Creating the Balance: Managing the regulatory, practical, and emotional aspects of ADHD
May 18 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
It can be tempting to think that ADHD is just about attention, focus, or hyperactivity. But the ADHD experience is much more complex than that- it’s about the regulation of all of our brain functions-including emotions and the way these regulation issues play out in daily life. And each of these components: regulatory, practical, and emotional interplay to lift each other up or bring each other down. In fact, oftentimes, when someone feels stuck in the management of their ADHD- it’s because one of these three factors has not been fully addressed. In this session, we will explore the 3 components of the ADHD experience, the ways in which they interplay, and how to best manage each one in order to accelerate growth.
