As part of our charity work to support adults with ADHD in Edinburgh, Scotland UK we run metacognition group support sessions. We have a 10 session programme for small groups. The main differences we find is that you explain the reasons for implementing tools and strategies to help executive functioning difficulties, poor working memory and emotional regulation problems.
I am very interested in finding out about your programme of metacognition group support sessions. How would I get this information, and from whom?
I am diagnosed as ADD and Bipolar Depressive and my young son (12 years old) has been diagnosed as ADD with only occasional and mild hyperactivity.
We are in Morayshire, Scotland and I don’t think there is this service available anywhere up here? I have always refused any drug treatments, for either of us, preferring CBT, self help and Depression Management Course for myself. My son has had no treatment or therapy, other than some behaviour management in school.. simply assessment, without any solution sought.
Our lives are very frequently difficult and distressing.
