Emotional Impulsivity

Presentation Date:  Monday, February 6th    |     Presentation Time: 4:45 pm EST

Emotional Impulsivity is often part of the ADHD “picture” in women with ADHD. I will discuss how that relates to internal and external states (lashing out, short fuse, over-reactivity, hypersensitivities, etc.), how it plays out in every day life, and what women with ADHD can do to understand this and what they can do about it.
