Welcome to the Cultivating Compassion project and the ADHD Clinic at the Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology of Rutgers University.
Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is one of the most frequently diagnosed disorders in children and affects the lives of over 6.4 million children in the United States. Traditional treatments for ADHD, both behavioral and medication-based, focus primarily on modifying problematic behavior. At the ADHD Clinic, we take a different approach. Our treatment is designed to support the whole child, by addressing the thoughts, feelings, and relationships that underlie problematic behavior, increasing resilience, and improving emotional/behavioral regulation. We believe that when children live and learn in compassionate environments, their experience of themselves and their behaviors are transformed.
We specialize in proving short-term treatment for children age 5-12 who are struggling with ADHD symptoms. We also provide support for parents and welcome opportunities to consult with teachers.
