Over the past decade, the ADHD Center at Mt. Sinai Hospital in New York has been developing, studying, and refining cognitive-behavioral therapy designed to foster the development of executive functioning skills (time management, organization, task initiation, planning, and prioritizing). Their research supports the effectiveness of cognitive behavioral therapy as a viable psychosocial intervention to address weak executive functioning. We are proud to offer DFW this research based approach!
These findings support the effectiveness of cognitive behavioral therapy as a viable psychosocial intervention to address weak executive functioning. This study investigated the effectiveness of their 12-week meta-cognitive therapy intervention designed to enhance executive functioning. Eighty-eight adults who met DSM-IV criteria for ADHD according to clinical and structured diagnostic interviews and standardized questionnaires were randomly assigned to receive cognitive behavioral therapy or supportive psychotherapy in a group modality. Results were assessed by an independent (blind) evaluator via structured interview before and after treatment as well as by self-report and behavioral ratings completed by significant others.
These findings are exciting because we are the first center in Dallas-Fort Worth to use the Mt. Sinai approach to address executive functioning weaknesses!
