ADHD: Grown Up
A Guide to Adolescent & Adult ADHD
Joel L. Young M.D.

An essential clinical resource when working with adult ADHD clients.

ADHD Grown Up thoroughly explores the three major types of ADHD, discussing the impact of the disorder on the individual and showing how symptoms frequently transition from adolescence into adulthood. The book provides clear guidance on how to diagnose adolescents and adults with ADHD, and discuses common co-occurring conditions such as depression, anxiety, learning disorders, fatigue and chronic pain.

Written by a seasoned psychiatrist and clinical researcher, ADHD Grown Up delves into difficult cases such as the rebellious ADHD adolescent, the substance-abusing young adult with longstanding ADHD, and middle-aged women with inattentive ADHD and fibromyalgia. Drawing on scores of actual case studies, ADHD Grown Up demonstrates psychotherapeutic techniques and offers the latest information on medication approaches.
