Integrative Psychotherapy for Children and Adolescents with ADHD combines aspects of cognitive development theory with principles of psychodynamic psychotherapy. Dr. Sebastiano Santostefano presents specific procedures for what he calls cognitive control therapy to help children and adolescents whose learning dysfunctions are a source of school failure and serious adjustment problems. He offers a possible alternative to psychopharmacological treatment for those suffering from an underlying distractibility and low frustration tolerance. Santostefano suggests that many of these patients lack the cognitive structures necessary to change within verbally oriented psychotherapy.
