If you have adult attention de?cit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), accomplishing everyday tasks like paying bills, getting to a meeting on time, or simply buying groceries can be extremely difficult. At the end of the day, you may feel frustrated and unfocused, and life may seem unmanageable. So, how can you move past the constant forgetfulness, recurring mistakes, disorganization, distractibility, and restlessness that keep you from being your very best?
Transforming ADHD offers a breakthrough, scientifically-grounded approach to attention and action regulation skills and strategies. Looking at ADHD through the latest research and the broad perspective of interpersonal neurobiology (IPNB)--a model that views one's mind, brain, body, and relationships as intimately connected--you'll discover how to work with your brain instead of against it, and transform the way you live your life.
Using the practical exercises, tools, and techniques presented, you'll learn how to effectively direct your attention and motivate yourself to action so you can move toward the life you want.
“This book is a gem. Crosby and Lippert take this complex and sometimes confusing experience of living with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and make it imminently understandable. And then they provide a plethora of interesting and doable ideas, as well as practical strategies for you to live the life you want. NOW.”

“Transforming ADHD strikes that right balance of information that comes both from the ‘head and the heart.’ Crosby and Lippert provide practical strategies to help adults function better with ADHD that not only are solidly based in the research literature, but also come from a wealth of both clinical and personal experience. ADHD affects adults in so many different ways. The authors understand the impact ADHD has on individuals’ lives, and the book provides tips that adults can apply in their work and family life along with lots of supportive advice. They really get what it’s like to live with ADHD.”
—Bradley Steinfeld, PhD, assistant director at Group Health Cooperative Behavioral Health Services
“Transforming ADHD is a clearly written and easy-to-use guide for overcoming ADHD and literally rewiring your attention! If this sounds complicated, it’s not—because authors Crosby and Lippert weave together engaging, real-life stories, research, brain science, and relationship patterns to re-envision ADHD. Best of all, they offer a set of practical, daily skills and mindful awareness tools for overcoming procrastination and increasing your effectiveness. Whether you’re an adult diagnosed with ADHD, or a mental health clinician working in the ADHD field, Transforming ADHD is an essential key to unlocking the ADHD puzzle. A must-have book!”
—Donald Altman, MA, LPC, author of the best-selling The Mindfulness Toolbox, Clearing Emotional Clutter, and One-Minute Mindfulness
“As someone who has had the privilege of having a front row seat to witness Greg Crosby lead workshops for attorneys with ADHD, I anticipated that this book that he partnered with Tonya Lippert to produce would be a solid, research-based resource. It has exceeded my positive expectations. It is written in a clear and efficient style. Their guiding metaphor of flashing lights and guiding lights provided a great focus or lens for the research-based strategies and tools they offer. I appreciated how they were able to relate and reinforce material and tools which they introduced at the start of the book with the material and tools that they followed with. I believe that the population which I work with, attorneys, will find this book to be a helpful and easy-to-digest resource.”
—Mike Long, attorney counselor, Oregon Attorney Assistance Program
