Editorial Reviews

Review

"There are few places where the wisdom of science and careful practice are articulated as well as in the second edition of Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder: A Handbook for Diagnosis and Treatment....The state-of-the-art treatment section makes it clear that psychosocial interventions are an essential part of ADHD treatment. Especially work with patients and families, and a practical chapter on working with ADHD children in schools....Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder: A Clinical Workbook is a nice companion to the handbook, and includes most of the forms necessary to supplement the model clinical evaluation and treatment program for individuals with ADHD. It is a 'must' for the clinician who would like to follow the guidance of Barkley and his colleagues. Together, these two excellent and practical guides for practitioners, as well as useful reference tool for investigators. Barkley and his colleagues are to be congratulated on another job well done." --Psychiatric Times

-- Review

A comprehensive, multi-informant workbook suggesting the need for cooperation among individuals to evaluate data from several sources...The use of norms and standard deviations are quite useful in the diagnostic realm while the interview forms and history forms are excellent information-gathering devices so important to the global understanding of the condition and associated difficulties...The parent handout sheets provide extremely concise, easily understood information which may be very helpful in working with parents and teachers. In addition, the home-school forms allow foreffective ongoing interaction between individuals closely involved with students as well as assist in planning intervention strategies and evaluate effectiveness of such strategies. -- Psychological Examiner (review of the previous edition)

15 of 16 people found the following review helpful By Hugh Crethar on October 4, 2000
Format: Hardcover
The first edition of "Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder : A Handbook for Diagnosis and Treatment" was generally considered a must-read for all Clinical Child Psychologists and other practitioners who worked or planned to work with children with behavior disorders. The second edition is even better, as it should be. This edition clarifies how we have learned much about ADHD in the past decade. The book's coverage of relevant literature, findings, and data-based theories and treatments makes it one of the very best books on ADHD available on the market. I recommend it to all who plan to work with behavior-disordered children. Also, this text should be in most public libraries to allow parents the opportunity to read accurate writings about ADHD.

Format: Spiral-bound
Dr. Barkley has contributed an extremely beneficial companion to his handbook for diagnosis and treatment of ADHD. The rating forms are very useful for the clinician assessing ADHD and comorbid features. Dr. Barkley's discussion offers extremely helpful guidelines for assessment and treatment of ADHD and various emotional-behavioral issues which may accompany or mimic ADHD. This volume is a must for any practicing health or educational professional involved in the assessment and treatment of ADHD.

Format: Hardcover
I found this text to be a most useful resource for ADHD from a bio-psychosocial point of view. It included an exhaustive literature review of studies, of both children and adults, with ADHD. I also appreciated the discussions on cause/ effect relationships. I highly recommend this text for Physicians and Psychologists/Therapists working together and being on the same page with patients suffering from and living with ADHD.

Barkley & Murphy offer a superb resource for the beginning and seasoned clinician who seeks to provide thorough screening for the cluster of potential psychiatric issues surrounding the 'ADHD' phenomenon.

This resource is based on the findings of ongoing best practices research. It offers multiple refereces. And it offers many suggestions for ongoing assessment.

This resource is particularly useful for those clinicians who communicate regularly with primary care providers as a means of documenting progress or raising questions about modifying treatment strategies.

Finally, it serves to discover behavioral data which is so vital when considering medication as a therapeutic strategy.

This is what I wanted. I don't really know how valid this is but it is a nice checklist to measure add in adults. It certainly is better than the computer tests. It is nice to have somthing objective for adults.
