"An expert in ADHD Coaching, Dr. Hurley will present 'Why Connect Self Compassion to Willpower? What Neuroscience Can Do for the Adult with ADHD,'" representatives with ADDA said in the release.

"More than 8 million adults in the United States live with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (AD/HD, also known as ADHD and ADD)," according to the release. "A person is diagnosed with ADHD when certain characteristic behaviors are displayed over a long period of time such as distractibility, impulsivity and hyperactivity. Although ADHD is a lifelong genetic difference usually first identified in childhood, it is sometimes only diagnosed in adulthood."
