Parenting | Psychology | Well Being | Youth

Far more than a disorder of attention, ADHD is a heritable developmental disorder that affects executive function, a set of cognitive abilities necessary for managing our lives. ADHD impacts daily stress, strains relationships, and hinders specific academic skills such as narrative writing. Mindfulness improves ADHD care by reducing stress, improving cognitive flexibility, supporting habit change, and more. A growing body of research even links mindfulness to direct improvement in attention and executive function. This workshop integrates mindfulness into all the rest of evidence-based ADHD care, emphasizing practical tools for getting started.
