ADHD: Character Strengths and Who You Are

ADHD Education | David Giwerc

What should you do if you have ADHD? The answer is often revealed by understanding who you are. In this episode of Attention Talk Radio, ADHD coach Jeff Copper interviews master certified coach David Giwerc, MCAC, MCC, and Founder and President of ADD Coach Academy.

Jeff identifies what he attends to when he's coaching people to help them understand who they are and what they are all about.

David talks about how he uses character strengths to help individuals do the same.

The patient may leave with an appropriate ADHD medication regimen, but many other critical problems related to the diagnosis may remain unaddressed.
