Purchase Nonmedication Treatments for Adult ADHD
Fortunately, psychologist, researcher, and author J. Russell Ramsay, Ph.D., has reviewed all of the available research and distilled it in this book. It will be an invaluable resource for researchers, clinicians, and even consumers who want to make informed decisions about nonmedical treatments.
Based on his review of the research, Ramsay states that there is strong support for psychosocial treatments for adults with ADHD, including psychotherapy and psycho-education (teaching the adult and/or family members about the condition).
More research is needed on the benefits of academic accommodations and career counseling. Neurofeedback still lacks enough solid studies to say whether it is helpful. As for other complementary and alternative treatments, there is little to be excited about in research literature.
