Riassunto: - See the Amazon.com listing for ADHD: A Path to Success for reviews of those who have been through treatment -- ,
Ten years after publishing his first book on ADHD, Dr. Lawrence Weathers with his wife Dr. Mary Weathers have written the sequel, ADHD: Drug-free and Doin Fine. Rather than a rewrite, it is Volume II. It captures new research and the experience of successfully treating hundreds of families and their ADHD children since publication of ADHD: A Path to Success. As volume I and II, they trace the development of an in-depth, refreshingly healthy understanding of what ADHD really is and how it can be successfully treated without drugs.
Most treatment of ADHD is unsuccessful because it is built on the misunderstanding that ADHD is a neurological, behavioral, learning and social defect, rather than an inefficient defense mechanism that helps the child cope in the short-term, but backfires in the long run.
You will learn about: 1. The real, non-pathological neurology of ADHD. 2. The four stages of Homework Help Hell, and how to resolve it. 3. Three ways parents try to get children to comply, and how two of them regularly fail. 4. Why sometimes the harder you work the worse the problem becomes. 5. The nine steps that lead to the development of ADHD. 6. The flawed logic of He can t... and why not to believe it. Learn how He can..... 7. Why many ADHD children also have learning disabilities, particularly in reading and math. 8. Why testing can make your child s problems worse. 9. How a child s ADHD can contribute to marital problems. 10. Why the most conscientious efforts to help can make problems worse if you do it from a Deficit rather than a Learning model understanding of the child s problems. 11. How to recapture the joy of parenting. 12. Drug-free treatment including detailed parenting instructions.
As a parent of an ADHD child, you may have been pressured by your child s school to put your child on medication. Perhaps you have bristled at that thought as more information comes to light about the negative side effects of medications for ADHD. Maybe you have even wondered if the something wrong with the child s brain theory is really an accurate description of your child. If so, this is the book for you.
In his first book, ADHD, A Path to Success, Dr. Weathers offered a revolutionary theory of how ADHD was, among other things, a short-term coping skill that backfired. In ADHD: Drug-free and Doin Fine, Dr. Lawrence Weathers goes well beyond the ideas presented in his first book to explain how parents and teachers can inadvertently stimulate the development of the very ADHD behaviors they are trying to cure. The book then gives concrete demonstrations of how parents and teachers changing behavior can change the child s behavior.
Through his careful observations from treating hundreds of ADHD children and their families in the ten years since he wrote his last book, he has been able to document repeated patterns in family interaction that demonstrate how ADHD has nothing to do with brain dysfunction and much to do with interaction patterns between adults and children. He expands on his original thesis of how ADHD behavior, as manifested in the classroom, is an attempt by the child to escape aversive experiences with learning school subjects. To anchor his observations in scientific research, he has gathered numerous research studies from many disciplines to support his theory of how ADHD works . In addition, he gives many case examples from his clinical practice of how children can go from coming into treatment showing great difficulty with school subjects to performing several grades ahead within a few hours of treatment. How this happens is explained both by the procedure he uses and what is happening within the child to cause changes to be made.
Lawrence Weathers is an ADHD kid made good. He earned a Ph.D. in child clinical psychology from Peabody College of Vanderbilt University in 1974. He is a Diplomate of the American Board of Medical Psychotherapy. Before moving to Spokane in 1978, he was Director of the Adolescent Unit at Central state Psychiatric Hospital in Nashville TN, Director of the Family and Children s Achievement Center in Miami FL, Director of the Adolescent Unit at the Florida Mental Health Institute, and later Professor and Director of Research and Evaluation at the Florida Mental Health Institute at the University of South Florida in Tampa, Florida.
Along with his numerous professional publications, this is his second book for the popular press. His background straddles psychology and engineering. In the late 60 s he was a system s engineer for IBM. Later he founded a company to develop software to score and interpret major personality and intelligence tests (MMPI & WISC/WAIS). In the late 80 s these software packages were sold worldwide.
His affection for technology goes back to his pre-teen days when he developed his first working fuel injection system that successfully ran on his father s pickup truck. As a teen, he put big engines in little cars (hot rods). After becoming a psychologist, he developed an electronic prompting device to speed psychotherapy and psychotherapeutic board games to structure inexpensive group therapy to treat large numbers of people inexpensively.
Since leaving the academic world, Dr. Weathers has worked in private practice with his psychologist wife, Mary. He has been working with children and families for more than 35 years. He and Mary chose Spokane because of their interests in back packing, hiking, mountaineering, skiing, and bicycling.
Mary Weathers earned a Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from the University of Miami in 1978. She worked as a psychologist for the State of Washington, as a behavior management consultant for community homes for the developmentally disabled, then on the admissions unit of Eastern State Hospital. She went into private practice in 1983 where she had a general practice as well as a specialty in working with eating disordered clients. She shares her husband Larry s interest in the outdoors as well as being an avid photographer.
