Psych Central Article: Mindfulness for ADHD

I posted twice in April on research incorporating the use of mindfulness skills in the treatment of attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD): a study using Metacognitive Therapy and a pilot study using mindfulness meditation. Psych Central posted an article by Lynda McCollough yesterday on this growing body of research. The article focuses on some of the work being done through the Mindful Awareness Research Center (MARC) at UCLA. They've developed a program called Mindful Awareness Practices for ADHD (MAP), and the article has comments by Lidia Zylowska, MD, a psychiatrist who founded MARC. It provides a nice overview of some of their work and has some useful links and citations.
