Book 68 of Year 2017 – “Mindfulness for teens with ADHD” by Debra Burdick, Lara Honos-Webb

Official TitleMindfulness for Teens with ADHD: A Skill-Building Workbook to Help You Focus and Succeed

Genre – Non fiction

Book Length – 152 pages

Reading Time – 5 hours

Style/ Plot – The introduction to this book was very interesting to read as Debra wrote letters to three sets of people: Teens with ADHD, Parents of teens with ADHD and Professionals. I found it very instructive as she took the time to explain how the activities in the book can be exercised and applied.

As the title implies, it is a book about showing teens with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) how to learn and practice mindfulness. There are quite a number of exercises for readers to do. Audio versions of processes are also provided in the book and I think this is really handy.

There also stories and examples of teens who tackled certain challenges they had with ADHD and how they pulled through.

Favourite Quote – “Brain research shows us that our brains have the ability to change. This ability is called neuroplasticity. You can change your brain’s ability to pay attention by practicing various mindfulness skills.
