Thriving with Adult ADHD

Thriving with Adult ADHD

by Phil Boissiere MFT


Adults with ADHD often have trouble with day-to-day functioning, from completing projects, starting tasks, and getting organized, to following instructions, keeping appointments, and controlling impulses. But ADHD is not all drawbacks and handicaps.

Phil Boissiere is a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, and a specialist in adult ADHD. Drawing on both his clinical training and his work as an executive coach in Silicon Valley, Boissiere argues that people with ADHD tend to be well-suited to solving problems in creative ways through lateral thinking.

In this book, the author breaks down the challenges of ADHD into clusters of core skills. Thriving with Adult ADHD contains detailed exercises to help us expose troublesome patterns of thinking and behavior, establish better habits, and cope with ADHD over the long term.

Advanced executive functioning skills are much more than learning how to make a to-do list ... The skills everyone needs in order to excel in work and life must allow us to navigate all aspects of any situation, no matter how complex.
