Episode Description

Adults with ADHD face more than their fair share of daily challenges — they struggle to complete tasks, become filled with self-doubt, and end up feeling overwhelmed. Over time, these ADHD challenges snowball and take a toll on mental, emotional, and physical health. The good news is that there are psychosocial ADHD treatments — talk therapies — that can help address these challenges and their downstream effects.

Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) are two natural ADHD treatment approaches familiar to many adults with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. However, many people still have questions about CBT and DBT: How do they differ? What is a typical session like? How well do they work for ADHD symptoms? Get answers to all of these questions in this informative webinar.

In this webinar, you will learn from John Mitchell, Ph.D., about:

  • Similarities and differences between CBT and DBT
  • The evidence for these treatments in helping adults with ADHD
  • The skills taught in CBT and DBT training sessions
  • The structure and format of a CBT or DBT session
  • The amount of time before a person typically sees benefits from CBT or DBT for ADHD
