ADHD and Screen Addiction Treatment

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder is a challenge of self-regulation, meaning that the challenge of sometimes engaging attention and other times unengaging attention, much like an addiction or an addict's need to walk away. In this edition of Attention Talk Radio, ADHD coach Jeff Copper interviews Dr. Clifford Sussman (http://cliffordsussmanmd.com) on the treatment and challenges of working with those who have ADHD and screen addiction issues. If this speaks to you, this show promises to be very insightful to help you be self-aware and attack the problem head on.

ADHD and Screen Addiction: The Hard Part

This edition of Attention Talk Radio is a follow-up to part one in a series related to ADHD and screen addiction. In the first episode, we talked about the biology that places those with ADHD at higher risk for screen addiction. In this edition, we talk with Dr. Clifford Sussman (http://cliffordsussmanmd.com) about the issues that arise when you combine the challenges of ADHD, self-regulation, puberty, and the ever-growing requirements to interact with the world digitally. If the topic speaks to you, you will want to listen in to create self-awareness and understand the very real challenges at present in dealing with this challenge.
