Emotional Distress Syndrome associated with ADHD, recently identified and named by James Ochoa, comes from his working with and treating ADHD patients over 27 years. He observed that Emotional Distress Syndrome leads to anger, low-self esteem, and the inability to control resulting emotional storms in his patients. While ADHD medication and behavior therapy help with focus and hyperactivity, they do very little for Emotional Distress Syndrome. Fortunately, Ochoa created strategies for navigating the devastating disruptions caused by the condition. With these groundbreaking pathways, ADHDers can thrive–not just survive– and lead happy, productive lives. In this webinar, you will learn:

> The symptoms of Emotional Distress Syndrome in an ADHD brain

> How Emotional Distress Syndrome is a covert form of post-traumatic stress disorder

> How Emotional Distress Syndrome affects your everyday life and wellbeing

> Why you need to manage Emotional Distress Syndrome

> 8 important tools for weathering emotional storms

> The importance of building and maintaining healthy self-esteem and self-identity
