Does DBT Based Group Treatment Help Adults With ADHD? (RCT Study)

About the Course

Studies on structured skills training groups have indicated beneficial, although still inconclusive, effects on core symptoms of ADHD in adults. This trial examined effects of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy-based group treatment (DBT-bGT) on the broader and clinically relevant executive functioning and emotional regulation in adults with ADHD.

This course is based on the reading-based online article, Dialectical behavioral therapy-based group treatment versus treatment as usual for adults with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder: a multicenter randomized controlled trial, created by Anne Halmøy, M.D., Ph.D. et al. in 2022.
