Individuals with AD/HD often experience social difficulties, social rejection, and interpersonal relationship problems as a result of their inattention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity. Such negative interpersonal outcomes cause emotional pain and suffering. They also appear to contribute to the development of mood and anxiety disorder. To become socially interactive, an individual must be attentive, responsible and have some control over his/her impulsive behaviours. As therapist we help the client to learn social skills to adjust in his/her environment and eliminate socially inappropriate behaviours. With social rejection, the individual experiences emotional pain and has a low self-esteem throughout the life span. With proper assessment, treatment and education, individuals with AD/HD can learn social skills and develop a network of positive interaction in today’s society.
