Family Therapy for ADHD from Childhood Through Launching

Kids, teens, and young adults with ADHD can put parents (and therapists) in a bind—should they be given more oversight to ensure success or more freedom to learn on their own? Author and international speaker Ari Tuckman, PsyD will explain the many ways that ADHD executive function deficits impact family life and the strategies are most effective for managing these additional struggles. You will learn how to help these families navigate the daily challenges more effectively in order to reduce conflict, foster understanding of ADHD, and support agency to prepare young adults for launching into college and beyond. This will take the therapist out of the middle of the endless tug of wars and give them a framework to help these families.
