Developing a Collaborative Relationship with Your Clinician Is Critical to Managing ADHD
We’re welcoming Black Girl, Lost Keys blog creator, René Brooks, to Distraction as our guest host for ADHD Awareness Month! Today she is joined by Inger Shaye Colzie, a psychotherapist and ADHD leadership coach, for a conversation about how to work in conjunction with your therapist, psychiatrist or other healthcare provider so you can actually make progress and move forward. They also talk about how to navigate “the ADHD conversation” with your family and why you don’t necessarily have to tell them anything.
Like our guest host René, Inger Shaye was diagnosed with ADHD as an adult, and was even a therapist for 15 years before being diagnosed herself. They talk about how the lack of ADHD education for professionals affects Black women and children in particular, as they are much less likely to be diagnosed.
