Free Webinar Replay: How ADHD Shapes Your Perceptions, Emotions & Motivation

In this hour-long webinar-on-demand, learn the true—and often overlooked—defining symptoms of ADHD with William Dodson, M.D.

The textbook symptoms of attention deficit disorder (ADHD or ADD) — inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity — are inadequate; they fail to reflect the complexity of the condition, and several of its most prevalent and powerful attributes.

Patients and clinicians who rely on the DSM-V alone tend to overlook these defining features of ADHD:

  1. an interest-based nervous system
  2. rejection sensitive dysphoria
  3. intense emotional responsiveness

Here, leading ADHD expert William Dodson, M.D., explains how these core features affect the daily life of individuals with ADHD, and how they often complicate diagnoses and treatment plans.

This webinar will explain:

  1. Why many adults with ADD are misdiagnosed with mood disorders
  2. Why shame is the dominant, or “master,” emotion among adults with ADHD
  3. Why individuals with ADHD are intensely and uniquely sensitive to being teased or criticized, and to feeling that they’ve failed
  4. Why individuals with ADHD can’t muster motivation out of thin air; they must be engaged and interested to start and complete a task
  5. How to use this knowledge to succeed in the neurotypical world
