ADDA’s Webinars/Teleclasses have been such a hit that we’re offering classes throughout the year! Teleclasses will run for an hour, on Wednesday nights starting at 9:00 PM EST. The classes have been expanded, from a phone-based program to a Webinar format. Now members will also have the ability to login online, via a link we provide, to chat with other participants and view the slides as the presenter is scrolling through them. Attendees will be able to send their questions to the speaker via the Web and hear them answered live.
"Just wanted to tell you what a great webinar that was! This was the first time I'd been able to hear Dr. Tracy Ware, and it's refreshing to hear someone talk about actual rigorous research relevant to ADHD. Thanks! ~Catherine"

A Positive Coaching Mindset for Creating a Fulfilling Life for Adults with ADHD
Adults with ADHD often have negative perceptions of themselves. ADHD tends to co-exist with other psychological problems (such as depression, anxiety disorders, bipolar disorder, etc.), and the symptoms can be difficult to self-assess.
Research Results indicate that more than three out of 4 adults with ADHD believe that ADHD has made it difficult for them to follow-through on things and/or initiate and maintain romantic relationships. The vast majority also believe that ADHD has held them back from achieving long-term and short-term goals and/or from pursuing their dreams.
Adults with ADHD not only struggle with the invisible challenges of inattention, impulsivity and hyperactivity , they also experience the pain, physically and mentally, associated with the negative experiences of their inability to effectively function in order to complete important tasks and goals in their lives.
Unfortunately, negative events and experiences generally have more impact than positive ones.
The brain and especially the ADHD brain, typically detects and takes in negative information faster than positive information. The brain is drawn to bad news. Your brain becomes like a magnet for negative experiences and has to learn to deflect these negative experiences like Teflon.
Because the brain has a built-in negativity bias that primes each individual for avoidance we have to become aware of this negative bias and begin to consciously create a positive focus and discipline that can become the antidote to trump the negative dominant thoughts which can immobilize adults with ADHD.
During this one-hour ADDA educational session, David Giwerc, Founder/President of the ADD Coach Academy and a Master Certified ADHD coach, MCAC and former president of ADDA, will be interviewed by Linda Roggli, by ADDA's dynamic webinar series host. They will talk about the power of coaching to integrate positive thoughts, emotions and memory to activate and sustain action for the completion of important tasks and goals. They will discuss key research that conclusively supports how paying attention to and integrating positive thoughts and emotions, on daily basis, can significantly extend and improve the quality of your life. It can also dramatically improve your ability to consistently access your executive functions for more success and fulfillment in your life.
David will share specific examples/stories, strategies and distinctions, from his over 15 years coaching adults with ADHD, that need to be integrated into your life to positively change the perception of ADHD as a disorder that holds you back to a unique brain wiring that empowers you to create the life you deserve. He will discuss how ADHD coaching empowers you to integrate all the key elements necessary for a powerful daily discipline of positive thinking and action to strengthen the architecture of your brain as well as your ability to create new possibilities aligned with the passion of your heart.
