Mindfulness Approaches with ADHD, Learning Disabilities & Dyslexia. 

Basant Pradhan, MD is an academic psychiatrist for adults and children, and currently works in Cooper University Health System, Camden, New Jersey. Pradhan is an inventor, researcher, mentor and writer.  Since 1993, his work involves pioneering translational research that combines cutting edge psychopharmacology with psychotherapy. Currently he serves as the founding director of Yoga and Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (Y-MBCT), and trans-cranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) programs. One of his books, Yoga and Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy: A Clinical Guide is a monograph with high impact and describes wellness model of mindfulness as well as many translational Y-MBCT models developed by him for treating major psychiatric conditions. TIMBER (Trauma Interventions using Mindfulness Based Extinction and Re-consolidation of trauma memories) is such a psychological treatment for PTSD. The Y-MBCT models are based on insights from Patanjali's Eight Limbed (Astanga) Yoga, Mindfulness meditation and neurobiology of psychiatric disorders. They have been standardized with the technique rich tools of tantra, and integrated with principles and tools of CBT. 
Pradhan's work has been awarded with grants from the Brain and Behavior Research Foundation (NARSAD), and the National Institute of Health (NIH). He is actively involved in national organizations like the Group for Advancement of Psychiatry (GAP), American Society for Adol Psychiatry & the American Psychiatric Association's Caucus on Integrative Medicine.
