ADHD Behavioral Parent Education Group
Children with ADHD often present challenging and disruptive behavior at home. The Parent Education therapy group is one of four components for the treatment of ADHD currently offered by the MIND Institute ADHD Program. (The other components are medication therapy, organizational skill development group 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 appropriate use of time-out strategies.
The group runs for six to eight weeks and sessions are 1 hour in length. The groups are lead by a licensed clinical psychologist. The groups are appropriate for parents with children ages 4-11.
- The next group will be in 2014 (dates to be announced).
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 MIND Institute 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 firstname.lastname@example.org for specific questions about the clinic services. The MIND Institute ADHD Program accepts some private insurances or self-pay.
