7/31 Assessment and Treatment of ADHD in Adults and Adolescents 

Many therapists are familiar with AD/HD, but do not feel comfortable diagnosing it or treating it in therapy. Treating adults and adolescents with AD/HD in therapy involves a combination of coaching, using the therapeutic relationship as a way of healing, and helping the clients to recognize the effects AD/HD has had on them so they can change their relationship with it. In addition to the individual work, most clients with ADHD also require thinking and working systemically, whether with the family, partner, school, or work.  In this two hour workshop, we will review how to assess and diagnose AD/HD in adults and adolescents, how to treat AD/HD in adults and adolescents using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, review an evidence based treatment for adult AD/HD, understand how AD/HD affects family and couples relationships, and discuss the art of working with adults and adolescents with AD/HD. 

W. Keith Sutton, Psy.D. is a clinical psychologist who works with adolescents and adults with AD/HD in individual therapy, couples therapy, and family therapy. He provides neuropsychological assessments of AD/HD as well as brief assessments. He is director of the Institute for the Advancement of Psychotherapy and the Bay Area Center for AD/HD, which is a collaboration of therapists, psychiatrists, and an educational therapist who work with children, adolescents, and adults with AD/HD.
