Are you aware that a person's emotions affect his sense of motivation?

Dr. Thomas E. Brown

Did you know that ADHD affects a person's emotional regulation?

The National Resource Center on ADHD’s Ask the Expert Webinar Series is taking an in-depth look at emotions and motivation in people affected by ADHD this March. Renown researcher and author Dr. Thomas E. Brown will focus on how the disorder affects a person’s emotions and how emotions are expressed.

A person’s level of motivation is tied to his emotions where ADHD is concerned. Dr. Brown will discuss the interrelationship between emotions and motivation:

  • Emotional regulation and a person’s sense of motivation
  • Why getting started on a project can be difficult for someone affected by ADHD
  • How to take control of one’s emotions and motivation
