This chapter provides the therapist with information needed to orient clients to the cognitive model of ADHD. The therapist teaches clients with ADHD to recognize and identify their automatic thoughts and to understand the relationship among thoughts, behaviors, and feelings. The therapist educates the client about common thinking errors. Using a thought record, clients are taught to self-monitor their thoughts. A case vignette is provided to illustrate the technique of keeping a thought record.
