Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Barkley (psychology, psychiatry, & neurology, U. of Massachusetts Medical Center) offers a counter to current conceptualizations of Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder, arguing that it is fundamentally a problem of self-control, and that inattention is a secondary characteristic. His hypotheses draw on neuropsychological research concerning the ability to delay one's response to external stimuli and the development of the executive functions involved in self-control. Implications for research and clinical practice are significant.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

This far-reaching work from renowned scientist-practitioner Russell A. Barkley provides a radical shift of perspective on ADHD. The volume synthesizes neuropsychological research and theory on the executive functions, illuminating how normally functioning individuals are able to bring behavior under the control of time and orient their actions toward the future. Meticulously applying this model to an examination of the cognitive and social impairments manifested by ADHD, Barkley offers compelling new directions for thinking about and treating this disorder.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p.351-397) and index.
