Previous Vancouver Adult ADD Support Group Meetings Notes
Return to The Vancouver Adult ADD Support Group Main Page
Here are notes from some of the meetings of my Vancouver Adult ADD Support Group. As an adult ADHD coach who has ADHD, I like to focus on the practical side of managing ADHD.
The Vancouver Adult ADD Support Group started up in June, 2003 but we didn't start posting notes of the meetings until August 2004.
Each meeting focuses on one specific adult ADHD problem. We do a warm up exercise, overview of the problem then
We do a group brainstorm on:
- Reasons why we ADDers have that problem.
- What specific things make the problem worse?
- What specific things make the problem better?
- Then we get into small groups and focus on creating a customized plan for ourselves on how to reduce that problem in one specific area of our lives.
If you have notes of meetings that aren't posted here, please email me them and I'll post them so others can read them.
