Mindfulness-Based Therapy for Adults with ADHD – Part 1
In the 65-minute presentation by John Mitchell, Ph.D., you will learn the history of overall Behavior Therapy and the more specific development of Mindfulness-Based Therapy (MBT) for ADHD and other conditions. You will learn the evidence basis for the efficacy of MBT as a legitimate treatment choice in your toolkit for ADHD, derived from previous research. You will be exposed to the overall approach in introducing MBT to your ADHD patients, whether you choose to refer them to third-party programs or begin to deliver all or portions of this program yourself.
