Unwrapping the Gifts: A Strength-Based Approach to Treating Adult ADHD - Edward (Ned) Hallowell, M.D., Adult and Child Psychiatrist; Founder of the Hallowell Centers; Learning Differences Expert; Co-author of 'Driven to Distraction' and 'Answers to Distraction'
Dr. Hallowell will introduce the audience to the world of ADHD and its impact on Adults. He will discuss how to diagnose attention deficit disorder in adults, which should include identification of talents and strengths. He will review the role of medication in treating ADHD, address the pros and cons of medication and explore the side effects as well as the possible benefits of various medications now available. He will review the guidelines to finding the right dose of the right medication. Dr. Hallowell will also discuss how to treat ADHD without medication, focusing on a strength-based approach.
Most importantly, having both ADD and dyslexia himself, Dr. Hallowell will introduce participants to the many facets of the world of ADHD by discussing the human experience of ADHD, the impact of ADHD on the family, and how his strength-based approach focuses on finding and developing the talents embedded in ADHD—all in the aim of his life-long goal: to help people master the power of ADHD while avoiding its pitfalls.
Dr. Hallowell is considered to be one of the foremost experts on the topic of ADHD. He is the co-author, with Dr. John Ratey, of Driven To Distraction, and Answers To Distraction, which have sold more than a million copies. In 2005, Drs. Hallowell and Ratey released their much-awaited third book on ADHD, Delivered From Distraction. “Delivered” provides updated information on the treatment of ADHD and more on adult ADHD.
