12WeekproglThis ADHD training program was created so that almost anyone can run an ADHD Support Group. ADHD is a complex condition that is mired in  needless controversy, and therefore requires solid, tried and tested information. This program sets out to do just that.

This program provides solid information, and is packed with practical tools that each attendee can apply into their own situations. It is unique in this regard.

Although the title says it is aimed at parents, teachers will also benefit enormously from the program as the material is sufficiently generic to be applied into any classroom.

Teachers can of course, run this program in their schools for parents of ADHD children – it is a very powerful tool when used like that.

This program has been designed so that it can be run by almost anyone – there are many options in how it is presented.

GROUP GUIDELINES

The program can be presented in the following ways, and even in ways that we have not yet thought of.

The Living ADDventure® Support Group Program is most effective when the following guidelines are followed:

  • Optimal group size is 8 people. This enables maximum benefit in terms of discussion, sharing and group member support.More than 12 and the effectiveness for everyone becomes remarkably reduced. Less than 4 people and the group loses a lot of dynamism and variety of input, also reducing effectivesness.
  • The group leader needs to be accommodating in terms of regular attendance. Some of the best results have been when the course takes longer than 12 weeks.
  • For example, a group that took a leisurely 7 months had excellent results. NB: Results are not just reliant on time taken, another Leader ran her groups over 6 weeks, doing 2 modules per session and reported excellent results as well.
  • The group leader is able to run more than one course at the same time.  You can theoretically run 12 groups a week, one in the morning for 6 days a week, and one in the evening for 5 days week, and one on Saturday afternoons. Some people can only attend at certain times of the day. We have found school holidays to be poorly attended.
  • It is not a good idea to have both parents in the samegroup. This destroys the effectiveness of the group, as neither partner can be natural and open. Also if there is tension between them, that impacts the entire group negatively.
  • Varying degrees of bonding within the group occur, and this remains long after the group has finished the formal phase. This provides great opportunities for get togethers and even large meetings with multiple group members.

PRESENTATION OPTIONS

First Presentation Option:

  • Play the video to the group – each is approximately 15 minutes
  • The leader then leads discussion on the material – leader notes and guides are supplied.

Second Presentation Option:

  • Do a round-robin opening discussion on the previous week's learning and/or any major issues in members lives. These are almost invariably related to ADHD, and so are relevant
  • Play the video to the group
  • Discussion on the material
  • Closing round-robin discussion on the week ahead

Third Presentation Option:

  • Do a round-robin opening discussion on the previous week's learning
  • The group leader presents the material without the video, the comprehensive notes provide support for this
  • Closing round-robin discussion on the week ahead
