This chapter describes the first optional parent coaching session. The primary goal of this session is to assess parent motivation for and hopefulness about cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) in helping their adolescent with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). The therapist can also discuss services that the adolescent is currently receiving at school, help the parents decide if other services are needed, and talk about how to advocate for these services. Other topics discussed in this chapter are how the contingency management system is working, how to address any issues with this system that may have come up, parenting style, and limit-setting with adolescents.
