Got Adult ADHD? Love someone who does (maybe even someone “in denial”)? Perhaps you are a therapist or physician who would like to learn more about Adult ADHD, especially as it can affect relationships. If you can get yourself to Ellicott City, MD, on Sept. 24 at 6:00 pm, you are in luck!
Banish thoughts of sitting in folding chairs in a drab lecture hall. Instead, picture delicious hot appetizers, cocktails and wine, an abundant surplus of good-humored company, and an entertaining-and-informed speaker at this second annual soiree sponsored by CHADD of Greater Baltimore. (While I’m a fan of all CHADD chapters — God bless their volunteering hearts – I must tell you: This is an extremely fun group.)

Last year, I had the good fortune to be the featured speaker (the photo to right shows the lovely ballroom setting), and if I weren’t 3,000 miles away, you can bet I’d be in the audience this time. This year’s speaker is psychologist Ari Tuckman, author of More Attention, Less Deficit. The title of his talk: “Make Love, Not War: A Light-Hearted Look at Making ADHD Relationships Work.”
Not only will you gain an opportunity to
- relax, mingle, and network with interesting people in the local ADHD community (including professionals),
- learn about Adult ADHD strategies for individuals and couples,
- enjoy that rare feeling of being in ballroom full of people who can relate to your challenges,
- have a fun night out in a beautiful setting with fun people. and
- meet and learn from Dr. Tuckman.
But you will also be supporting CHADD of Greater Baltimore‘s wide-ranging outreach. That includes local support groups and training (the chapter runs four parent support groups around the Beltway and one adult group in Linthicum, MD. Visit the link to learn more.) The chapter also contributes to national CHADD‘s Presidential Council initiatives, such as Parent to Parent and Teacher to Teacher training held online and in communities nationwide.
All this for the mere price of a co-pay with a therapist who might just waste your time when it comes to helping with ADHD. There is no risk here. There is only a great opportunity to learn and gain support in a beautiful setting with warm-hearted, good-humored people. — AND support these hard-working volunteers’ efforts to help others. (It might even be tax-deductible!)
