Treatment of ADHD in Adults (1)

Adult attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a common mental health condition that has been estimated to affect one out of twenty people worldwide. It causes persistent problems, such as difficulty paying attention, hyperactivity and impulsive behavior. Adult ADHD can lead to unstable relationships, poor work or school performance, low self-esteem, and other problems, which can severely reduce the individual quality of life. ADHD begins in childhood, but often is not recognized or diagnosed before adulthood. In adults, hyperactivity may decrease, but struggles with impulsiveness, restlessness and difficulty paying attention often continue.
Treatment for adult ADHD is similar to treatment for childhood ADHD, consisting of medication, psychological counseling (psychotherapy) and several supportive approaches. This article gives a brief overview of current approaches and Communication-Focused Therapy® as developed by the author.
