In this 150-minute program, Sari Solden, a psychotherapist, writer, and internationally known pioneer in the field of women with Attention Deficit Disorder, explores the unique way in which women experience life with ADHD. In her poetic and warm style, Sari poignantly leads the listener through the shame and hiding that accompanies these challenges for women who often have difficulty meeting society's role expectations.
Sharing her own stories and real-life experiences of women with ADHD, Sari helps women feel relief and hope as they begin to dismantle their negative self images, accept themselves as unique instead of defective, and move toward a life of meaning.
Adapted from her groundbreaking book Women with Attention Deficit Disorder, Sari's reading is enhanced by original jazz and by actors who bring the vignettes of the book to life in powerful ways that underscore the emotions felt by these women. As a result, partners and families are able to understand the struggle these women face as they fight to find a way to use their gifts and strengths.
Every year, millions of withdrawn little girls and chronically overwhelmed women go undiagnosed with ADHD, because they don't fit the stereotypical profile: they're not fast-talking or hyperactive and they are not male.
Sari's book revealed that ADHD affects just as many women as men, and that the resulting depression, disorganization, shyness, underachievement, and inactivity, are ways to identify many women with ADHD. Join the hundreds of thousands of women around the world who have experienced Sari's inspiring messages, as she, in a very personal way, leads women on the journey from hiding to embracing who they are. Solden empowers these women to find the courage to be themselves and take control by restructuring their lives, renegotiating relationships, and redefining their self-images.
