TADD 2018 – Untangling – How to Separate Out Your Core Sense of Self From Your Brain Based Challenges

We’ve got an excellent “TADD” Talk for you today! As part of ADHD Awareness Month and our special activities, ADDA has created TADD Talks, where we’ll be Talking about ADD every day the entire month of October!

In today’s TADD talk, Sari Solden discusses “Untangling – How to Separate Out Your Core Sense of Self From Your Brain Based Challenges

She will talk about the therapeutic process we call “untangling,” in which women are helped to separate out their brain-based challenges from their core value and sense of self-worth.

Based on new book by Sari Solden, MS and Michelle Frank, PsyD, to be released in July 2019 by New Harbinger called A Radical Guide for Women with ADHD. This book presents their “radical” but simple idea that instead of trying to fix herself, the woman with ADHD can simply learn to be herself!

This will be subject of two sessions at the Annual 2018 International ADHD Conference in St. Louis, MO with Sari Solden and Michelle Frank. One of the sessions will be for mental health pros and the other one for women with ADHD.


And if you enjoyed today’s TADD Talk, you’ll want to learn more about what Sari has to offer.
