CBT programs, like the one we are opening soon at IPMG, has been developed specifically for adults with ADHD. Some of these programs including ours, has the goal to help adults overcome their difficulties in everyday executive functions or simply put – “tasks.” Skills in the ADHD CBT Program help individuals effectively manage their time, stay organized and plan their short term and the long term tasks. The program (as with other programs available) will also focus on emotional self-regulation, impulse control and stress management which is also helpful for many struggling with ADHD as an adult.
Studies have shown that adults with ADHD are more likely than adults in the general population to suffer from co-existing anxiety and depressive disorders. A large national study found 51% of adults with ADHD suffered from co-morbid anxiety and 32% suffered from co-morbid depression. CBT for these disorders may be quite helpful to many adults with ADHD, even though they are not designed specifically to address the symptoms and impairment associated with ADHD. Inland Psychiatric Medical Group has Individual and Group Therapy for Anxiety symptoms AND Depressive symptoms.
Our Online Virtual Classroom like Setting will help address executive dysfunction by improving adaptive cognition. This means helping individuals on how to go about planning, organizing, etc. and also advise on effective behavioral skills.
- An example of an adaptive cognition is helping an individual to use the following skill on their own daily if needed: break down complex or unpleasant tasks into manageable parts.
- Examples of behavioral skills are using a planner regularly and implementing a filing system.
Positive thoughts and positive behaviors reinforce each other; our brain and emotions are heavily tied to each other whether we like it or not. Our CBT Program utilizes this deep connection to help improve our clients lives in work, at home, and with relationships. For example, the skills helps individuals become more effective in managing time, which in turn helps them have more positive beliefs and cognitions about their self, and these in turn help to generate and maintain more adaptive behaviors.
