Understanding RSD alongside ADHD with Marcy Caldwell

By Kate Moryoussef

Emotional dysregulation and Rejection Sensitivity Dysphoria (RSD) are two of the most challenging elements of ADHD, yet it's often not flagged up when we first learn about ADHD.

In this week's episode, Kate talks to Marcy Caldwell, a clinical psychologist and passionate ADHD advocate based in Philadelphia, PA. Marcy is the founder of ADDept.org, a blog and digital resource helping adults with ADHD create a life that works for, not against, their brains.

During today's episode, Kate and Marcy speak about:
