Description

Once you accept your ADHD, it doesn’t mean others will. Facing The World tackles one of the most difficult challenges ADHDers have—other people! This video gives you a simple, proven strategy to silence the critics, disarm the know-it-alls, and educate those who really do want to help.

Have you ever felt shut down by well-meaning people who tell you ADHD isn’t real?
“It’s bad parenting.” “It’s a scam made up by doctors.” “I don’t believe in it.” How do you protect yourself, while not turning everyone else into the enemy? Find out what works, and what doesn’t, with your genial host and fellow ADHDer, Rick Green.

  • Discover the unconscious psychological reasons that spur others to dismiss, deny, and subvert your progress.
  • Lose the shame and fear of talking to people about your ADHD through a series of simple, guided, ‘practice’ conversations.
  • Transform denial into acceptance and understanding, and even turn your harshest critics into your most powerful advocates!

No more arguing or defending. Facing the World helps you leave behind the stigma of ADHD and emerge from conversations unscathed, undaunted, and more confident than ever!

    Great Video with lots of good advice on how to have difficult conversations with difficult people about ADD and come away with your dignity intact and their level of awareness raised. I can see watching this over and over throughout the years whenever I meet one of these deniers who make me doubt myself.

    I especially recommend this video to others who feel pressured or dismissed by other people when it comes to disclosing one’s ADHD condition. It’s very entertaining and well organized, and easy to remember many of the strategies in just the first viewing.

    One thing I benefitted from the most: The key to persuading others is emotional intelligence. It’s not about trying to battle and “defeat” someone, but treating someone as a potential ally. That means knowing how to keep your own emotions in check when confronted with the stigma, show that you can understand the other person’s opinion, and be able to read them well enough so you know what’s most likely to persuade them, so you can have a consensus and work from there. You’re not going to convince everybody, but you’ll also learn the importance of finding people who will love and accept you.

    There is one problem I caught, however. Some of the counter-argument examples that Rick demonstrates aren’t just speaking generally without citing specific studies or evidence. In one example, simply responding to a naysayer that no parents would rather give their kid a pill? I’m highly doubtful of that one, myself. I think this video could have really benefitted us with actually pointing to, or citing some, specific research. (That could actually make for a very nice TotallyADD link bundle.) That would balance the “proof” side with social thinking much better.
