An exciting area of research is showing that mindfulness practice is an effective intervention for the treatment of ADHD and executive functioning challenges. This 6-week mindfulness course, based on the work of Mark Bertin, MD, is designed to teach adults with ADHD and adult caregivers of children with ADHD (parents, teachers, etc.) practical skills to cultivate more calm, reduce stress, and thrive in their lives.
As a participant you will learn how to:
- Reduce the negative impacts of stress on you and loved ones
- Gain a sense of being grounded, calm, and less reactive when surrounded by everyday challenges
- Respond to people and tasks more effectively and flexibly
- Meet the difficulties that ADHD causes for you with kindness and compassion
Each participant will be supported in a warm and non-judgmental learning environment. The classes consist of experiential mindfulness practices, class discussions about ADHD specific topics, and an exploration of how mindfulness can help with ADHD care. This will also include exercises participants can implement at home to support what they are learning in each class. Whether you are an adult living with ADHD or a caregiver of someone with ADHD, you will learn valuable skills that will help you live a life of more ease, connection, and intention.
This class is appropriate for individuals with all levels of experience with mindfulness.
