Michael S. Greenberg, Ph.D. & Flora Zaken-Greenberg, Ph.D.

ADHD is the most frequently diagnosed childhood mental health disorder. Not only has the diagnosis and treatment of ADHD dramatically increased in the US in the past few decades, but according to leading ADHD expert Dr. Russell A. Barkley, “The disorder has been found to exist in virtually every country in which it has been investigated.” ADHD has traditionally been categorized as a disorder of childhood. However, it is now recognized that a large percentage of adults still wrestle with the frustrations of ADHD in their day to day functioning. Considerable progress has been made in diagnosing and treating ADHD. The central theme of this book is ADHD can be successfully treated and managed. Increasing your knowledge and self-awareness of ADHD, along with sustained motivation, are your best tools for living a successful, productive, and happy life. Over the years of treating ADHD we have generated self-help strategies to reduce the number of errors people make in their day to day activities. We have also generated our own model of ADHD that builds upon prior research in the field. Once you have a firm understanding of ADHD you can be creative and make up your own self-help techniques. Many of you have already done some of this on your own, and this book can help you systematically build upon your successes. For parents of children with ADHD, many self-help techniques can be scaled down and modified to use with your child. While a child does not have to remember where he or she put their car keys they certainly need to remember to bring their homework home, not lose their school supplies, and study for tomorrow’s quiz. Our theory and treatment approach to ADHD is derived from cognitive-behavioral psychology. This book is intended to present both a comprehensive model of ADHD, as well as a practical guide for managing ADHD in real life for children and adults.
