ADHD and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Share, Send, or Save

Cognitive behavioral therapy is often part of an ADHD management plan. Centered on the premise that how a person interprets an event is more important than the actual event, it focuses on thoughts rather than behaviors, with the goal of reducing dysfunctional thoughts as a way to change behavior.

Not everyone with ADHD requires cognitive behavioral therapy, but it can provide important benefits:

Cognitive behavioral therapy can give you a better understanding of ADHD and how it affects your daily life. It can help you figure out which behaviors and areas of your life you want to change and how you can make these changes happen. Cognitive behavioral therapy can give you strategies to help you finish tasks and be more organized and productive.
