We are all tired of COVID, yet there is a real worry that adults with ADHD, whose social community has been disrupted, might be some of the worst affected by the pandemic. Romantic relationships are often strained and boredom, lack of impulse control and difficulty managing behaviors and emotions may be taking its toll on family members too.
In this webinar, Caroline Maguire, M.Ed., ACCG, PCC, reveals why now is the time to build emotional intelligence and social emotional wellness. Participants will come to understand how to make connections in an all too unfamiliar world. She will explain what it means to be a friend, how to overcome hesitancy and reach out to others in a virtual or in-person format, how to interpret body language and facial expressions, when to share and when not to share, how much to share and much more. Social and emotional wellness includes the skills of self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship building and maintenance, responsible decision-making, and more. These skills can be learned at any age.
- Explore practical tactics to overcoming self-regulation challenges
- Discover strategies to reach out to new or potential friends during COVID
- Engage in self-discover to recognize your personal road blocks to connection and build strategies to work around them
