Orientation on the ” Schools of Parents ”

There must be 12 sessions of treatment, the first being an open session where parents freely express the difficulties they have with their children, trying to detect patterns of abandonment, affective lack, divided authority, potentially traumatic events (family conflicts, divorce), inadequate educational methods of parents and relatives, etc.

In the following sessions lectures and conferences are given to parents with the aim of having a greater knowledge about the characteristics, causes and consequences of Hyperactivity, as well as working in relation to inappropriate attitudes, offering solutions to some individual problems that can present the parents.

In the last session the conclusions of the treatment will be given, where the categories of High and High Improved will be given, where the first one is given to the children who have solved their problem. The second category (High Improved) will be granted in the case of students who overcome part of the problem but not totally and therefore must be incorporated into a new treatment.
