Cognitive behavioral therapy

One widely used approach in treating adult ADHD is cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). This type of psychotherapy helps people change negative and unhelpful thought patterns into positive, healthier ways of thinking. With CBT, you get the tools to help deal with stresses and challenges in life. Working on self-esteem is often a very important aspect of ADHD treatment.  


This treatment teaches you how to regulate your brain waves in an effort to enhance brain function and mental well-being. Studies show that inattention can improve after neurofeedback, and these marked improvements were comparable to the best combined effects of medication and therapy.
