Free Webinar Replay: Your Teen Is Not Lazy! How to Best Motivate an Adolescent with ADHD
In this hour-long webinar-on-demand, learn how to build your teen’s self-reliance with Adam Price, Ph.D.
ADHD kills motivation. Most research conducted on motivating a child with ADHD centers on the brain, and rightfully so. However, other important factors also impact a person’s drive and determination — ones that parents can influence. Here, learn how to become your child’s biggest ally as he or she develops greater independence and discovers the keys to self-motivation. Also learn to strengthen the most important resource you have in the quest for self-reliance: the parent-child relationship.
In this webinar, you will learn about:
- the psychological link between ADHD and motivation
- the three Cs of motivation: competence, control, connection
- how parents’ best intentions may backfire
- how to avoid the trap of over-parenting a child or teen with ADHD
- how to enhance your child’s autonomy by setting structure without control
Webinar replays include:
- Slides accompanying the webinar
- Related resources from ADDitude
- Free newsletter updates about ADHD
*Please note that access to this webinar replay will remain free until May 14, 2018. After that, you will find it in the ADDitude Store in our library of expert on-demand webinars!
