Did you know that 25-40% of people with AD/HD also have an anxiety disorder? One consequence of having anxiety along with AD/HD is that the anxiety can exacerbate the concentration problems and impulse control that are central to AD/HD. Not only that, but people with anxiety often report chronic worry, along with a host of physical symptoms including abdominal distress, muscle tension, and occasional heart palpitations. The symptoms can quickly intensify to the point where one senses an ill-defined, yet intense fear of impending doom.
This presentation will teach a variety of self-help techniques that children and adults with AD/HD and anxiety can use to lower anxiety, manage their emotional responses, and navigate their lives from a place of calm and control. For those with AD/HD, decreased anxiety can lead to increased productivity.
