“Rewrite your ADHD Story: Healing the Past by Understanding Your ADHD Family History”

Laurie Dupar is a Psychiatric Mental-Health Nurse Practitioner, Registered Nurse, Patient Centered Care Nurse, Certified ADHD Coach, Nurse Practitioner at Coaching for ADHD, and the Director and Coach Trainer at the International ADHD Coach Training (IACT) Center.

From Laurie,
Family and genetic studies estimate a 25 – 90% chance of inheriting ADHD. This means it is highly likely that if you or your child has ADHD, the relational, behavioral and emotional patterns of ADHD extend in your family for generations. When misunderstood or undiagnosed, the negative impact, even trauma of the ADHD experience, gets transferred transgenerationally directly or indirectly. Healing, higher self-esteem, increased emotional health, resilience and even happiness is possible with a broader understanding of other family members’ ADHD. Reshape your current ADHD story by exploring your family’s past with me.
