With Dr. Ari Tuckman, PsyD, MBA
Monday, October 7, 2013 2:00pm – 4:00pm EDT

Have you ever walked into a room and completely forgotten why you went there in the first place? How often do you lose your car keys, forget an item at the store, or miss a birthday? Adults with ADHD often have trouble remembering what they need to remember! In order to improve your memory, you must also improve your attention. In this Master Class, Psychologist Dr. Ari Tuckman will explain why it is that your memory is only as good as your attention, and offer practical strategies for strengthening both.

In this Master Class, you’ll:

  1. Learn what attention really is, and how it works
  2. Understand why improving your attention leads to a stronger memory
  3. Investigate how memories are formed and retrieved, and learn how to strengthen both
  4. Explore the difference between long term memory, working memory, and prospective memory, and how you use each in daily life
  5. Obtain strategies and techniques that will help you improve your ability to remember to do things
