I've been asked to write an article for a therapists magazine

Hi All

I've been asked to write an article for a therapists magazine about working with Adult ADHD clients.

What would you like to tell a counsellor/psychotherapist about

1) Spotting ADHD - not the DSM criteria.... but the red flags that aren't in the DSM.... those things that should make the therapist sit up and start to think ADHD might be in the picture.

2) What is the most important thing you'd like a talk therapist to know when working with an ADDer?

3) What do you really NOT want from a talk therapist.... personal horror stories welcome!

4) What has made the biggest difference for you... even if it wasn't talk therapy related.

The focus of the article is to try to get therapists to think outside the DSM box.... so that they can spot the undiagnosed ADDer and also take account of ADHD in therapy.

Thanks

kilted

PS I'm doing the article as a favour at short notice
