This far-reaching work from renowned scientist-practitioner Russell A. Barkley provides a radical shift of perspective on ADHD, arguing that the disorder is fundamentally a developmental problem of self-control, and that a deficit in attention is a secondary, and not universal, characteristic. 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. A significant contribution to the literature on both the neuropsychological processes of self-control and the nature of ADHD, this volume has significant implications for research and clinical practice. Its theoretical innovation and depth make it a valuable text for advanced courses in child psychopathology, abnormal child psychology, and clinical neuropsychology.
