Dates: August 7, 2019
Do you ever wonder what’s really going on in the minds of kids with ADHD? Dr. Sharon Saline, veteran psychologist and author of “What your ADHD child wishes you knew: Working together to empower kids for success in school and life,” offers rare insights into how kids honestly think and feel about having ADHD and what best helps them. She assists professionals and parents to think differently about the challenges these children and teens face and explores new ways of listening to and working with them for improved cooperation and success. Based on her unique, strength-based approach–’the 5C’s of ADHD parenting,’ Dr. Saline shares a variety of helpful and practical solutions to teach kids essential daily living skills that reduce stress and increase positivity. Her collaborative approach integrates mindfulness, cognitive therapy and positive psychology while teaching effective skills to reduce the stress in everyone’s lives. Armed with these techniques for more cooperation and less arguing, you can successfully nurture resilience and independence in your clients.
