Free Webinar Replay: Beyond Shame and Guilt: Transformative Strategies for Women with ADD

In this hour long webinar on demand, learn how women with ADHD can move out of shame and into intentional living, with Michell Frank, Psy.D.

As a woman living with attention deficit disorder (ADHD or ADD), you are no doubt familiar with shame — and its dear friends guilt, fear, and self-limitation. You also might find yourself asking the million-dollar question: “ADHD awareness is good, but… what now?”

The first stepping stone for change is this: Come face-to-face with your own experiences and stories of shame, and the ways in which those narratives inform your relationships with yourself, your spouse, your child, and/or the world. This reckoning helps us create space for new choices and behaviors. Once we reach that space, however, we can easily feel lost and wondering, “What do I do with this awareness?” The answer? You very slowly begin the process of change by focusing intently on building up your courage, intentionality, and curiosity.

In this webinar, we’ll talk about the “How?” that follows the “Why?” More specifically, you’ll learn:

  • Common ways that past experiences of shame manifest as self-limiting beliefs and behavior patterns for women with ADHD
  • How those limitations impact women as mothers, partners, friends, and colleagues
  • What acceptance really means, how it differs from resignation, and what it looks like to practice radical acceptance and shame-free living in the here-and-now
  • Concrete steps that you can take to move out of shame and into intentional living
  • Ways to improve your relationship with yourself, your children, your partner, your friends, and your colleagues
  • Key questions to ask yourself to begin to live bigger, brighter, and bolder – differences and all

  1. To ADDitude and Dr. Michelle Frank; THANK YOU so much for this Webinar…I was crying through most of it. I am still undiagnosed; sort of holding back on official diagnosis becaue of money, husband’s full support (we have been talking slowly) and time [and maybe a bit of fear “what if I do have it?…what if I don’t?”].
    In the meantime, ADDitude’s articles and webinars have been so helpful. I was reflected in much of what Dr. Frank described here…I am not sure about my steps forward, but it just felt so good (and opened floodgates) to hear such understanding and such a succinct description of what I deal with daily.
