ADHD Late Diagnosis Process Group for Women and Non-binary People

Process and Support Group

Overview

This group is meant to be a safe space for adult women, non-binary people, and other marginalized genders (20+) who’ve recognized their ADHD later in life. Each participant has either received an ADHD diagnosis as an adult, OR they are currently exploring ADHD. Official diagnosis isn't required.

Struggling with ADHD can feel isolating and shameful. Group will include processing the grief, pain, and frustrations of life prior to an ADHD diagnosis, as well as embracing self-acceptance and personal growth through communal empowerment.

Purpose and Goals of this group

Led by a fellow late-diagnosed ADHDer, each session will introduce a topic, followed by a related self-reflective exercise, and then a group discussion and processing. Participants will be provided clinical insights, tools, and additional resources to encourage further self exploration of topics. However, the facilitator's primary role is to promote discussion and manage time.

Topics will include but are not limited to:

  • Processing your ADHD diagnosis as an adult
  • Exploring shame, grief, and anger
  • Discussing ADHD with loved ones
  • Advocating for your neurodivergent needs
  • Understanding executive dysfunction
  • Building emotional regulation skills.
