Reduce your anxiety: What to do when worrying takes over and how to keep it in check
Part of the ADDA Webinar Series
Living in a world that’s increasingly unpredictable and with COVID-19 affecting all aspects of our lives, people are more anxious than ever before. For folks living with ADHD, worry and fear can increase their agitation, distractedness, and impulsivity and make things seem worse than they are. Dr. Saline, author of “What your ADHD child wishes you knew: Working together to empower kids in school and life” and “The ADHD Solution Deck,” discusses how anxiety works and what you can do to manage it more effectively. Rather than continuing to feel driven by your anxiety, she’ll explain why your attempts at reassurance and rationalization make things worse and how to talk back to your worries instead. She’ll show you how to change your relationship to worry and avoid the pitfalls of negative thinking. You will learn practical, helpful techniques for reducing anxiety, tolerating uncertainty and creating alternative responses to ‘what ifs’. When folks with ADHD gain these skills, they bounce back from issues with more confidence and much less worry.
