Even though emotions are not a part of the diagnostic criteria for ADHD in the DSM-5, researchers agree that emotions are as much a part of ADHD as attention. In this episode of Attention Talk Radio, we are interviewing clinical psychologist Dr. Thomas E. Brown (www.DrThomasEBrown.com) around why those with ADHD struggle so much with emotions, the role emotions play in executive functioning, the impact of emotions on working memory, and how emotions impact the “Google” search function in our brain. We also ask him to specifically use the concept of erectile dysfunction as a metaphor to help understand the chemical dynamics of the brain. Dr. Brown is an ADHD thought leader. He is articulate and on point. The only reason to miss this show is if you are in crisis or someone in your family is giving birth! That’s right. The content is that good!
