Workshop Presentation Summary

Self-awareness is very much part of executive function and an important factor in managing ADHD. Being self-aware and owning your ADHD is often the difference between those who struggle and those who thrive. Question is, what gets in the way self-awareness? In this workshop presentation, Jeff Copper reviews Dr. Russell Barkley's ADHD construct in the context of executive function. Jeff will talk about the conflicting relationship between emotional self-regulation and self-awareness to look at the problem beneath the problem as a means to create mindfulness of what is going on, and why you might be resisting unbiased introspection.

If you, your spouse and/or your child has ADHD, understand its challenges; but still struggle - this presentation may provide the insight you need to move forward by:

  1. Understanding the role emotions play when it comes to self-awareness.
  2. Realize to be self-aware that you must confront and question your thoughts, feelings, and beliefs that feel threatening.
  3. Recognize self-awareness feels threatening and the emotional side of the brain instinctively wants to fight back.
