Over the years I have become increasingly aware that many of my adult ADHD clients have experienced shame in their lives. I have seen it expressed in many ways, usually as toxic reactions to past external judgment, and then turning that judgment on oneself. In some cases, depression, guilt and shame can set in and become so engulfing that mental health and well being are threatened. This webinar will focus on the origins of toxic shame and guilt and how they can be manifested in adults with ADHD. We will also cover steps that a person can take to decrease the intensity of these internal feelings and hopefully to overcome them.
