Combating ADHD Stereotypes

October 12, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm UTC+0


TIME: Tuesday, October 12 at 11 AM (MST)

EXPERTS: Edward Hallowell, M.D., Sari Solden, M.S., LMFT

Few conditions in medicine and psychology suffer from more caricature, stereotype, flat-out lies, or disinformation than ADHD. Those diagnosed with ADHD run into these stereotypes daily. Friends, family, co-workers, and even some clinicians who diagnose adults and children perpetuate the stereotypes with inaccurate facts and misguided opinions. It is our job to know the facts about ADHD and to stand up for ourselves when confronted with these pathologizing myths, misinformation, and false narratives. There is no better time to start than ADHD Awareness Month.

In this webinar, experts Ned Hallowell and Sari Solden will discuss the most common stereotypes about adults and children diagnosed with ADHD and help you counter these mistaken ideas with facts, not anger. This ADHD Awareness Month, you will learn…

  • Common stereotypes that hamper understanding of the condition in men and women diagnosed with hyperactive and primarily inattentive-type ADHD
  • Strategies to blunt feelings of shame or guilt when others make hurtful, inaccurate statements about you or your ADHD
  • How to become an “authority” on ADHD
  • How to communicate with friends and families about their ADHD misconceptions
