ADHD-informed financial therapists are uniquely poised to help adults with ADHD change how they think, feel, and behave around finances. Financial therapists, in general, have become increasingly cognizant of the need to tailor their interventions to clients’ unique characteristics and needs, including forms of neurodiversity such as ADHD. This presentation will help financial therapists become informed about ADHD-associated research, theory, and interventions that they can use to improve their work with clients with ADHD.
