ADHD Family Support

Not only is it difficult to have ADHD, it is also difficult to live with someone who has it.

 

Following our model of the family as a mobile suspended from the mobileceiling, everyone in the family can be affected by it -- especially parents and other caregivers.

 

Through family therapy or parent coaching, at Bill Jacobs LPCC, we offer support for parents who are stressed by their child's ADHD in our Albuquerque counseling practice.

 

Here are some of the kinds of things parents of children with ADHD can feel:

 

 

All the self blaming and guilt usually creates anxiety, which only increases anxiety in our child, which in turn increases their negative behaviors.

 

We work with parents to turn that cycle around so their calm helps to calm their child.

 

Continue on from ADHD Family Support to "She Must Have ADD."
