Over the years I have worked with numerous adults who were being treated for depression for many years prior to being diagnosed with ADHD. In addition, these individuals complained that the depression rarely or only temporarily lifted until the ADHD diagnosis was identified and treated. Many of these individuals spent years of their adult life being treated for depression, while the primary diagnosis was actually ADHD. Because of the pervasiveness of the co-existence of these 2 diagnoses, it is vital to understand the differences between the two and to also treat both the ADHD and the depression, when appropriate, in order to develop the most effective treatment plan and outcome. The following article addresses the question of how to determine if it’s ADHD, depression or both? And why it’s important to treat the primary diagnosis first, in order to achieve the best treatment outcome.
Depression is one of the most common disorders to occur with ADHD. In fact, it has been de...

According to researchers, anxious children are more likely to be submissive and therefore their worries tend to be overlooked. As such, parents should be attentive to their kids’ worries, create a list of their worries, observe their kids’ behavior in social situations; i.e. parties, pool, play grounds, and understand their kids’ anxiety rather than ignoring it and/or assuming their worries will go away as they grow older.
If you see that your child is avoiding activities and performances, is constantly concerned about negative thoughts such as losing a parent or a loved one, or is preoccupied with checking, tapping, and washing, it is time for your child to deal with his/her anxiety in a healthier way...

The “If you loved me you would…” assertion is often a defense to avoid the exposure of other more vulnerable needs and concerns. It can feel safer to criticize or fault your partner than it does to acknowledge certain needs or desires which may or may not be fulfilled or even respected by them. Expressing in very specific, rather global terms the nature of those desires helps to minimize the likelihood of your partner feeling attacked and consequently enhances the likelihood that they will be more open to listening non-defensively and will be more responsive to your concerns. It may require focused effort to see beyond your hurt or frustration to identify your unmet needs and desires, but naming them, first to yourself and then expressing them to your partner in a respectful, non-judgmental way, will create a very different outcome than the scenario that Karen and Peter experienced.
Some examples of unfulfilled needs and desires include: wanting more recognition or ac...
According to the therapists specialized in working with children, 30-40 percent of children with ADHD experience an anxiety disorder as well, such as obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder, social anxiety, phobias, and generalized anxiety disorder. The combination of ADHD and anxiety symptoms can only lead to a more stressful life for kids... To read more, please visit http://blog.montrealarttherapy.com/?p=132
Art therapists working with kids with ADHD believe that structure, boundaries, and compliments on achievements are of importance in the treatment of these kids. Due to lack of the aforementioned pieces in their lives, most of the time kids with ADHD experience an excessive amount of negative feedback at school and at home, from teachers, parents, friends, and siblings, which only leads to develop a negative self-image and low self-esteem...

Are you a person who believes that you always do what you intend to do? Most people would probably answer yes. However, despite what you may believe, research shows that the majority of people, do not. In fact, most individuals have far less control then they believe they do. As frustrating as this may be, there are ways of establishing good habits and overcoming those existing ones that seem to get in our way. But first let’s look at how habits are formed, as well as the obstacles we face in overcoming the existing ones that prevent us from achieving our goals.
It has often been said that it takes 3 weeks of repeating a behavior for it to become a habit. However, when looking into this further, I discovered that this is actually not true. In most cases, it takes much longer. (WEW! That sure let’s me off the hook for all those times I thought I would have it down in a month’s time, only to discover that I had not.) In fact, it was discovered in a recent study that fo...
A recent study has revealed that the number of children diagnosed with ADHD in France (less than 5% of school-ages children) is remarkably lower than the number of children diagnosed with this disorder in the North America (up to 12% of school-aged children). While North American child psychiatrists perceive ADHD a medical condition that can only be controlled by pharmaceutical drugs, French child psychiatrists perceive ADHD as a medical condition, which has underlying psychosocial causes...

It seems the more I listen to people in and out of my therapy practice, the more I realize that, for many of us, achieving a healthy love relationship is often fraught with much difficulty. Obviously, there are multitudes of reasons why people may have difficulty forming healthy long term relationships, and I should certainly know, having had my share of "roller-coaster rides", but having ADHD often adds to the difficulty in very distinct ways. This article explores some of those difficulties as they apply to romance, love and ADHD.
Recently I had a conversation with a client who has a long history of unsuccessful romantic relationships. She's a beautiful young woman who has had a variety of passionate relationships which, for some reason never "work out". Over our past few sessions we have explored this pattern, only to discover that the men she most cared for were exciting, handsome, and dreamy, but somehow not very supportive or emotionally available. On the other hand, she had a v...
Determining at what point one should seek treatment for their child or adolescent can be difficult. When a significant life event, such as the divorce of one’s parents, terminal diagnosis of a parent, significant trauma, or other serious event occurs, it is usually more evident that in many cases treatment may be warranted. In the above-mentioned situations, treatment can help your child cope with the change or impending change to their life. It can also have a good protective function in reducing the likelihood of your child or adolescent developing more significant problems later on.
However, when your child seems to be struggling with issues such as bullying, low self-esteem, significant difficulty managing anger, and other more common issues, the decision at which point to seek treatment becomes somewhat less clear.
In general, if you have significant concerns about your child’s or adolescent’s functioning, behavior, or mood, it is best to seek a consultation wi...
