ADHD in Teens: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
Another kind of psychotherapy used to treat ADHD is cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). This form of therapy seeks to help those with this condition identify and decrease the irrational thoughts and behaviors that reinforce maladaptive behaviors and can be administered either individually or in group therapy. CBT that seeks to help the ADHD sufferer decrease the tendency to pay excessive attention to potential threats has also been found to be helpful, particularly for teens that have anxiety or depression in addition to ADHD.
