Balancing research and theory with detailed case examples, Arthur Robin takes readers through each step if his structured intervention program.
This highly practical guide presents an empirically based "nuts-and-bolts" approach to understanding, diagnosing, and treating ADHD in adolescents. Balancing research and theory with detailed case examples, Arthur Robin takes readers through each step of his structured intervention program. Easy-to-follow guidelines illustrate the program's integration of educational, medical, and psychological components. The book contains numerous reproducible handouts and forms, including requisite rating scales and detailed checklists for evaluating ADHD, developing treatment plans, and monitoring psychological, behavioral, family, and academic progress.
"An excellent resource for both therapists and educators. Dr. Robin captures the uniqueness of adolescent issues with regard to assessment and treatment in a scholarly, organized, and readable manner."
-Craig A. Everett, PhD, Director, Arizona Institute for Family Therapy, Tucson, AZ
"Dr. Robin teaches us not only about the facts of the disorder, but also about its nature and the proper means of clinically evaluating it. And just as important, if not more so, [he] tells us what to do to be of help to these youth, their families, and their educators....He does so with an insight, wit, wisdom, and sensitivity to the myriad important clinical issues that are not available in other sources."
-From the Foreword by Russell A. Barkley
If I were asked to select only two or three books that I would consider essential to clinical practice in relation to adolescents with ADHD, this book would head the list. It should be readily available to every clinician who works with adolescents and their families."
-George W. Hynd, EdD, Research Professor & Director, Center for Clinical & Developmental Neuropsychology, University of Georgia, Athens, Georgia
