Get focused, the mindful way!
As if being a teen wasn't tough enough, attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) can make everyday life even more difficult--from struggling in school to relationship troubles with family and friends. When you just can't focus, life can get lost in the balance. And to make matters worse, you might also feel stressed or have trouble sleeping and eating well. So, how can you gain focus and start feeling better right away?
In Mindfulness for Teens with ADHD, a clinical social worker offers fast, easy mindfulness skills to help you successfully navigate all the areas of life, including making good choices, completing tasks, increasing academic success, excelling at sports, driving safely, getting enough sleep, managing stress, and more. By paying attention to the moment, you'll find yourself less distracted and better able to focus on what's going on right now--whether it's an algebra test, a job interview, or an important conversation with a friend.
The activities in this workbook will also help you build self-awareness and practice self-reflection--key skills to succeeding in life! These skills will help you start feeling more focused, less stressed, and gain confidence in your ability to reach your goals. What are you waiting for?
"Mindfulness for Teens with ADHD nails it! Any teen--indeed, any person--who has ADHD can gain enormously by using this practical, reader-friendly, immensely valuable workbook.åÊ The author knows her stuff, having worked in the real world of teens and attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) for years.

"Mindfulness at its core is about building attention, increasing self-awareness, and creating new choices in responding. This makes a mindfulness-based approach a perfect fit for those who have unique brain functioning and learning styles such as in ADHD. Debra Burdick's invaluable book provides teens, and those that work with them, with an excellent blueprint for applying curiosity and kindness to one's ADHD characteristics, weaknesses, and strengths. The book goes to the heart of typical teen struggles such as schoolwork or making friends, and through structured questions and practices guides the teen reader to simultaneously become more self-accepting and more resourceful in dealing with daily challenges."--Lidia Zylowska, MD, associate professor in the department of psychiatry at University of Minnesota, founding member at UCLA Mindful Awareness Research Center, and author of The Mindfulness Prescription for Adult ADHD
