Cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) adapted for adult ADHD is an evidence-supported treatment. Most adults with ADHD, though say that they “know what to do, but have difficulties doing it,” which reflects the fact that ADHD is a performance problem, not a knowledge problem. In this webinar, Dr. Ramsay will review the contemporary understanding of the nature of ADHD and how this model informs CBT for adult ADHD. Dr. Ramsay will illustrate the components of an implementation-focused CBT approach adapted to adult ADHD, including the role of emotions and social functioning.

- Attendees will be able to describe to proposed main cognitive theme in the thoughts and beliefs of adults with ADHD
