Windows into the A.D.D. Mind: Understanding and Treating Attention Deficit Disorders in the Everyday Lives of Children, Adolescents and Adul
Until recently, A.D.D. was thought to be a disorder of diet, will power, or poor upbringing. Using powerful, new brain imaging studies, Dr. Amen explains A.D.D. and gives very clear prescriptions on what to do about it, form childhood through adulthood. This book discusses Dr. Amen’s experience in diagnosing and treating over 6,000 children, teenagers, and adults with ADD. The book will illustrate what ADD ‘looks like’ from the fetus in the womb to childhood, though adolescence into adult life. ‘Real Stories’ will illustrate the different stages of ADD, exploring the potential negative impact ADD has on relationships, families, schools, work, and self-esteem. The impact of a sophisticated brain imaging study called SPECT (single photon emission computed tomography) will be discussed in relationship to ADD. The treatment protocols for ADD that Dr. Amen’s uses day-to-day in his office will be given. This book is not meant to be an exhaustive review of ADD, rather to help understand the nature of ADD, how it can affect a person’s daily functioning, its causes, and the major components of effective treatment.
