Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder is more about self-regulation than it is about a deficit of attention. Attention and emotion both are things that need to be regulated. For many kids with ADHD, emotional self-regulation is more challenging. They seem to be unable to cope or ready to explode on a daily basis. Parents want to help their child with ADHD learn to control emotions and boost self-esteem, but they often wonder how to help their child. What if art could help the child learn to manage his emotions when he is a firecracker about to explode? In this episode of Attention Talk Radio, guest host Caroline Maguire (http://www.necoaching.com) interviews Holly Oberacker and Tracey Bromley Goodwin, partners in Navigating ADHD (http://www.navigatingadhd.com), about using art as a means to help kids down-regulate their emotions and channel their frustrations. If your child struggles with emotional self-regulation this is a show you won’t want to miss.
