Episode Description

Professional athletes are taught to stay the course during their routine and often grueling training, pouring in every available ounce of energy even when their motivation lags and their bodies hurt. How do they do it? Behavioral strategies of sports psychology help them to focus and prioritize winning. These techniques are also effective for adults with ADHD in their daily lives, and for those who struggle when the newness of a routine or job wears off, resulting in low motivation and poor performance.

Here, Dr. Dawn K. Brown — a double-board certified child & adolescent, adult and sports psychiatrist, and founder of ADHD Wellness Center PLLC and Mental Healthletics PLLC — will explain how to use athletes’ behavioral management strategies to overcome the daily challenges associated with ADHD.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • The Coach’s Playbook: Behavioral strategies to get you back in the game when performance is poor and motivation is low
  • Performance Conditioning: Three routines that create the foundation for sustaining focus, managing moods, and completing tasks
  • The Essential Meal Plan: Foods and medicine that help optimize the ADHD brain’s performance and productivity
