The etiology of ADHD lies in the brain, yet the quality of the parenting and family environment can scaffold the child’s development to maximize their functioning, while minimizing impairment and the development of comorbid problems. Given that parents and children exert reciprocal, transactional influences on one another, parent and child mental health must both be targeted in parenting interventions for ADHD. In this introduction, the authors present behavioral and cognitive-behavioral theoretical models that lay the foundation for the skills presented in this therapist guide. In addition, general guidelines for delivering this program in both individual and group formats are presented.
