It’s ADHD Awareness Month. The theme is “ADHD: Understanding A Shared Experience.” According to Dr. Russell Barkley, emotional self-regulation is a core component of ADHD. In this episode of Attention Talk Radio, ADHD and attention coach Jeff Copper (www.digcoaching.com) shares a highly impassioned conversation with Stacey who expresses her deepest emotions, her anger, her passion. This powerful experience starts off relatively low and then escalates to a crescendo of emotion so we can almost feel the tension in her body. If you’ve ever witnessed the same phenomenon, felt that rush of adrenaline or that flooding feeling in the pit of your stomach, listen how Stacey learned to use her automatic emotional responses as triggers to pause and down-regulate the emotional frenzy.
