Living with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder can be challenging for individuals and their families. However, with the proper guidance and strategies, it's possible to thrive despite the hurdles that ADHD can present. That's why REACH ADHD Coaching and Consultancy is excited to share our recent experience attending Dr. Ross Greene's training session. This training will equip us with valuable tools to support our clients on their ADHD journey better.
Understanding Dr. Ross Greene's Approach
Dr Ross Greene is a renowned clinical psychologist and author known for his innovative approach to understanding and managing challenging behaviour in individuals, especially those with ADHD. His Collaborative and Proactive Solutions (CPS) model emphasises collaboration between individuals with ADHD and their support network, aiming to solve problems and address challenges together. Dr. Greene's work has profoundly impacted how we approach ADHD coaching and consultancy.
Key Takeaways from the Training Session
We delved into various aspects of Dr. Greene's CPS model during the training session. Some of the key takeaways that resonated with us and our mission at REACH ADHD Coaching and Consultancy include:
Collaboration is Key: Dr. Greene's model prioritises collaboration over coercion. It recognises that individuals with ADHD are not intentionally tricky; they may lack the skills to navigate life's challenges effectively. By collaborating with them, we can identify and address the underlying issues causing their behaviour.
Empathy and Understanding: Understanding the perspective and experiences of individuals with ADHD is crucial. We learned to empathise with their struggles and frustrations, which will allow us to build trust and rapport, which is essential for effective coaching.
Problem-Solving Approach: Dr. Greene's model encourages a problem-solving approach to address the specific issues causing distress. This approach aligns perfectly with our goal of providing tailored strategies to help our clients overcome their challenges.
Implementing Strategies for Our Clients
At REACH ADHD Coaching and Consultancy, we are excited to implement the strategies we learned from Dr. Ross Greene's training session. Our clients will benefit significantly from this approach, as it emphasises their active participation in finding solutions to their challenges.
Some of the strategies we plan to implement include:
Open and Honest Communication: We will foster open and honest communication with our clients to understand their perspectives and concerns better.
Collaborative Goal Setting: We will work with our clients to set achievable goals aligning with their aspirations and strengths.
Problem-Solving: We will conduct coaching sessions focusing on our client's specific challenges, using practical solutions.
Family and Support Network Involvement: We will actively involve families and support networks in coaching to ensure a holistic and collaborative approach to managing ADHD-related issues.
In conclusion, our recent training session with Dr. Ross Greene has equipped us with valuable insights and strategies to enhance our ADHD coaching and consultancy services at REACH. We are excited to put these approaches into practice and provide our clients with the support they need to thrive despite ADHD-related challenges. We aim to empower our clients to lead fulfilling lives by embracing collaboration, empathy, and problem-solving. Together, we can positively impact the ADHD community, one step at a time.
