Re: Memory Training Unlikely to Help in Treating ADHD

D. Long-Term Goals of Development Take Precedence Over Short-Term Behavioral Objectives

a. The plasticity of the human brain: allows new circuits of impulse control, motivation, and attention
to develop if the right conditions for such development are provided;
b. The essential conditions that only adults can offer to children, and only mindful and conscious
caregivers can offer to adults
unconditional positive regard: the importance of relationship;
compassionate curiosity;
c. Behavioral goals and behavioral techniques often result in emotional shut-down, the loss of

d. The negative impact of punishments and rewards.
e. Understanding what is being acted out
