Sample text

Thus, in the course of the Young–Bramham Programme, and particularly in our conclusions in Chapter 14, we discuss the influence of 20 ADHD IN ADULTS self-fulfilling prophecies on self-esteem. We emphasise the creative, resilient and flexible aspects of the ADHD personality and discuss how the client may have previously applied these characteristics successfully to achieve personal goals. Through the reappraisal of personal capabilities and the application of techniques and skills developed throughout the Young–Bramham Programme, people with ADHD can be encouraged to develop a sense of self-efficacy and purpose.

The comorbid conditions commonly associated with the disorder are discussed in addition to differential diagnoses. We review the strengths and limitations regarding sources of information, including the structured clinical interview, neuropsychological assessment, rating scales and corroborative documentation. DIAGNOSTIC CLASSIFICATION OF ADHD There are three recognised symptoms of ADHD – inattention, hyperactivity and impulsivity – and two formal diagnostic classifications to draw on, the US Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM-IV) (American Psychiatric Association, 1994) and the World Health Organization’s International Classification of Disease (ICD-10) (World Health Organization, 1992).

Unless this perspective is included in sessions, the therapist is likely to have difficulty fostering engagement and developing a therapeutic alliance. We suggest, therefore, that the final module is always included to summarise the techniques introduced in previous modules, and determine and/or reiterate those which have been beneficial for the client. The module follows a relapse-prevention approach whereby a plan to identify and manage ‘risk’ situations is developed to support the individual and refer to when they feel vulnerable and are most likely to slip back into old habits.
