KBT behandling i grupp för vuxna med ADHD

Detta är en Master-uppsats från Lunds universitet/Institutionen för psykologi

Sammanfattning: The purpose of the present study was to examine the potential effectiveness of a group cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) for adults with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) with residual significant clinical symptoms after being stabilized on medication. All adult patients with ADHD in an outpatient psychiatric clinic who had been stabilized on medication but still showed clinical significant symptoms were offered to participate in a 13 week group treatment program for ADHD. Thirty patients who chose to participate were compared with fifteen adult ADHD patients from the waiting list. These patients received no CBT training but had a weekly 30-minute session with a psychiatric nurse during 13 weeks with the focus on following up the effects of their medication. Assessments before and after treatment included ADHD symptom severity and associated anxiety and depression. At outcome, patients having received CBT treatment showed significantly lower self rated ADHD symptoms than the group that had no CBT. These data support the hypothesis that CBT for adults with residual symptoms is a feasible, acceptable, and potentially efficacious next-step treatment approach, worthy of further testing.
