The teenage years are tricky for parent-child relationships. As a parent or caregiver you want to maintain a strong bond and teach good decision-making skills. You may find that previous parenting strategies are not as effective for teens. As with any relationship, communication is key. Learn how to make adjustments to your communication so that you not only are getting through to your teenagers, but helping them thrive and be prepared for independence after leaving your nest.
In this webinar you will specifically learn to:
Describe communication strategies effective for talking with teenagers
Give examples of how to best support and empower teens with ADHD
Identify 2 ways to obtain buy-in and motivate teens when they’re seemingly unmotivated
A person's level of motivation is tied to his emotions where ADHD is concerned. Dr. Thomas E. Brown discusses the interrelationship between emotions and motivation:
• Emotional regulation and a person's sense of motivation
• Why getting started on a project can be difficult for someone affected by ADHD
• How to take control of one's emotions and motivation
Dr. Brown is a clinical psychologist who received his PhD from Yale University and maintains a private practice in Hamden, Connecticut specializing in assessment and treatment of high-IQ children, adolescents and adults with ADD and related problems. He is an Assistant Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at the Yale University School of Medicine and is Associate Director of the Yale Clinic for Attention and Related Disorders. He has served on the Professional Advisory Board for national CHADD and for the National Attention Deficit Disorder Association.
