Editorial Reviews

Review

"At last, a terrific book about ADHD from the family systems perspective! The authors provide everything the clinician could want--compassionate and competent case examples; encyclopedic information about ADHD, including a multigenerational look at family patterns of the disorder; and detailed treatment planning guides. Wide-ranging yet focused, this book is a 'must read' for every practitioner with an interest in ADHD and families." --Augustus Y. Napier, PhD, Author of The Fragile Bond

"Solidly grounded in research and practice, this eminently practical book provides the guidance clinicians need to detect and treat ADHD in the family context. The authors explain both the 'whats' and the 'hows' of interventions for this complex condition, offering guidelines for working with other professionals as well as with families. The book also serves as a succinct introduction to family systems theory and process. Its illustrations of the intergenerational transmission of symptomatology are especially strong." --William C. Nichols, EdD, ABPP, President, International Family Therapy Association

"This book moves beyond focusing on individual symptoms to understanding and treating ADHD in a family context. Especially helpful are the session-by-session assessment and treatment models for children, adolescents, and adults, along with numerous case examples illustrating how therapists can mobilize family resources to enhance intervention effectiveness. This book is essential reading for anyone working with ADHD populations. I am strongly recommending it to staff, interns, and postdoctoral residents working in our ADHD clinic. It also will be useful as a supplementary text for graduate courses in family therapy and child assessment and therapy." --Natalie Rathvon, PhD, District of Columbia Commission on Mental Health Services; George Washington University


"Highly readable and practical....One of [the book's] strengths lies in bringing a family systems approach to the ADHD literature. It is a long-needed perspective that will do much to influence a shift away from individualized approaches, in which the diagnosed family member is scapegoated, to one that involves the family unit working together supportively....Mental health professionals working with ADHD would be wise to add this title to their library."--Readings

This is a great read for understanding how ADHD plays into family dynamics and understanding the impact on each member. I recommend this book for anyone with ADHD in their family, counselors, therapists, and social workers or those who work with families struggling with ADHD.
