In this session, a joint meeting is held with the adolescent client and their parent or parents. The chapter includes educational information for the parents about attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and an overview for the parents of the treatment. The primary goal of the session is to ensure that all involved parties are “on the same page.” Parent and adolescent goals are set and the use of a motivational/reward system is discussed. The chapter concludes with a discussion of the role that parents will play in the adolescent’s treatment.
