When Worrying Takes Over: How You Can Overcome Anxiety and Live More Confidently – Living in a world that’s increasingly unpredictable, people are more anxious than ever before. For kids and adults with ADHD, worry and fear can increase their agitation, distractedness and impulsivity and make things seems worse than they are. Dr. Sharon Saline, author of What your ADHD Child Wishes You Knew: Working Together to Empower Kids in School and Life, discusses how anxiety works and what you can do differently to reduce your worries.
After reviewing the physiology and psychology of anxiety, Dr. Saline will show you how to change your relationship to worry and avoid the pitfalls of negative thinking. Instead of avoidance, rationalization or reassurance, you will learn techniques for separating the person from the anxiety, talking to the worry itself and creating effective responses to ‘what ifs’. Dr. Saline also explores issues such as insomnia, social concerns and work/school performance and share examples from kids and adults with ADHD who also struggle with anxiety. She offers tools for teaching both adults and kids how to realistically evaluate situations, tolerate uncertainty and calm down. With these skills in hand, people move forward with more confidence and much less worry.
