Do you rule the realm of disorganization, clutter, and chaos? Are you constantly battling to get things done? Are you ready to give up and toss your day planner into the dungeon (otherwise known as your closet)? If so, you might just be The Queen of Distraction. And whether or not you’ve been formally diagnosed with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), you probably already know that something’s got to give.
The Queen of Distraction presents practical skills to help women with ADHD achieve focus and balance in all areas of life, whether it’s at home, at work, or in relationships. Psychotherapist Terry Matlen delves into the feminine side of ADHD—the elements of this condition that are particular to women, such as: relationships, skin sensitivities, meal-planning, parenting, and dealing with out-of-control hormones. In addition, the book offers helpful tips and strategies to get your symptoms under control, and outlines a number of effective treatment options for you to pursue.
From getting dressed in the morning, to making it to a job interview, to planning dinner—sometimes just getting through the day can be an ordeal for a woman with ADHD. If you’ve been accused of getting lost in your own world, maybe it’s time to make a change. If you’re ready to start getting organized and stop leaving your groceries in the car, this book can help. It’s more than just a survival guide; it’s an ADHD how-to to help you thrive!

Ottawa, Ontario – Children who begin using substances while their brain is still rapidly developing can become addicted much faster than an adult, sometimes as quick as six months depending on the substance. According to the Canadian Alcohol and Drug Use Monitoring Survey, youths 15 to 24 years old have the highest self-reported use of illicit substances compared to other Canadians and are approximately five times more likely to report harm because of drug use.
A child struggling with addiction can’t be expected to navigate their way through these challenges by themselves. It’s a family process. Shontelle Prokipcak is a registered social worker who has been providing mental health and addiction services for children, youth, young adults and their families in the Ottawa Region for over 14 years. Shontelle has extensive training and experience in counseling, crisis management, trauma, victim assistance, addiction issues and treatment, as well as youth conduct disorders.
“I collaborate with schools and the family doctor and the families themselves, even grandparents, so everyone is working together,” says Shontelle. “I try to get everybody on board with my treatment plan because we have better outcomes from that kind of collaboration.”
Shontelle's expertise is working with children, youth and families who have challenges at home or in the community and struggle with anxiety and depression, behavioral problems and addiction.
“Kids don’t know how to regulate their emotions because they’ve been using substances to do that,” explains Shontelle. “We work on concrete skills for the kids to use to deal with stress.”

SPECIAL TOPIC Night - "Child Abuse, Trauma and 12-Step Recovery" - STEP 11 - SCAN host Bill Murray will be joined by special guest co-host Rivka Edery, MSW, LCSW, from NYC, author of the book “Trauma and Transformation: A 12-Step Guide." Bill founded the recently launched Adult Survivors of Child Abuse Anonymous (ASCAA). Together they will lead tonight's discussion on STEP 11: "Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out." Step Eleven is the daily practice and experience of deepening your awareness of your Higher Power through prayer and meditation. You are capable of prayer and meditation, regardless of your background or history. If you set aside the time daily, you can reach for whatever you believe is greater than, deeper than, or beyond yourself. Step Eleven also assumes that by now you have a conscious awareness of your Higher Power, and you are drawn to deepening that connection. ~~ A child abuse survivor herself, Rivka Edery is grateful for the spiritual recovery she found in the 12 Steps of AA. She's been active in the 12 Step community for over 17 years. Bill Murray credits his 30 plus years of recovery to the spiritual power of the 12 Step program, too. ~~ Join us every two weeks to further examine a 12 Step approach to recovery from abuse. Next show we'll address STEP 12. ~~ Please see our web page at: www.NAASCA.org/Trauma-12Step or write to Rivka at: firstname.lastname@example.org
