Mindfulness for ADHD/ADD Training Course

6 Thursdays, Jan 16-Feb 20, 2014
7-9 pm

For Adults with ADHD, their Spouses and Parents of Children with ADHD

Conducted by Dr. Mark Bertin, Developmental Pediatrician and Author of The Family ADHD Solution: A Scientific Approach to Maximizing Your Child’s Attention and Minimizing Parental Stress

ADHD affects quality of life in a myriad of ways: increased stress levels, struggles at work and school, and challenges in personal relationships. Recent research shows that mindfulness, meditation and related stress-reduction techniques may improve executive function and attention, reduce stress, promote cognitive flexibility in problem solving, foster emotional well-being, and mitigate ADHD effects through enhanced self-awareness and self-regulation.

This training is now available in Manhattan in a 6-week interactive program facilitated by one of the top professionals in this field.

Each session includes mindfulness exercises taught in a manner suitable for those with – or without – attentional issues.   Both experienced meditators and those new to the practice will benefit. The classes will also include education about ADHD, from the neuroscience to its impact on day-to-day life.

Sessions will include adapted mindfulness exercises as well as an overview of ADHD encompassing causes, treatment options and a review of current research.
