Clinical Case Examples

The previous chapter provided empirical support that the combination of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and pharmacotherapy is an effective treatment approach for adults with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). However, practicing clinicians often do not find such evidence compelling, not because they doubt the veracity of research findings, but rather because it is difficult to translate findings from research protocols into clinically useful procedures to be used with “free-range” patients in dayto-day clinical practice. Moreover, interventions have more life to them when couched within depictions of the challenges faced by practicing clinicians in their daily work. Thus, our goal for this chapter is to provide case examples that illustrate our combined treatment model “in action.”
