventions, cognitive therapy for adults, and tailoring treatment to best fit each person and family. Given the high prevalence of ADHD, this volume should be on every clinician’s shelf.

“It is a comprehensive and exhaustive volume, with ample references, suggestions for further readings, and even useful web sites. While the information can be overwhelming, the variety of therapeutic responses to the syndrome—from cognitive and behavioral therapy to appropriate medication—offer a glimmer of hope for concerned teachers and beleaguered family members.”
