Description

As ubiquitous as it is, the condition we misleadingly call ADHD is too often misunderstood, even by professionals. Rather than treating it as a deficit or a disorder, the best outcomes derive from a new strengths-based model that reconceives ADHD as VAST (Variable Attention Stimulus Trait). Discover cutting-edge interventions based on the VAST approach that can change the lives of clients of all ages. You’ll learn: 

  • How to explain the VAST model to clients in plain language, so they start seeing and using their unique brain traits as an asset rather than a curse 
  • The role of medication vs. nonmedication interventions for children and adults 
  • How to help clients avoid the major pitfalls of VAST, such as chronic self-attack, rumination, underachievement, substance abuse and other addictions, poor relationship choices, and the consequences of disorganization
