What is SHINE?
Dr. Ned Hallowell, one of the leading authorities in the world of ADHD treatment, champions a “strength-based” approach to ADHD. The traditional, deficit-based model only addresses the deficits and problems ADHD can create in a person's life. Prior to Dr. Hallowell's approach many of the children with ADHD were labeled as bad kids, this has now changed. Dr. Hallowell has discovered that by identifying and focusing on a person's strengths and talents, in addition to implementing strategies to manage their challenges, patients can excel. Dr. Hallowell also stresses that one of the great appeals to helping those who have ADHD discover their talents and help gain back their self-esteem, is how life changing the process can be for people. This is because left undiagnosed, and untreated, ADHD can all but destroy a person's prospects. The SHINE program can truly rescue a person from despair.
We are excited to be working with Dr. Hallowell to implement this strength-based approach here in Salt Lake City at Prosper Clinic. We look forward to working with families to help identify the unique gifts these special individuals posses and help them grow to overcome the obstacles that lie in their way. We look forward to applying this unique program to help heal and look forward to seeing the growth and life changes. We look forward to working together with both adults and children and their families in order to help them develop strategies at home, work and school that will create positive change.
Our SHINE Program is extremely comprehensive and provides exactly what you will need in order to develop a very strong foundation for continued growth.
