with Sharon Saline, Psy.D.
Whether you have ADHD or not, we all have those moments when the switch flips and we are overcome by frustration, anger and hurt with our partners. You both may say or do things you later regret and struggle to find the authentic love and compassion you have for each other. In this session. Dr. Sharon Saline, author, clinician, speaker and consultant, will show you how to manage intense feelings more effectively based on her 5C’s approach. She’ll teach you how to improve self-awareness and notice the signals of dysregulation, how to set clear boundaries and take pre-planned breaks to settle down, and, most importantly, how to talk about hot topics without blame and reactivity.
