Brought to you by a panel of SDPCA members and experts!
Executive Function is a set of mental processes that helps us get things done — but can be compromised. If you’ve had clients who have difficulty sticking to a plan, managing time, evaluating ideas, finishing work, or keeping track of multiple things at once, their Executive Function may be impaired.
Executive Function is really important because it helps people:
- Manage their time well
- Plan and organize work and home life
- Pay attention
- Remember details
- Take action and follow through
- Easily switch focus from one activity to another
Being overly stressed, depressed, learning disabilities, ADHD, or a lack of sleep, can lead to temporary or ongoing Executive Function difficulties. However, there are strategies and approaches to improve Executive Function and help to cope with these difficulties. In fact, Executive Function can be improved at any age!
During this interactive panel presentation, you will learn:
- How to help clients manage their focus and mental energy
- How social and emotional triggers can undermine a client’s capacity to succeed
- Tools that we can implement today to sharpen our Executive Function
