Program Description

Are you looking to make a difference in the lives of people with ADHD, including youth in grades K–12, military families, hospitalized children, and disaster survivors? Join two of the leading experts in the field, Richard P. Brown, MD, and Patricia Gerbarg, MD, to learn the most effective evidence-based approaches.

ADHD is not just a disorder of attention and hyperactivity; it also involves social interactions, bodily awareness, anxiety, reward systems, and numerous co-occurring learning disabilities.

Recent research is shedding light on the role of polymorphisms (genetic variants) that help explain some of the variability in medication responsiveness and nutritional sensitivities. Brain studies showing differences in activation of neural networks are being used to improve the effectiveness of neurofeedback. This informative, experiential, and didactic Breath, Body, Mind workshop includes a review of some of this important research.

You will learn:

  • Evidenced-based, non-drug treatments for ADHD, including herbs, nutrients, and mind-body practices
  • Scientific evidence that supports the use of specific breath practices in alleviating symptoms of stress, anxiety, depression, and PTSD
  • The effects of breath practices on emotion regulation and bonding
  • Breathing and movement techniques that are beneficial for children in classroom, after-school, clinical, and hospital settings
  • How to introduce neurofeedback and mild brain stimulation treatments.

Take home a toolkit of proven practices to create a compassionate environment and relieve behavioral, social, and emotional disorders for people with ADHD.

Why Attend?

  • Gain new professional skills for confidently supporting children and others with ADHD and attain better results.

  • Increase your understanding of cutting-edge research on the efficacy and options for non-drug treatments for those managing ADHD.

  • Expand your toolkit of evidence-based stress-relieving practices for yourself and those you teach and support.
