The Trouble with Normal: My ADHD the Zebra | Emily Anhalt

Brilliance is absent without the presence of darkness, no matter where you are or what you do, strive to be great in spite of your circumstances. As you listen to Emily’s talk, reflect on what you believe it takes to be successful – What are the things that give you strength? What are the things that hold you back? Emily completed her doctoral dissertation on Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and Success Without the Use of Medication, spending two years interviewing, transcribing, coding, analyzing, and writing about the ways in which certain people feel their ADHD has contributed to their occupational and financial success. Her current life crusade is about making psychotherapy more accessible and less stigmatized in our society.
