Are you ready to look at adult ADHD in a completely different way? 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.

Adult attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) can make even simple everyday tasks like paying bills or getting groceries extremely difficult. At the end of the day, you may feel unfocused, and life may seem unmanageable. However, this struggle isn't the result of an inability to pay attention, as is so widely believed. Studies now show that ADHD results from an inability to maintain attentiveness.

Adults with ADHD can and often do focus on things they enjoy, but have trouble focusing on things that aren't as interesting to them. More and more, experts are acknowledging that, rather than a deficit of attention, ADHD is really about adjusting attention between hyperfocusing and underfocusing.

Looking at ADHD through the framework of IPNB a model that see s one s mind, brain, body, and relationships as intimately connected you ll discover how to rewire your brain for better attention regulation and overall well-being.

With the research-based exercises, tools, and techniques in this book, you ll learn how to effectively manage your attention so you can focus on what it is you need to do and do it well.

"As someone who has had the privilege of having a front row seat to witness Greg Crosby lead workshops for attorneys with ADHD, I anticipated that this book that he partnered with Tonya Lippert to produce would be a solid, research-based resource. It has exceeded my positive expectations. It is written in a clear and efficient style. Their guiding metaphor of flashing lights and guiding lights provided a great focus or lens for the research-based strategies and tools they offer. I appreciated how they were able to relate and reinforce material and tools which they introduced at the start of the book with the material and tools that they followed with. I believe that the population which I work with, attorneys, will find this book to be a helpful and easy-to-digest resource."
