Fear and Self-Awareness: The Mind’s Mirror
Mirror, mirror on the wall, what is scary about it all? Self-awareness is very much a 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 of self-awareness? In this webinar, ADHD coach Jeff Copper will review Dr. Russell Barkley’s ADHD construct in the context of executive function. He’ll 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, what is needed to be more self-aware, and why you might be resisting unbiased introspection. If you have ADHD and understand ADHD but still struggle, this webinar could provide the insight you need to move forward.
