Our understanding of ADHD has evolved considerably in the last three decades. Here, ADHD experts Dr. Ned Hallowell and Dr. John J. Ratey explain the latest and most consequential research, along with the most effective treatment techniques to manage it, based on their 30 years working with patients. To them, ADHD is not a deficit but an overabundance of attention that all individuals experience to different degrees. Most important, they say, ADHD can be managed and harnessed in productive, fulfilling ways.
In this webinar, Hallowell and Ratey will help adults and children develop a constructive, hopeful view of ADHD. They will provide a plan for parents and adults that minimizes the downsides and emphasizes the benefits of ADHD at any age by presenting an arsenal of new strategies and lifestyle hacks designed to help anyone thrive with the condition.
Webinar listeners will learn how to:
- Use behavior assessments to discover the work, activity, or creative outlet best suited to an individual’s strengths
- Enhance creativity and entrepreneurial spirit at home, at school, or in the workplace
- Take advantage of new findings about the brain’s default mode network and cerebellum
- Tap into human connection to manage the negativity that plagues so many people with ADHD
- Use exercise and play to increase focus, memory, and emotional wellbeing
- Understand the true benefits of ADHD medication
