“All the Feels: An ADHD Guide to Emotional Dysregulation and Rejection Sensitive Dysphoria” [Video Replay & Podcast #259]

In this hour long webinar on demand, learn about emotional dysregulation and rejection sensitive dysphoria with William Dodson, M.D.

Episode Description

People with ADHD feel emotions more intensely, more frequently, and more suddenly. For many, emotional dysregulation is one of the most challenging core symptoms of ADHD to manage. In fact, one third of adults with ADHD say the inability to manage their emotions is the most impairing aspect of their ADHD, adversely affecting work performance and personal relationships.

Among the biggest emotional challenges facing adults with ADHD is Rejection sensitive dysphoria, an extreme sensitivity to criticism and judgment that seems to exist only in those diagnosed with the disorder. The good news is that certain ADHD medications can relieve RSD for about half of people diagnosed with it.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • Why emotional dysregulation is now considered a primary and fundamental feature of ADHD at all stages in the life cycle
  • How out-of-control emotions undermine relationships, self-confidence, and a strong sense of self
  • Why Rejection Sensitivity Dysphoria may be unique to people with ADHD
  • How cognitive behavioral techniques and dialectical behavior therapy can manage emotional dysregulation at all ages
  • The go-to medications that can prevent emotional impulsivity
