J. Russell Ramsay, Ph.D. explains how cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) aims to equip patients with the coping skills needed to manage and overcome some of the most common ADHD hot spots: disorganization, poor time management, and workplace challenges. It is often used in conjunction with medication, building lasting life skills that remain strong even after a pill wears off.

Listener testimonials:

  • “This was very helpful and gave me concrete ideas for tasks I can begin immediately. THANK YOU! “
  • “Loved this podcast, Dr. Ramsey is a great presenter — I found his suggestions and insights very relevant and practical. Thank you!”
  • “I was just diagnosed with Adult ADD, and I guess I was still in denial about it because I saw myself in EVERY ONE of these examples. It is very reassuring to me that not only are there so many other people out there struggling with “failure” like I am, but that there are options to overcome and cope with the realities of ADD. Thank you!”
