I received this email today and I'm pretty sure it will be of wider interest. London's not at all handy for me, though :-/
I wanted to let you know about a special day long conference in London on Saturday 15th October, devoted specifically to adult ADHD. The conference is the "1st National UK Adult ADHD conference - Practical Responses to Adult ADHD" and hosted by ADDISS, the national charity for ADHD. The keynote presentation “ADHD across the Lifespan” will be given by Professor Eric Taylor, one of the leading experts in the UK on adult ADHD.
I will be following his talk with a presentation of my "New Working Model of ADHD" that attempts to tie together the many different traits and experiences of adult ADHD into a coherent perspective; then builds from this understanding to offer strategies, approaches and ground rules for managing your ADHD issues and developing your ADHD strengths. For a full description of the model please see my website here http://simplywellbeing.us1.list-manage.com/track/click?u=5bdce29695299c5f99ea9bbf3&id=79b46ea94a&e=b30fc81f0e
Other talks in the morning are “The Diagnosis of Adult ADHD as a specific Learning Difficulty” by Dr David Grant and “Living with ADHD as an Adult” an interview with Luke and Colin. In the afternoon there are three streams of break out sessions to chose from including:
o “Managing your ADHD in the Workplace” - Jo Todd
o “Survival Strategies for young adults with ADHD” - Linda Fox
o “Relating to ADHD (ADHD and Relationships)” - Andrew Lewis
o “Parenting your young adult with ADHD” - a networking session
o “Adult ADHD and how Coaching can help” - Chris Mclanachlan
o “Finding ways to unwind and manage your emotions” - Colin McGee
o “Women with ADHD, the challenges” - Dr Nikos Myttas
o “ADHD and ADDictions” - Dr Max Zoettl
The venue it the Directory of Social Change, 24 Stephenson Way, London NW1 2DP, very close to Euston Station. Cost for the very comprehensive program is £95 (if you are a member of ADDISS it's only £60).

If you cannot make it (apologies if you are receiving at some extended distance) then as a small consolation I intend to publish my very, very overdue newsletter soon in October. In my defence for the delay I have been busy establishing a new Adult ADHD Centre in London, see http://simplywellbeing.us1.list-manage.com/track/click?u=5bdce29695299c5f99ea9bbf3&id=3d439386c4&e=b30fc81f0e
moving the ever growing monthly "Tear & Share" Adult ADHD Support Group to Central London (attendances over 30 now) see: http://simplywellbeing.us1.list-manage1.com/track/click?u=5bdce29695299c5f99ea9bbf3&id=d86805a134&e=b30fc81f0e
failing to find any ADHD medication that helps me and coaching tens of amazing, funny, interesting and inspiring adults with ADHD. To be honest most of the delay however is just plain-old ADHD procrastination, too distracted by "Battlefield Bad Company 2" on my PlayStation!! Watch this space and be great to see you at the conference (book now so you don't forget!)....
