Listen, as The ADD Couple, Brett Thornhill and I, discuss ADHD emotional complexities.
It’s not our first time, but it can’t be talked about enough.
I’m sharing our episode here so you can hear for yourself how much info we cover on our podcast. We air new episodes twice a week!
I hope you’ll enjoy it and subscribe to both podcasts: The ADD Couple and See in ADHD.
ADHD Emotional Complexities
Emotional regulation is the lesser researched of the executive functions.
That’s because it’s difficult to apply scientific method to emotions.
But emotions and emotional management can be really difficult to manage when you have ADHD.
Thankfully, to folks like James Ochoa, we can begin to understand how to help people without medication.
Please leave a comment below on your thoughts of the show.
“In Focused Forward: Navigating the Storms of Adult ADHD, author and self proclaimed “ADHD-er” James M. Ochoa, LPC goes beyond the management and scheduling techniques most ADHD books focus on to deal with what really holds so many ADHD-ers back—the emotional fallout of ADHD. He helps readers identify, manage and alleviate symptoms of a PTSD-like condition he calls the Emotional Distress Syndrome, with practical, proven advice including:
Understanding the link between ADHD and emotional distress
What Emotional Distress Syndrome (“EDS”) feels like
How to construct an Emotional Safe Place
How to recruit your own Mental Support Group
Eight essential tools to help you cope
With wisdom, humor, and plenty of (sometimes painful) empathy, Focused Forward will help adults with ADHD move past the pain and shame toward a future full of possibility, balance and joy.”
Especially relevant is that this book continues the conversation about the emotional component to ADHD.
So, please keep the discussion going, below.
