Rejection Sensitive Dysphoria (RSD) Update – 2023

with William Dodson, M.D.


“Rejection Sensitive Dysphoria” is a term that flooded the internet and the psychiatrist who introduced it is Dr. William Dodson. In this session, he shares his clinical experience with thousands of ADHD patients who endure this upsetting and soul-crushing experience again and again. And he offers options for easing the pain of having a “thin skin” when insults and criticism are taken personally. Well worth your time. With slides.
