Transforming ADHD offers a radical, breakthrough approach based in attention regulation and interpersonal neurobiology (IPNB) to help you gain focus and freedom from your symptoms. If you have adult attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), accomplishing everyday tasks like paying bills, getting to a meeting on time, or simply buying groceries can be extremely difficult.

Transforming ADHD offers a breakthrough, scientifically grounded approach to attention and action regulation skills and strategies. Looking at ADHD through the latest research and the broad perspective of interpersonal neurobiology (IPNB)—a model that views one’s mind, brain, body, and relationships as intimately connected—you’ll discover how to work with your brain instead of against it, and transform the way you live your life. Using the practical exercises, tools, and techniques presented in this book, you’ll learn how to effectively direct your attention and motivate yourself to action so you can move toward the life you want.
