Meeting for Parents and for Adults with ADHD

 

Tuesday, September 8, 2015

7 pm

Kesher Israel Congregation

1000 Pottstown Pike, West Chester, PA

 

Topic:  Building a life worth living

DBT Strategies (Dialectical Behavior Therapy) for emotional dysregulation in ADHD and other conditions

 

Speaker:  Janette Patterson, MSW, LCMFT

 

Are you in a state of constant anxiety and stress? Does your child have one too many melt downs? Would you like to feel more in control of your emotions and less reactive to stressful life events?             

     

DBT offers strategies and behavioral skills training to address emotional dysregulation, reactivity and behavior challenges. Since some individuals with ADHD struggle with intense emotional reactions and disruptive behavioral patterns, we can explore these DBT strategies to help us navigate personal and interpersonal situations. 


This presentation offers an explanation of DBT, an overview of strategies  and examples of how we can use them effectively for ourselves as well as with persons with ADHD. This presentation is appropriate for parents of children with ADHD, as well as adults with ADHD. 

 


Janette Patterson, MSW, LCMFT, is a certified DBT therapist and marriage and family therapist who helps individuals and families affected by ADHD.

If you have a question about AD/HD that needs a response

Our chapter is managed by a group of dedicated volunteers and are unable to respond to immediate requests for assistance.  If you are seeking information for a time-sensitive event, like an IEP meeting, please contact CHADD's National Resource Center on AD/HD at 800-233-4050, press 2 (9-5:00 weekdays).  You can also go to www.help4adhd.org for additional AD/HD information.  You can download our "What We Know" sheets and find answers to "frequently asked questions".

CHADD does not endorse or represent products, services, publication, medications or treatments. Meetings are free and open to the public, although membership with CHADD is strongly encouraged, since your local group will receive a portion of your dues to continue supporting your community.
