Ramsay, J. Russell; Rostain, Anthony L.
Journal of College Student Psychotherapy, v21 n1 p3-20 Aug 2006
Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a developmental syndrome that persists into adulthood for the majority of children with ADHD. Other individuals may not experience the full negative effects of undiagnosed ADHD until they face the demands of adult life. College counseling centers in particular are seeing a rise in the number of students seeking therapeutic services for issues related to ADHD. The purpose of this paper is to provide background information about the prevalence of ADHD on college campuses, its impact on affected students, and to introduce a cognitive behavior therapy approach for college students with ADHD.
