You’ll learn that sleep is especially important for children who sleep an average of 60% less than their peers. These kids have a much higher incidence of ADD, depression and suicidal behavior.

6
Treating ADD Through Food, Part 1

This lesson is all about food and ADD, starting with how your brain uses 25% of the calories that you consume. Of course, that means brain-healthy eating is essential for people with ADD.

7

Part 2 of Treating ADD Through Food focuses on starting an elimination diet. Dr. Amen explains that multiple scientific studies indicate that many people who have ADD-like symptoms also have sensitivity to food.

8
Treating ADD Through Food, Part 3

Mastering Sleep

Impulse Control

Lesson 16 moves into the area of your impulses and how to control them to make better decisions.

Get Curious, Not Furious

This session tackles the reality that mistakes are present in everyone’s life and that people who have ADD just have more. Dr. Amen will explain how it is essential to realize that failure is not fatal unless you don’t learn from the experience.

19
Calming a Busy Brain

Lesson 19 will help you calm your busy brain and learn how to feel more relaxed. Dr. Amen uses several effective techniques to transform your chaos into calm.

Soothing Anxiety

Dr. Amen will teach you how to get into a relaxed diaphragmatic breathing pattern that dramatically increases your focus so you can gain control of your emotions and actions.

21
Hypnosis for ADD

Dr. Amen will show you how hypnosis is effective when used with meditation and diaphragmatic breathing because it resets your brain if you are upset.

22
Creating Great Relationships: Parenting and Family

Dr. Amen presents research findings that show how parenting fits into four categories – loving, hateful, firm, and permissive. He then teaches that the goal for most relationships should be to reach “firm and kind” or “loving and firm” in order to establish a sense of trust and bonding.

23
Creating Strong Relationship Bonds

Lesson 23 is about bonding – the essential ingredient in any great relationship. Dr. Amen will show you that when someone in a family has ADD, the relational bonds are often strained or even broken because of chronic tension

24
Creating Structure in Relationships

This lesson contains some very important tips on how to inject organization and order into a home with ADD, which is certainly not natural. He drives home the need to be kind and helpful to others as the foundation to generating harmony and creating structure for great relationships to thrive.

25
Boosting Positive Behavior in Relationships

Lesson 25 is all about boosting positive behavior – a complete game changer in your relationships when one or more of the people in your life have ADD

26
Practicing Smart Discipline in Relationships

Lesson 26 focuses on discipline as a very important part of treating ADD. Dr. Amen explains that he speaks about discipline late in the course because he knows if the students absorb the earlier subjects, success will come at the end.

27
Creating Intimacy in Relationships

You’ll learn that when one or both partners in a relationship has ADD, it is important to understand that there are multiple dynamics at play. Dr. Amen will show you how a lack of understanding of these dynamics can devastate relationships and burn any possible bridge toward reconciliation in the future.
