Editorial Reviews


"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

"Arthur Robin offers a wide-ranging review of issues pertinent to the diagnosis and treatment of ADHD in adolescence. His careful focus on both broad concepts and the details of the clinical process addresses an array of important topics in an area that is too often ignored." --Michael Gordon, PhD, SUNY Health Science Center at Syracuse, Professor, Department of Psychiatry, Director, ADHD Program

"This is an unusually rich volume in which the clinical realities of working with adolescents with ADHD stand out in vivid and highly relevant detail. This comprehensive volume addresses every aspect of clinical work one might encounter, and theory and research are brought alive in the vivid, personal case descriptions. The author clearly understands how theory, research, and clinical practice need to be intertwined if the best interests of the client and family are to be served. The currency of the research incorporated in this volume is critically important as recent changes in diagnostic criteria have impacted the way in which clinicians might most effectively diagnose and treat adolescents with ADHD. From a discussion of the most current understanding of the neurobiological origins of ADHD and the development of temperament, to the most effective ways of conceptualizing and prioritizing treatment goals, including those related to working with the family, this volume stands out as one of a very few books on ADHD which meets the needs of both researcher and clinician.
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

"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

"This book will prove to be enormously useful for practitioners who evaluate and treat adolescents with problems related to attention deficit disorders. Dr. Robin's approach is especially successful in balancing medical and psychological aspects of treatment. The sections on mental health treatment, with their focus on teaching parents effective ways of communicating and setting limits, are most helpful. Perhaps most important, unlike many other works on ADHD, the book specifically addresses important psychological characteristics of adolescence that affect this age group's understanding and acceptance of treatment." --Esther H. Wender, MD, Clinical Professor of Pediatrics, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Bronx, New York

Fine and interesting and useful once you have a diagnosis but not so useful if you haven't. I would only recommend it if you have already have a diagnosis
