Description

  • Efficacy and benefits of non-drug treatments
  • Techniques that change the brain to improve ADHD symptoms
  • Options for treating the whole child
  • A deeper understanding of non-drug treatment for childhood ADHD

Although medication has been the traditional first line of treatment for childhood ADHD, there are many kids and teens for whom medication is not the best option. You will learn when to consider and how to incorporate non-drug options into your treatment plan. The more you understand about the non-drug treatments for ADHD the more comprehensive, individualized and effective your treatment will be.

Learn about cutting edge non-drug treatments for ADHD as well as the efficacy and neurobiology of each treatment. Finally understand what neurofeedback is, how it works, and why the American Academy of Pediatrics added biofeedback/neurofeedback to its list of best treatment modalities for ADHD. You will learn and practice brain-based mindfulness skills that help kids and teens slow down, calm down, concentrate, and feel better about themselves. Master skills for helping kids, teens, and their parents make ADHD-specific changes in their diet, sleep, behavior, organization, exercise, and environment that support their success. Options for addressing low self-esteem, depression, and anxiety that so often accompany ADHD will also be discussed.

Debra Burdick, LCSWR, BCN, a psychotherapist, neurotherapist, author and ADHD and mindfulness expert will show you how to put all the pieces together and give you new skills that will improve your treatment outcomes for working with clients with ADHD. The recording will include case examples, experiential learning, tools for tracking treatment progress and a wealth of worksheets and resource materials to use with your clients.

She recently retired from her private practice, and previously worked at the Child Guidance Clinic, Family Services, Child and Family Agency, and Lawrence and Memorial Hospital. 

Debra incorporates mindfulness skills in all areas of her practice. She initially became interested in mindfulness to deal with a chronic illness (now thankfully healed). She found it so helpful in her own life that she started teaching her clients the skills she was using. She went on to develop clinical material on mindfulness skills and created a four-step process for working with clients using mindfulness that she perfected in her private practice and in an intensive outpatient program. Her clients have shown her that mindfulness skills improve the rate and quality of treatment outcomes.
