Mindful Attention for ADHD
Improve your ability to focus and reduce impulsivity using techniques designed for ADHD
Mindfulness meditation can be highly effective in helping people live successfully with ADHD. While most people with ADHD might think meditation is impossible for someone with such a busy and disorganized mind, this is actually the reason it is so beneficial. MIndfulness provides a set of tools for facing the inherent difficulties of living with ADHD. Complete stillness or the ability to “empty your mind” is not required.
Prescription medication can be very helpful in reducing some of the symptoms of ADHD. However, managing ADHD requires a multi-dimensional approach. Mindfulness provides a set of tools for facing the inherent difficulties of living with ADHD that can supplement other treatment strategies.
This 8-week group program will combine information about coping with ADHD with techniques from mindfulness-based interventions.
