About the Program: Parents of children and teens diagnosed with ADHD, who often experience co-occurring anxiety and depressive symptoms, can feel overwhelmed by emotional and behavioral challenges. This may contribute to over-functioning, power struggles, or other ineffective but understandable attempts to gain control. Develop a brain-based understanding of emotion and behavior regulation, which fosters empathy, and learn more effective parenting strategies that can enhance lagging executive skills. Parenting practices that focus on supporting and guiding allow children/teens to draw on their strengths and use strategies to enhance coping, providing a sense of ownership that is crucial for the development of a healthy sense of self.
