Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is not a magic pill to cure ADHD symptoms. But more and more adults today are using it, and with good reason: New research confirms the benefits of CBT as an effective and life-changing therapy for people with attention and executive-function deficits. 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, just to name a few. It is often used in conjunction with medication, building lasting life skills that remain strong even after a pill wears off.
In this webinar, you will learn about:
1. New research into the thinking patterns of adults with ADHD
2. Common cognitive traps and fallacies reported by adults with ADHD
3. How a negative belief system encourages stress
4. How faulty thinking patterns sabotage ADHD coping mechanisms
5. Strategies for identifying and changing negative thought patterns
6. The benefits of Dialectic Behavior Therapy (DBT)
