Description

Executive dysfunction is a major cause of educational and occupational impairment in adults with ADHD. Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) has been shown to be efficacious in remediating executive dysfunction in randomized clinical trials in adult ADHD in both group and individual modalities. This workshop will review the foundations, treatment parameters, and specific components of a well-validated CBT intervention (Solanto et al, Amer J of Psychiatry, 2010) as it is being implemented in adults with ADHD and, more recently, tailored to the needs of college students with ADHD. Specific CBT intervention methods include: (1) Effective use of daily planners and organizers; (2) Contingent self-reinforcement; (3) “Chunking” of complex tasks into manageable parts; (4) Minimization of external distractors, (5) Use of a matrix to differentiate “urgent” from “important” tasks; (6) Flow-charting of goals and sub-components; (7) Visualization of long-term rewards and consequences (8) “Cognitive reframing” to target dysfunctional “automatic thoughts” that engender anxiety and depression, which are more prevalent in ADHD. Various “mantras” that encompass adaptive cognitive self-instructions are repeated strategically throughout the program in order that they may be internalized as guides to behavior. New modules (mindfulness, sleep) that have been added to the core program, and guidelines for adapting the group program for individual therapy will also be reviewed.
