Abstract (summary)

Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) affects up to 9% of all school-age children (Barkley, 2007). Although symptoms vary in presentation and severity, they permeate every system in which the child or adolescent is involved, including school, community, social, and family. A great deal of research has focused on various aspects of ADHD, including assessment and diagnosis, comorbidity, and individualized treatments such as behavior modification, medication, and psychotherapy. One relatively unexplored aspect of treatment of ADHD includes the family system, which directly affects and is directly affected by symptoms of ADHD. After a review of existing research and practices in these spheres, an integrated comprehensive treatment approach will be discussed which includes documented treatments to be implemented within systemic family therapy.
