Mindful Parenting, Resilient Children

The ADHD Clinic would like to announce

A 6-week Parent Workshop

with Dr. M. Lee Freedman

This 6-week course is an introduction to the principles and practices of mindful parenting with an emphasis on the unique challenges of raising a child or teen with attention regulation challenges. The course will explore ways for parents to manage the stress associated with raising a child with ADHD, to practice attention and emotion regulation skills in order to help their children learn to self-regulate, and to be present with themselves and their children in both joyful and difficult times.  Through interactive discussion and mindfulness practice exercises, parents in program will begin to experience and learn skills to manage parental stress, practices to respond wisely, calmly, and compassionately to parenting challenges.
