Watch the free replay of the webinar 5 Ways to Be a Better Dad: Parenting Strategies for Men with ADHD with Terry M. Dickson, M.D., ACG, CPCC originally aired Wednesday, January 6, 2015 and download the expert slides.

Here’s a staggering statistic: Roughly 4.5 million American fathers have been diagnosed with ADHD, and many more are living with undiagnosed symptoms like distractibility, disorganization, and poor anger management that make parenting more difficult. Add to that a general lack of support for Dads and a genetic link that makes ADHD run in the family, and you’ve got a generation of fathers who need special strategies — now.

This webinar addresses…

> Why men with ADHD are prone to angry outbursts, and how they can keep from unleashing that rage on loved ones

> How feelings of guilt, shame, and worthlessness build up under the surface, and how to improve poor self-esteem before it harms your family life

> Strategies for accepting the traits, gifts, and idiosyncrasies that make your children unique

> How to move beyond setbacks without letting them derail your home or work life

> How ADHD treatment and coaching can improve your marriage and/or your relationships with your children
