Debra Burdick, LCSW, BCN, also known as ‘The Brain Lady’, is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and a board certified neurofeedback practitioner. Debra is an international speaker and author of the best-selling books, Mindfulness Skills Workbook for Clinicians and Clients: 111 Tools, Techniques, Activities & Worksheets (PESI, 2013), Mindfulness Skills for Kids & Teens: A Workbook for Clinicians & Clients with 154 Tools, Techniques, Activities and Worksheets (PESI, 2014), ADHD: Non-Medication Treatments and Skills for Children and Teens (PESI, 2015) and Mindfulness Skills for Kids: Card Deck and 3 Card Games (PESI, 2017). She has taught mindfulness skills to her clients for over 25 years.
She recently retired from her private practice, and previously worked at the Child Guidance Clinic, Family Services, Child and Family Agency, and Lawrence and Memorial Hospital.
Debra incorporates mindfulness skills in all areas of her practice. She initially became interested in mindfulness to deal with a chronic illness (now thankfully healed). She found it so helpful in her own life that she started teaching her clients the skills she was using. She went on to develop clinical material on mindfulness skills and created a four-step process for working with clients using mindfulness that she perfected in her private practice and in an intensive outpatient program. Her clients have shown her that mindfulness skills improve the rate and quality of treatment outcomes.
Debra has presented numerous presentations, workshops, and teleseminars. She is often interviewed on Internet radio and telesummits and her work has been featured in The Day newspaper, Self-Improvement Magazine, and “Parenting Powers” television show.

"A brilliant, practical compendium of tools, resources, ideas and techniques to help children who have ADHD without using medication. Well-researched and clearly written, this book is a gem!"
-Edward Hallowell, MD, author, psychiatrist and international expert on ADHD
"Medication which should be a last resort for kids with ADHD, has become the first and often the only offered treatment. This speaks to the crucial importance of Debra Burdick's latest book, ADHD: Non-Medication Treatments and Skills for Children and Teens. The book offers 162 techniques, tips, activities and resources that can be used instead of medication to manage and moderate the worst ADHD symptoms. I highly recommend this book for parents, either dealing with a new ADHD diagnosis in a child or for those who wish to try another option other than medication."
-Dale Archer, MD, psychiatrist and NY Times bestselling author of Better Than Normal and The ADHD Advantage
"Debra Burdick did it again! Following the success of her mindfulness book for kids and teens, she offers an array of non-medication treatment skills for ADHD. Anyone working with children and teens will find this a treasure chest of practical, hands-on, effective and engaging tools and activities that are easy for the clinician to use. Tips for identifying and diagnosing ADHD, treatment options, nutrition suggestions, valuable tools for social, organizational and mindfulness skills, along with tips for parents makes this book a one-stop shop for the practitioner's ADHD toolbox. An invaluable go-to resource and a true gold mine!"
-Judith Belmont, MS, author of the T.I.P.S. and Tools for the Therapeutic Toolbox Series
"Burdick provides a very accessible reading style and countless well thought-out strategies. This book covers a wide range of approaches to help these children, their teachers and parents, become more successful in managing ADHD. This is a great reference for anyone working with children or teens with ADHD."
-Roger deBeus, PhD, Clinical Trial Principal Investigator, Neurofeedback for ADHD
"An amazingly comprehensive book geared to mental health professionals, parents, teachers and children of ADHD from a holistic approach. Readers who are seeking a non-medication approach to ADHD have come to the best source! With over 162 tools, techniques, tips, activities, resources and worksheets, it is a perfect 'one-stop' book.
As a parent of a child with ADD, now an adult, I wish this book was available years ago! But as a professional working with children and teens, it is invaluable now. ADHD: Non-Medication Treatments & Skills for Children and Teens is definitely a must-have book for one's professional or personal library."
