An Adult’s Guide to Fostering Friendships with ADHD
November 2 @ 12:00pm - 1:00pm CDT
Healthy friendships help people feel supported, provide a sense of belonging, and stave off loneliness. But for many neurodivergent adults, making and keeping friends is a lifelong challenge. They might overshare, struggle to fully listen, and experience social anxiety, all of which can lead to feelings of rejection. To try and avoid these feelings, many adults adopt people-pleasing behaviors or wall themselves off from others.
In this webinar, Caroline Maguire, M.Ed., will explain strategies to help adults with ADHD and co-existing conditions feel empowered, raise their levels of confidence, and understand the friendship strengths they have to offer. Learning how to stand up for yourself, set healthy boundaries, and speak from the heart are important skills in developing and maintaining friendships that are valued and healthy.
In this webinar, you will learn:
- Why neurodivergent adults often have a history of relationship struggles
- Why adults adopt people-pleasing behaviors and the consequences of these in friendships
- What healthy friendships look like and how to develop them
- How to identify when friendships aren’t healthy or equal
- How to be more authentic in your friendships
