Publisher Comments:

Do you:

   • Suffer from disorganization and forgetfulness?

   • Have difficulty managing feelings of anger and frustration?

   • Struggle with self-doubt and difficulty following through?

   • Often feel restless or bored?

Are these challenges causing problems in your relationships or your work? If so, like an estimated 8 million adults in this country, you may have Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Physician-researcher Dr. Lidia Zylowska (Dr. Z) specializes in the applications of mindfulness in mental health, and in this book she offers an effective mindfulness-based approach to overcoming attention deficits.

The Mindfulness Prescription for Adult ADHD offers an 8-step program that teaches simple yet powerful mindfulness practices, adapted for those struggling with ADHD. Practices include sitting meditation, body awareness, mindful speaking and listening, self-acceptance, and more. Throughout the book are short vignettes and examples of adults with ADHD demonstrating how mindful awareness can be used to manage typical ADHD-related challenges.

The Mindfulness Prescription for Adult ADHD also educates readers about ADHD, helping them to see this condition as a neurobiological difference that comes with strengths as well as weaknesses. In addition, Dr. Z explains how the mindful approach can be combined with other common treatments, such as medications or cognitive behavioral therapy, to enhance self-improvement and quality of life.

Synopsis:

Do you:

   • Have trouble paying attention and staying on task?

   • Suffer from disorganization, procrastination, or forgetfulness?

   • Have difficulty with restlessness or trouble managing strong feelings such as anger and frustration?

   • Struggle with self-doubt and difficulty following through?

   • In a way that causes problems in your relationships or your work?

If so, you may have Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)—like an estimated 8 million adults in this country. Physician-researcher Dr. Lidia Zylowska has created an 8-step program for using mindfulness practice (attention and awareness training) to overcome the symptoms of ADHD. The program includes practices such as sitting meditation, body awareness, thoughtful speaking and listening, development of self-acceptance, mindful self-coaching, cultivation of a balanced view of thoughts and emotions, and more. Dr. Zylowska educates readers about ADHD, helping them to understand how their ADHD brain works and how they can use mindful awareness to work with their challenges. She also explains how the mindful approach can be combined with other treatments, including medications, to boost self-improvement.

This book is accompanied by an audio program of guided mindfulness exercises for successfully managing ADHD.
