427 Mindfulness & Adult AD/HD

Lidia ZylowskaLidia Zylowska • Saturday Morning
Often equated with hyperactive children, AD/HD is, in fact, a multifaceted disorder that frequently continues into adulthood. Medications, while helpful for some, rarely are a complete solution for adults with AD/HD, and complementary approaches are usually necessary. In this workshop, you’ll learn how mindfulness techniques can help adult AD/HD clients improve attention, be aware of their AD/HD patterns, and learn to redirect themselves. We’ll explore specific tracking, breathing, self-awareness, and compassion practices clients can incorporate into their personal routines. We’ll highlight practical tools like color-calendars, to-do lists, and time-management systems that further foster awareness and help these clients organize the complexities and challenges of daily life. You’ll walk away with a checklist of best practices for working with adults with AD/HD, both in a clinical setting and a coaching context.

Lidia Zylowska, M.D., a psychiatrist specializing in mindfulness-based therapy and adult AD/HD, is a cofounder of the UCLA Mindful Awareness Research Center (MARC). She’s the author of The Mindfulness Prescription for Adult ADHD.
