Transforming ADHD: Simple, Effective Attention and Action Regulation Skills to Help You Focus and Succeed (Paperback)
Are you ready to be the person you want to be? If you have adult attention de?cit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), accomplishing everyday tasks like paying bills, getting to a meeting on time, or simply buying groceries can be extremely difficult. At the end of the day, you may feel frustrated and unfocused, and life may seem unmanageable. So, how can you move past the constant forgetfulness, recurring mistakes, disorganization, distractibility, and restlessness that keep you from being your very best? Transforming ADHD offers a breakthrough, scientifically-grounded approach to attention and action regulation skills and strategies. Looking at ADHD through the latest research and the broad perspective of interpersonal neurobiology (IPNB)--a model that views one's mind, brain, body, and relationships as intimately connected--you'll discover how to work with your brain instead of against it, and transform the way you live your life. Using the practical exercises, tools, and techniques presented, you'll learn how to effectively direct your attention and motivate yourself to action so you can move toward the life you want.
