We think of ADHD as a deficit of attention. As we learn more and more, we find it's more an issue of self-regulation. Many episodes on Attention Talk Radio have highlighted the role working memory plays in ADHD. In this episode, ADHD coach Jeff Copper ( interviews Dr. John Eastwood. They have an open and frank conversation about thinking, mental effort, and the challenges posed to those with ADHD, as well as the urge to escape. With effortful thinking, the idea is to put a spotlight on understanding that it's not always a focus problem. Often, focusing on making the thinking part easier will make it easier to self-regulate. If you have ADHD and struggle with executive functioning, this is a show you won't want to miss.
