MEDIA REVIEWS
This is an informative, well-written book that provides a systematic guide for families who need to manage the diverse aspects of attention deficits. It draws on Dr. Jacobs's broad experiences as a child psychologist, integrating standard and innovative behavioral approaches with psychoanalytic insights and basic principles of family therapy. Jacobs offers exercises to expand parents' awareness of key factors and to promote their competence in dealing with their child's unique challenges. He offers astute advice on how to build the skills for managing ADHD and methods for identifying goals and progress. This is a welcome resource for treating and mastering ADHD. -- William Robiner Ph.D, A.B.P.P., University of Minnesota Medical School
Dr. Jacobs's book is a superb reference for clinicians. It is useful, insightful, and a valuable addition to the field. Health and mental health professionals will find this book enlightening and rewarding. Dr. Jacobs gives practical and concise suggestions that therapists can use to support parents of children with learning disabilities and help them meet with success. -- Teresa Allissa Citro, executive director, Learning Disabilities Association of Massachusetts
Drawing from his many years of experience in the trenches with kids with ADHD and their families, Dr. Jacobs offers welcome relief for beleaguered parents. His thoughtful, wise, and comforting voice guides the reader through the potentially exhausting maze of rearing the child with ADHD. Filled with extraordinary helpful hints, solid advice, and good humor, this book is a first-rate primer for parents and professionals. Although geared to the child with ADHD, many of Jacobs's ideas are highly relevant to raising any child in today's world. Professionals will find this book the perfect accompaniment to their own work with ADHD families, and parents will appreciate it as a handy, practical antidote to the worry and confusion of raising a child with ADHD. -- Pamela L. Enders, Ph.D., Harvard Medical School
