Psychotherapy for Adult ADHD

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a relatively common neurobiological disorder of childhood that often has long-term effects on behavior, learning, cognition, and emotional functioning (Brown, 2000). ADHD affects about 3-5% of school-aged children (APA, 2000), and the prevalence in adults is estimated to be around 4-5%. As many as 50-70% of children with ADHD continue to experience clinically significant symptoms in adulthood.
