Maladaptive Daydreaming vs ADHD

Date: July 20 at 12:00pm

12:00 pm CT / 11:00 am MT

Maladaptive daydreaming, sometimes called daydreaming disorder, describes the experience of becoming immersed in elaborate fantasies that lure an individual away from their day-to-day responsibilities for hours at a time. The daydreaming is so vivid and interesting that it becomes addictive. Often, real-life relationships and obligations are neglected as a result.

Maladaptive daydreaming is different from the mind-wandering typically experienced by people with ADHD, and it is rapidly gaining recognition in the scientific arena. Maladaptive dreaming is not yet a psychiatric diagnosis.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • How maladaptive daydreaming is defined and experienced
  • About the link between maladaptive daydreaming and ADHD
  • About the differences between maladaptive daydreaming and ADHD and mind-wandering
  • How mental health clinicians can assess maladaptive daydreaming and treatment implications
