Details for Family and Advanced Camps 2018 are coming soon and plan to be posted by November 30, 2017. In the meantime, feel free to read below about this wonderfully helpful family experience!
A summer camp like none other. Families will learn, connect, and adventure together in the most beautiful place in America, the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore.
Dr Hallowell and Rob Himburg have created a one-of-a-kind weeklong camp for families. Children and parents attend separate morning sessions throughout the week, then have the afternoon and evenings to spend together. Dr Hallowell works with the parents and Rob works with the children. Parents participate in a highly interactive discussion-based seminar with Dr Hallowell, while the children work and play in a highly experiential adventure learning program created by Rob. The combination of the parallel programs can have an exponential growth effect for families - transforming past patterns and opening the way for better communication, understanding and connection.
From childhood through adulthood, ADHD can present both difficult dilemmas as well as unique opportunities for change, growth and success. Dr Hallowell's goal is to help people master the power of ADHD while avoiding its pitfalls. When the diagnosis of ADHD emphasizes what is wrong with a person, that person immediately starts to see himself in negative terms. Shame, fear and self-doubt grow. However, when the treatment of ADHD begins with an effort to find what is good and useful and powerful in a person and ferrets out their often hidden talents while emphasizing what's valuable, then the person sees him or herself in a positive light.
When explaining ADHD to a child, Dr Hallowell says, "You have a turbo charged mind - like a Ferrari engine, but you have the brakes of a bicycle. Don't worry, though, because Rob and I are brake experts." When ADHD is properly treated, the person can fulfill their dreams and succeed in whatever ways their talents lead them. Many doctors, lawyers, CEO's, inventors, actors, writers, explorers, entrepreneurs and innovators in diverse fields all have the trait so misleadingly called ADHD.
Interweaving introductory information with advanced material based on a strength-based approach to diagnosis and treatment, these seminars will show you how to unwrap the gifts of ADHD and how people who have ADHD can succeed at the very highest levels.
