Rethinking Adult ADHD: Lessons from “Procrastivity” and Self-Mistrust

Rethinking Adult ADHD: Lessons from “Procrastivity” and Self-Mistrust with Russell Ramsay

“Procrastivity” is a particular type of procrastination. It involves avoiding a high-priority task by doing something else that is productive, but not as urgent or important, which is ultimately self-defeating. However, “procrastivity” tasks offer clues for reducing procrastination on priority tasks that are particularly useful for adults with ADHD. Similarly, even though no one “thinks” themself into adult ADHD, living with ADHD in adulthood affects thoughts in important ways. Dr. Russell Ramsay will review important lessons learned from “procrastivity” and outline insights about the role of thoughts and beliefs in managing ADHD in adulthood, which are important themes in his most recent book, “Rethinking Adult ADHD: Helping Clients Turn Intentions Into Actions.”
