ADHD in adults is estimated to be around 1 percent, with rates as high as 25 percent in the prison population. Reflecting the growing awareness of the seriousness of the problem, ADHD in Adults provides a comprehensive look at the occurrence of ADHD in adults, providing a broad overview of the theory of ADHD, its assessment, and treatment. Balancing theory with practical intervention techniques, the book examines such core deficits as impulsivity, inattention and poor problem solving, as well as associated problems such as anger and antisocial behavior. Structured interventions, that can be provided individually or in group settings, are included with each chapter.
