Mindfulness for adolescents with ADHD : The effect of a mindfulness-based short-term group intervention (English)
Abstract [sv]

Svårigheter med uppmärksamhet, impulsivitet och överaktivitet är vanliga bland ungdomar. Förstahandsbehandlingen vid ADHD är farmakologisk, men den hjälper inte alla och flera bieffekter rapporteras. Denna studie undersökte om en åttaveckorskurs i mindfulness för ungdomar med ADHD skulle vara genomförbar, påverka deras grad av mindfulness samt påverka deras grad av ADHD-symtom. Sju ungdomar (14-18 år) deltog i studien som hade en multiple case design. Resultaten visade att interventionen kan betraktas som genomförbar och att en deltagare ökade sin grad av mindfulness. Avseende grad av ADHD-symtom var resultaten varierande. En slutsats som dras är att interventionen inte har haft en tydlig effekt på grad av mindfulness eller grad av ADHD-symtom.

Abstract [en]

Problems with attention, impulsivity and hyperaktivity are usual amongst adolescents. The first treatment of choise for ADHD is pharmacological, but the treatment doesn’t help everyone and several side effects are reported. This study examined if a mindfulness-based eight-week class for adolescents with ADHD would be feasible, if it would have effect on state of mindfulness and if it would have effect on ADHD-symptoms. Seven adolescents (14-18 yrs) participated in a multiple case design study. The results showed that the intervention was feasible and that one participant showed an increase in state of mindfulness. Regarding ADHD-symtoms the results were more variable. One conclusion is that the intervention hasn’t had a distinct effect on state of mindfulness or ADHD symptoms.
