Janette Patterson – Managing Emotional Dysregulation and Impulsivity in Middle Schoolers with ADHD

Janette is most known for her solution-focused therapy approach.

She is a member of the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapists as well as CHADD or Children and Adults with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

Something that stood out to me about Janette was her use of mindfulness training in her approach to help both parents and kids.

Lesson completed

This presentation will teach parents and caregivers of individuals with ADHD about the underlying dynamics of emotional dysregulation and impulsivity and how it manifests in maladaptive or dysfunctional behaviors.

We will address stuck patterns in dealing with the resulting problematic situations and offer concrete strategies to address these behaviors in the individual.

We will also practice communication and interaction skills to promote healing and improved responses to triggers and situations.

In order to implement these coping methods, we will learn to be mindful and observant of our own thoughts and feelings so that we can respond appropriately.

This session will discuss mindfulness as a personal practice, as well as how to help the individual with ADHD become more mindful.
