When ADHD Triggers Emotional Outbursts: Scripts for Your Flashpoints (Part Two)

March 1 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm MST


EXPERT: Sharon Saline, Psy.D.

ADHD brings with it strong emotions — but few tools for managing those emotions in ways that feel good.  In these difficult moments of an amygdala hijack, the thinking brain goes offline and emotions rule the day. It can be really tough to regain control over yourself or a situation. Whether prompted by fear, anger, hurt, or disappointment, we sometimes say or do things impulsively that we later regret. To change these patterns, we must first learn how to identify and respond to triggers without self-criticism. This is the path forward for nurturing radical self-acceptance and creating satisfying interpersonal connections.

You’ll walk away with a strategic plan for dealing with your feelings and the reactions of others with less stress and more compassion.

The learning objectives of this webinar include:

  1. Answer your questions (submitted during Part One of this webinar and live) about controlling and communicating emotions in the moment
  2. Offer solutions to promote greater body-based awareness and key language tools to intervene with flooding, rejection sensitivity, and frustration
  3. Construct useful phrases and actions for managing dysregulation in self and others
  4. Practice and employ key elements of radical self-acceptance
