(ADHD) Does mindfulness meditation improve attention in attention deficit hyperactivity disorder?

(ADHD) Does mindfulness meditation improve attention in attention deficit hyperactivity disorder? | ADHD-TDAH Mindfulness | Scoop.it
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) manifests by high levels of inattention, impulsiveness and hyperactivity. ADHD starts in childhood and results in impairments that continue into adulthood. While hyperactivity declines over time, inattention and executive function difficulties persist, leading to functional deficits. Adolescents and adults with ADHD have pervasive impairment in interpersonal and family relationships. They may develop addiction, delinquent behavior and comorbid psychiatric disorders. Despite advances in diagnosis and treatment, persistent residual symptoms are common, highlighting the need for novel treatment strategies. Mindfulness training, derived from Eastern meditation practices, may improve self-regulation of attention. It may also be a useful strategy to augment standard ADHD treatments and may be used as a potential tool to reduce impairments in patients with residual symptoms of ADHD. Clinically, this would manifest by an increased ability to suppress task-unrelated thoughts and distractions resulting in improved attention, completion of tasks and potential improvement in occupational and social function.

Mónica Valero's insight:

A study recently published online in the Journal of Attention Disorders, A pilot trial of mindfulness meditation training for ADHD in adulthood: Impact on core symptoms, executive functioning and emotion dysregulation, provides the most rigorous investigation to date of mindfulness meditation training for adults with ADHD.

Twenty-two adults with ADHD (average age 38, 12 females) were randomly assigned to an 8-week group-based mindfulness meditation training program or a wait-list control condition.

Mónica Valero's insight:

En este artículo, Sheldon Horowitz argumenta los beneficios que un entrenamiento en mindfulness a niños y jóvenes, facilita su crecimiento y madurez cognitiva. Añade que para niños con TDAH, el programa ha de adaptarse comenzando con tiempos cortos al sostener la atención y prácticas que incluyan el movimiento. Cierra el artículo remarcando como "inestimable" el resultado de haber trabajado desde pequeños con herramientas que te ayudan de por vida a calmar la mente. 

Desde mi punto de vista, que los papás/mamás se formen durante 8 semanas y se enamoren de esta disciplina, es clave para transformar el entorno familiar y asegurar una evolución adecuada de los peques.
