Children and adults who have ADHD usually have a few activities for which they can focus and sustain effort quite well. Yet they have much difficulty in focusing and sustaining effort for most other activities, even activities they recognize as important. This webinar will describe why those with ADHD can focus well for those few tasks that really interest them, but struggle to mobilize similar focus and effort for most other tasks. Dr. Brown will also discuss how and why medications may improve such difficulties.


Presenter - Dr. Thomas Brown

Dr. Brown earned his Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology at Yale University and then served on the clinical faculty of the Dept. of Psychiatry at Yale School of Medicine for 20 years while operating a clinic in CT for children and adults with ADHD and related problems. Dr. Brown is now Adjunct Clinical Associate Professor of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences at the Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California and is an elected Fellow of the American Psychological Association. He has published 30 articles in professional journals and 5 books on ADHD. His most recent books are Smart, but Stuck: Emotions in Teens and Adults with ADHD; and Outside the Box: Rethinking ADD/ADHD in Children and Adults-A Practical Guide. His website is www.BrownADHDClinic.com.
