Sen Talk CIC: Parents, Children and ADHD –Getting Families Back on Track

February 22 @ 8:30 am - 9:30 am EST


ADHD is a complex neurobiological disorder that affects both children and their families.  Recent research has shown that parents of children with ADHD experience increased rates of anxiety, depression, stress, and marital issues.  Stress alone can strain relationships and make it harder to parent consistently and to problem solve flexibly.  When children have ADHD, it often affects their relationship with their parents and their parents’ relationship with each other.

Broad-based ADHD care integrates behavioral, education, and medical supports that help both children and families move beyond these challenges. Dr. Bertin’s talk will include an overview of ADHD care, nonmedical as well as medical.  It will also offer an introduction to mindfulness-based stress reduction, a research-based and accessible approach to help parents reduce stress and promote their family’s well-being.

Learning Objectives
  • Common ways ADHD and executive function deficits impact day-to-day life for children and their parents, along with techniques to help manage these challenges
  • The effects of ADHD on parents and families, from a research as well as a clinical perspective
  • Both medical and non-medical evidenced-based interventions can support families in managing ADHD, and that help minimize ADHD symptoms and promote well-being in families
  • Current scientific research demonstrating the positive effects of mindfulness training on attention and self-regulation, cognitive flexibility, stress reduction, parenting, relationships, and in young children, along with an introduction to mindfulness tools for daily living.
