Understanding Women with ADHD: A Guide for Professional Organizers
As chronic disorganization is a common manifestation of ADHD, professional organizers have a unique “front line” opportunity to support clients who present with signs of ADHD or already have a diagnosis.
This presentation will address chronic disorganization in women with ADHD, as well as ways in which professional organizers can best support clients with the condition. Attendees will leave with an understanding of ADHD based in the latest research and, more specifically, how the disorder uniquely impacts women.
Attendees will learn:
Dr. Michelle Frank is a licensed clinical psychologist specializing in providing diagnostic and treatment services to individuals with ADHD. She works in private practice in Ann Arbor, MI, and can be reached through her website: http://www.soldenfrank.com/
When not working directly with clients, Dr. Frank is committed to writing and speaking on issues of ADHD, neurodiversity, and empowerment. She is Vice President of the Attention Deficit Disorder Association and co-author of an upcoming book for women with ADHD entitled Untangled.

The Psychology of Letting Stuff Go: Helping Clients Who Struggle to Release
Many people struggle to part with their “stuff,” likely due to a combination of cultural and psychological factors.
This presentation coincides with the holiday season – which for many Americans has become the year’s greatest acquisition of stuff! – and will touch on many of the factors that make it difficult for individuals to let go of items and keep down on clutter. Focus will also be placed on how professional organizers can tailor their approach based on these factors when working with clients. Specifically, attendees will learn:
