Regulating Our ADHD Emotions with Dr Tamara Rosier - Revisit

Regulating Our ADHD Emotions with Dr Tamara Rosier - Revisit

By Kate Moryoussef

With ADHD, it can be difficult to regulate our big emotions and feel calm, with everyday triggers causing us to feel dysregulated. We can see this show up in young children, but it can be shameful and guilt-inducing when we're adults. This week’s guest is Dr Tamara Rosier, author of one of my favourite ADHD books, Your Brain's Not Broken.

Dr Tamara has been a college administrator, a professor, a leadership consultant, a high school teacher, a national public speaker, and an ADHD coach. Through those adventures, she has developed valuable insight into ADHD and how it affects one’s life. As founder of the ADHD Center of West Michigan, she helps individuals, parents, and families develop an understanding and learn practical skills to live with ADHD effectively. Her book Your Brain’s Not Broken provides strategies for navigating the powerful, significant emotional aspect of ADHD healthily. 

During this week's episode, we spoke about
