“Deficient Emotional Self-Regulation: The Overlooked ADHD Symptom That Impacts Everything” [Video Replay & Podcast #369]

Episode Description


ADHD is generally thought to be a dysfunction of inattention, impulsivity, and/or hyperactivity. However, from the e-newsletter of the first scientific papers on ADHD in 1798 until the 1970s, emotion was incorporated in the conceptualization of the dysfunction. Though emotional dysregulation used to be excluded from the DSM-2 access for ADHD, analysis presentations that emotional impulsiveness and deficient emotional self-regulation (DESR) — the inability to keep watch over responses to sure emotions and to steer clear of overreacting to lifestyles eventualities — are an integral a part of ADHD.

Although DESR is excluded from the DSM-5 diagnostic criteria for ADHD, it has severe unwanted side effects on an individual’s daily functioning — everything from a better risk of having a automotive accident to by no means being married to having a lower quality of lifestyles. In addition, DESR may worsen different ADHD symptoms and plays a part in numerous comorbid disorders, particularly oppositional defiant disorder. Dr. Barkley will speak about methods to decide which aspects of emotional dysregulation stem from ADHD or a comorbid condition. He may also outline the best technique to diagnosing and treating DESR.

In this webinar, you are going to learn:

  • The causes and results of deficient emotional self-regulation on ADHD
  • Why positive comorbid disorders comparable to ODD could also be rooted in DESR
  • How emotional dysregulation increases the dangers of impairments all over maturity
  • Effective tactics to diagnose and treat DESR
