Mindfulness for Adult ADHD (MAPs)

about_therapy
What is Mindfulness? 

Mindfulness is a psychological approach that involves learning new ways to relate to and experience difficult thoughts, feelings, impulses, sensations, and other internal experiences. Typically, the term mindfulness refers to both formal mindfulness meditation (i.e. designated periods of sitting and focusing on breathing as one example) as well as informal mindfulness practice, otherwise known as mindfulness in daily life (i.e. using mindfulness skills and practices in 'in the moment', for example, when triggered by difficult emotions or impulses. ).

 

The Mindful Awareness Practices (MAPs) mindfulness for adult ADHD program can provide you with the knowledge, skills, and strategies you need to manage ADHD. Learn essential information about the ADHD brain and develop evidence-based skills, practices, and accessible tools to help you cope with the challenges and experiences of life with ADHD. Start moving towards what matters most to you with greater calm and stability, clarity and focus, and a new approach to managing your ADHD.

Program Format

The MAPs program is being offered through live online sessions on Zoom.

For the Winter 2024 MAPS sessions, we will be running two cohorts. The first cohort will start on February 23rd, and will run for 12-weeks with an hour-long session each week on Fridays at 12pm, with a last session date of May 10th. The second cohort will start on March 19th, and will run for 8-weeks with an hour and a half long session each week on Tuesdays at 7pm, with a last session date of May 7th. Over the course of each week you will learn mindfulness-based skills and strategies to support you with the typical challenges that come along with ADHD.

 

Each session will involve interactive discussion topics, informational sessions on the ADHD brain and mindfulness, instruction and practice in mindfulness meditation, and skills designed specifically for adult ADHD. Take-home assignments and practices will also be provided to help you maximize the benefits you can get from this program (don't worry - homework is ADHD-friendly, and numerous ADHD task completion strategies will be woven into the program to help you improve your ability to remember and do what you intend to!).

 

Weekly one-on-one check-ins to help with accountability, session support, and working with home practice-related ADHD challenges during the program is available at no additional cost!
