October 1 @ 5:00 pm – 6:30 pm
Rejection Sensitive Dysphoria, known as RSD, is an intense emotional response triggered by the perception of rejection, criticism or failure. Join our talk to understand how RSD manifests for those with ADHD, and how to put safety measures in place to work on regulating your emotions. From identifying triggers, coping strategies and boundary setting, we aim to provide a space to heal and overcome RSD.
