ADHS bei Erwachsenen - Betroffene berichten aus ihrem Leben by Doris Ryffel-Rawak

By Doris Ryffel-Rawak

Patienten mit einer Aufmerksamkeitsdefizitstörung (ADHS) leiden im Erwachsenenalter unter vielfältigen Problemen: Im Vordergrund stehen Aufmerksamkeits- und Konzentrationsstörungen, die wiederum zu ausgeprägten Schwierigkeiten im Berufsalltag führen. Häufige Stimmungsschwankungen, Antriebsstörungen und das Gefühl, ein Leben wie im Nebel zu führen, haben zusätzliche unfavourable Auswirkungen im familiären und sozialen Umfeld. Schließlich finden sich unter ADHS-Betroffenen solche mit ausgeprägten impulsiven Verhaltensweisen und starker Hyperaktivität. Die Autorin hat sich auf die Diagnostik und Therapie von erwachsenen ADHS-Patienten spezialisiert. Viele ihrer Patienten hatten zahlreiche Therapieversuche hinter sich, waren meist auf Unverständnis gestoßen, und in Unkenntnis des Krankheitsbildes wurden erfolgversprechende Therapien unterlassen.
