ADHD is a neurobiological condition that even in the presence of best intentions has a significant impact on a person's ability to plan and follow through on tasks and projects.  People who have this condition are often very creative, passionate and intelligent, but unable to live up to expectations of themselves or of others.    Typical motivators for getting things done such as degree of importance, rewards or consequences don’t work for the ADHD person’s “interest based” nervous system. This experience has been even more challenged by the stress of the pandemic. In this class you will learn how ADHD shows up, the brain challenges that underlie it and what can be employed to get things done.

We all become attached to possessions. We think some things may be useful someday, we find them aesthetically pleasing or they hold sentimental memories. It could also be that we are afraid to let go. Eventually some of these possessions become a burden. In this class we will explore patterns and behaviors and present alternative perspectives and logistical solutions to facilitate the de-cluttering process.
