Episode Description

Emotional Distress Syndrome associated with ADHD, was recently identified and named by James Ochoa after 27 years of working with and treating patients with ADHD. He observed in his patients that Emotional Distress Syndrome leads to anger, low-self esteem, and the inability to control resulting emotional storms.

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, individuals with ADHD can thrive — not just survive – and lead happy, productive lives.
