Episode Description

ADHD does not exist only in the brain. Like other mental health disorders, ADHD affects (and is affected by) the whole person. Stress levels, physical health, lifestyle, sense of self, relationships, and environment are important to consider when formulating and adjusting ADHD treatment. Many patients find it helpful to combine integrative or holistic strategies alongside conventional psychiatric treatments to cultivate physical and emotional wellbeing in ADHD.

In this presentation, you will learn about the benefits of integrative treatments, such as lifestyle and nutrition modification, supplements, acupuncture, or a consultation with a holistic clinician. We will also look at how the “neurodiversity perspective” — along with mindfulness, self-compassion, and positive psychology — can decrease the stigma associated with ADHD and comorbid disorders, and foster acceptance and resilience.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • The whole-person framework for mental health
  • Fundamental wellness strategies for ADHD
  • The value of mindful awareness, self-acceptance, and compassion in ADHD care
  • How diverse integrative medicine approaches can be combined with conventional ADHD care
  • How to use a gradual and collaborative approach when implementing a multi-component treatment
