The Elephant in the ADHD Room: Beating Boredom as a Secret to Management of ADHD
Author: Letitia Sweitzer
Boredom and boredom avoidance drive the behaviours of inattention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity – the diagnostic criteria of ADHD. This is the first ADHD resource to thoroughly explore the connection between the two. This book is full of innovative approaches that will help patients, students and clients beat boredom and engage with tasks and goals they want or need to achieve. These are presented with strategies specifically designed for children, age by age, and principles that can be applied to adult life. They can then be incorporated into schoolwork, jobs, relationships and everyday life. This practical resource will provide professionals who diagnose, treat, coach, and teach those with ADHD or those who suffer from frequent or pervasive boredom, with the tools to alleviate the discomfort of boredom in order to improve both concentration and mood.
