About the Edition

Although the results of cognitive-behaviour therapy (CBT) with children under 13 years of age, diagnosed with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), have been mixed, CBT with an older ADHD population have been promising. The purpose of this pilot study was to investigate the effectiveness and utility of a 10-week individual CBT treatment program with an adolescent ADHD population aged 14 to 18. It was hypothesized that those who took part in CBT would show significant improvements in self-directedness (SD). It was also expected that those in therapy would show greater improvements in SD than a comparison group. The results revealed that of the six participants who completed CBT, five consistently showed an increase in SD as measured by the Temperament and Character Inventory (TCI). In contrast, the comparison group showed significant decreases in SD. The findings in this pilot study warrant a larger study in the future.
