Psychotherapy and psychosocial interventions for children and adolescents with ADHD

Psychological support for a child with ADHD

Children and young people with ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) often need psychological support to manage their symptoms and improve their daily functioning.
A child psychologist and child and adolescent therapist in Krakow play a key role in providing professional help to these patients.

Behavioral therapy

Behavioral therapy is an effective form of psychotherapy that helps people with ADHD change their behavior. During behavioral therapy, they learn to monitor their behavior, use reward and consequence mechanisms, and deal with impulsive reactions. Therapists teach children social skills, such as sharing toys or dealing with emotions.

Cognitive-behavioral therapy

Cognitive behavioral therapy helps people with ADHD manage their thoughts and emotions. They learn to accept their thoughts and feelings, which has a positive effect on concentration and attention.

Family and marital therapy

Family and marital therapy is designed to support a family in dealing with the symptoms of ADHD in one of its members. It helps in building positive family relationships and teaches effective methods of communication.

Parenting skills training

Parent Behavioral Management Training helps parents learn techniques to encourage and reward positive behavior in children with ADHD. This helps you control your child’s behavior and create consistent rules.

Psychosocial interventions at school

For children and young people with ADHD, school plays a key role in their lives. Cooperation with teachers and school specialists can bring significant improvements in the functioning of students. Behavior management plans, organizational skills training, and academic adjustments are effective interventions to help students cope with ADHD symptoms in the school environment.

Tips for parents and adults with ADHD

For adults with ADHD, the support of a professional counselor or therapist can help you organize your life through a variety of techniques, such as maintaining a routine, making to-do lists, and using reminder notes.
