The Potential Role of Mindfulness Meditation in the Treatment of ADHD

Mindfulness meditation is a decidedly hot topic right now, particularly as it relates to the potential role in the treatment of ADHD.

Fittingly, Bloor Cinema in Toronto recently screened a documentary offering some insight into the debate. The movie was called 'Free the Mind: Can you Rewire the Brain just by Taking a Breath?,' and showcased a mindfulness meditation program for children with ADHD and veterans with PTSD, run by Richard Dawson, a psychology professor at the University of Wisconsin.

Unfortunately the documentary is no longer playing, but since many of our staff got a chance to see it, we thought it was worth mentioning.
