August 14 Tom Holloway, Crucial Accountability Certified TrainerTools Presents: Tools for Change and Accountability
Please join us for a presentation from one of our newest members, Tom Holloway, will share with us “Tools for Change and Accountability” – some practical tools he has found helpful in navigating ADD and life. In those ADD moments when we (or someone around us) lets us down, can we handle it in a way that will get both good results and good relationships? Maybe we jumped to a conclusion and acted in haste, only to find out later that we had misunderstood. Maybe we (or they) missed a deadline or said “Yes” when the better answer was “No”. The presentation will begin with an overview of “InfluencerTM – the New Science of Leading Change”. Then we will dive into “Crucial AccountabilityTM – Tools for Resolving Broken Commitments, Violated Expectations and Bad Behavior.” Bring your questions for a lively discussion.

August 28 Yulia Rafailova, Executive Function & Parent Coach Presents: “Quiet your Inner Critic” Workshop: Combating Negative Self-Talk & Shame in ADHD
It is estimated that those with ADHD receive 20,000 more negative messages by age 12 than those without the condition. The repeated failure to meet expectations from parents, teachers, friends, bosses, and the world only reinforces these negative beliefs and continues the cycle. Sadly these beliefs often develop into a deeply-held critical view of ourselves as fundamentally different, flawed, and not as worthy of success and happiness as the other people around us.
The good news is that our inner critic and all our negative thoughts exist in our imagination. We have the power to choose what we believe about ourselves. This workshop is NOT about thinking positively, but about developing awareness and testing the truth of our thoughts and beliefs.
In this hands-on workshop, you’ll take stock of where your beliefs originate and which beliefs may be holding you back from achieving your potential. You will learn to use your most powerful tool (your imagination!) to silence your inner critic and reconnect with your inner cheerleader.
Bring these Materials: Participants should have a writing utensil (pencil/pen/marker) and paper – preferably a journal.
