ADHD Skill Training
Comprehensive research-based ADHD Skills Training for Adults
Perhaps you have been wondering about managing your emotions and impulsivity and how you can effectively deal with these symptoms of ADHD. More and more research has demonstrated the essential role of Mindfulness to help clients with ADHD “Anchor their Attention.”
I have been struggling with my mental health for years. I have tried many different treatments but nothing has helped me. I heard about DBT mindfulness training and decided to try it out. I am so glad that I did because it has helped me immensely. I feel like my life is finally getting better.Gloria
Introduction to Mindfulness Awareness Practices
Mindfulness Awareness Practices (MAPs) for ADHD is an eight-week class. This program provides an overview of the comprehensive causes and treatments for ADHD as well as a review of the neuroscience behind it all, including mindfulness-based interventions. The class also educates about the effects ADHD has on people and their executive function skills such as daily life management. Throughout every one of these classes, participants are also given guided mindful exercises in order to help them with concentration as that can be difficult for those with ADHD or anyone new to meditation!
Mindfulness sounds simple, but most people go through life with a tunnel vision-like experience. We generally tune out to our actual experiences and get distracted by thoughts of those occurrences. Most of us are so conditioned to engage with our thoughts rather than the present moment that we can easily lose sight of what is happening right in front of us.

The course includes a Mindfulness reflection activity during each session. Participants combine practice, learning, and application in each session.
