Dealing with Phone Anxiety and ADHD
Telephone anxiety is its own special breed of Social Phobia. As such, it brings a raft of psychological and behavioral baggage that is not specifically part of the ADHD catalog. Throw ADHD into the mix and you have a new concoction, one that celebrates the fear of navigating the phone with the distraction and rejection sensitivity that we’ve all come to know and love.
This week on the show, Nikki and Pete are kicking off a series on communication and starting with a tool that frustrates many: the phone. From addressing social phobia to building and overcoming the fear hierarchy, we’re all about building a new relationship with the phone today… and maybe even conquering your voicemail!
