Not available October 19? Don’t worry. Register now and we’ll send you the replay link to watch at your convenience.ADHD brings with it strong emotions — but few tools for managing those emotions in ways that feel good. Your ADHD brain, with its now vs.

not-now orientation, may not register feelings simmering under the surface, so when the pressure builds and those emotions demand attention, the dam bursts. Your brain becomes suddenly flooded and you begin thrashing around trying to keep your head above water.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.In this webinar, Dr.

Sharon Saline will introduce tools from cognitive behavioral therapy, internal family systems, brain science, and mindfulness to help you discover how to work with your triggers, make intentional choices about words and actions, collaborate on recovering from blow-ups, and make meaningful amends. You will learn how to distinguish between issues that are true emergencies and those that may seem critical but don’t require an immediate response. She will help you build skills that increase body-based awareness, employ neutral language to express your feelings and thoughts, and practice compassion toward yourself and others during the most taxing times.
