This fall the Springboard Clinic are offering two group resources, with a focus on supporting partners and parents of individuals diagnosed with ADHD.
1) Finding Joy in your ADHD Relationship:
A Workshop for Partners of Individuals with Focusing Challenges/ADHD
Relationships where one partner has ADHD can be deeply challenging. Join the Springboard Clinic for a supportive evening of discussion to learn about how ADHD symptoms can affect both individuals within a relationship, identify typical relational patterns, and explore effective communication strategies with the goal of decreasing conflict and strengthening connection in your relationship. The workshop offers a space to express and be heard with other individuals who are partners with someone with ADHD, psychoeducation on ADHD and relationships, and an opportunity to consider your own relationship through a new lens.
2) Springboard Online Parent Workshop:
A Two Evening Mini-Series with Laura MacNiven
Springboard Clinic's Laura MacNiven is hosting a two session online mini-series for parents of ADHD children. In two 60 minute sessions, she will walk you through strategies like "being an ADHD detective, 5 steps to mindful parenting and picking battles before you need to".
Offering an opportunity to take stock of where you are, and think about where you are going, these two sessions are designed to help you find new energy and a clearer headspace to take back to your everyday parenting. Multiple family members are encouraged to participate, and this content is suitable for parents with children of all ages.
Note: Please set aside 60 minutes to do some reflective work in between the two sessions.
