When the Autopilot is Broken:

An innovative approach to understanding executive dysfunction, neurodivergence, and mental health


Renowned speaker, author, and licensed professional counselor KC Davis is partnering with Hamm Clinic to present her innovative philosophy around care tasks and mental health.

There are lots of reasons why care tasks may be difficult for a person: mental health struggles, chronic pain and illness, neurodivergence, trauma, seasons of life such as grief, postpartum, or small children, caretaking responsibilities, or lack of childhood modeling. Perhaps most paralyzing is the shame felt when one is unable to complete care tasks. Internalized messages of laziness and failure compound the feelings of overwhelm and make care tasks seem even more insurmountable.

KC’s approach reminds us that shame is the enemy of functioning. As shame and isolation increase, mental health plummets. Self-loathing sets in and motivation vanishes. The possibility of self-actualization, loving and connective relationships, and full life satisfaction… begins to feel miles away. This lively, interactive training will help you to better serve your clients of all kinds through transforming how you think about the most basic things we do each day.

This full-day training aimed at mental health professionals took place on Friday December 15, 2023 from 9:00 AM – 4:30 PM CST via Zoom.
