Celebrating Progress: Moving Forward with ADHD


Congratulations on completing this journey! You've traversed through numerous blogs filled with valuable insights and skills aimed at alleviating the distress and impairment caused by ADHD. However, reaching the end of these blogs and the conclusion of regular therapy sessions doesn't mark the end of your treatment journey. Rather, it signals the beginning of a new phase where you become the captain of your ship, steering your treatment toward continued success.


 

Practice Makes Progress: Locking in Your Skills


It's essential to regularly practice the strategies and skills you've acquired so they become ingrained and automatic. Embrace this transition by integrating these practices into your daily or weekly routine, ensuring the sustainability and enhancement of the benefits you've achieved. Remember, consistency is key in maintaining and extending your progress.


Reflecting on Your Journey: Reviewing Symptom Checklist


Take a moment to reflect on your progress by revisiting the ASRS Symptom Checklist, a tool you've used throughout your sessions. Share your insights and scores with your therapist, as they provide valuable insights into your growth and areas for further focus.


Identifying Helpful Strategies: Examining What Worked


Consider which strategies have been most beneficial for you during your treatment. Utilize Worksheet 9: Treatment Strategies and Usefulness to rate the effectiveness of each strategy and reflect on why certain approaches resonated with you. This self-reflection will guide you in prioritizing the strategies to continue practicing in the upcoming weeks.


Preparing for Challenges: Maintaining Your Gains


Recognize that successful treatment doesn't guarantee a symptom-free future. Symptoms may fluctuate over time, requiring you to apply the skills learned during treatment during periods of increased difficulty. Anticipate these challenges and refer to the troubleshooting difficulties chart (Table 14.1) to refresh your memory on effective strategies.


Scheduling Self-Review: Taking Charge of Your Progress


Empower yourself by scheduling a self-review session one month from today using Worksheet 10: One-Month Review. This structured reflection will help you assess your progress and identify areas that need further attention. Remember to maintain consistency and keep track of your core calendar to stay organized.


Seeking Support When Needed: Troubleshooting Your Difficulties


If you encounter challenges, don't hesitate to reach out for support. Try to devise effective solutions or seek input from loved ones or your therapist. Remember, seeking help is a sign of strength, not weakness.


 

Embracing Continued Growth


As you embark on this next phase of your journey, embrace the opportunity for continued growth and progress. By implementing these strategies and maintaining a proactive approach to your well-being, you're setting yourself up for long-term success. We wish you the best in your ongoing journey towards self-improvement and fulfillment!
