ADHD Behavioral Parent Education Group

Children with ADHD often present challenging and disruptive behavior at home. The Parent Education therapy group is one of three components for the treatment of ADHD currently offered by the MIND Institute ADHD Program.  (The other components are medication therapy and school guidance).  The goals of the Parent Education group include improved parent-child interaction, creating a more structured and predictable home environment, and better home-school coordination.  The topics include use of positive attention, token economies, and the educational needs of children with ADHD.

The group runs for eight weeks and sessions are 75 minutes in length.  The groups are lead by a licensed clinical psychologist. 

Next group:  

  • The next group will be September-November 2014 

Referrals for services may be made one of two ways:

  • If your child has not been evaluated by a MIND Institute clinician please call Julaila Musgrove, New Patient Referral Coordinator at 916-703-0308.
  • If you are currently receiving services at the MIND Institute or the child Behavioral Health Center, you may have your current treating practitioner/evaluator make an “in-house” referral.

You may contact J. Faye Dixon, Ph.D. at (916) 703-0265 or faye.dixon@ucdmc.ucdavis.edu for specific questions about the clinic services.  The MIND Institute ADHD Program accepts some private insurances or self-pay.  The groups are appropriate for parents with children ages 4-11.  For more information regarding the Behavioral Parent Education Group, click here (PDF).
