A Workshop for Adults with ADHD and Parents of children with ADHD

Join our workshop to gain a deeper understanding of ADHD and learn practical tools for ADHD management.

In this dynamic and interactive workshop, Dr. Sharon Saline, clinical psychologist, author and consultant, helps you navigate the confusing mix of biology, behavior and emotion that characterize ADHD in children, teens and adults. Offering rare insights into how kids and adults honestly think and feel about living with complex ADHD.

Dr. Saline shares a variety of helpful and practical solutions based on her unique, strength-based approach–the 5 Cs of ADHD™. She will show you how and why executive functioning skills are critical to work and school performance, social relationships, emotional regulation and self-esteem. Her collaborative method integrates mindfulness, cognitive therapy and positive psychology while teaching effective tools to foster growth mindsets.

After reviewing current research on ADHD, she will show you how to improve motivation, persistence and focus while decreasing anxiety and criticism. Innovative exercises designed to understand living with neurodivergent brains and build a toolbox of effective strategies to overcome typical ADHD frustrations related to household routines, disorganization and family conflict are threaded throughout the workshop.
