In recent years there has been a dramatic rise in the numbers of children diagnosed with ADHD. Increasingly, these children are prescribed drugs which are seen as the cure and are often relied on as the only form of treatment. This medical diagnosis of ADHD is grounded in a neuropsychological approach, but what of the broader developmental, community and family issues? In this book, the authors argue that to gain a more thorough understanding of this complex problem, a much broader and more balanced approach should be taken in the diagnosis and treatment of the child.;Their fresh analysis acknowledges that external factors such as the quality of long-term childcare facilities, the frenetic pace of modern life, social disadvantage and emotional disruption caused by divorce and family disunity all contribute to the psychological functioning of the child. Direct links are made between these issues and the child's ability to learn, concentrate and self-regulate behaviour.;Drawing on many years experience working with children and their families, the authors have included clinical case examples and practical recommendations for working in partnership with parents and children with behavioural and attention problems. The book is intended for teachers, psychologists, therapists, childcare workers, counsellors, social workers and parents who want a deeper understanding of children with attention and behaviour problems.

With the number of children diagnosed with ADHD increasing each year, this book suggests that doctors and parents too often rely on drugs without discussing long-term effects or treating contributing factors. This fresh analysis acknowledges that external factors such as the quality of long-term childcare facilities, the frenetic pace of modern life, social disadvantage, and emotional disruption caused by divorce and family disunity all contribute to children's ability to learn, concentrate, and self-regulate behavior. Case studies and practical recommendations for working in partnership with parents and children with behavioral and attention problems are included. Beneficial for teachers, psychologists, therapists, childcare workers, counselors, social workers, and parents, this resource provides a deeper understanding of children with attention and behavior problems.

The recent dramatic rise in the number of children diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder - ADHD - has triggered the increasing prescription of drugs that are seen as the cure' for the disorder, and are often relied on as the only form of treatment. This medical diagnosis focuses exclusively on pathology within the child. But what of the broader influences that can impact on a child's psychological health and affect his or her behaviour?Rethinking ADHDis an essential book for all of us who are trying to make sense of everything that bewilders and fascinates us about the phenomenon of ADHD. It draws its net wide, broadening our thinking beyond the realm of medicine and neurology to embrace as well psychodynamic, psychological and socio-cultural perspectives. In the midst of so much that is controversial about the nature and treatment of ADHD, this highly absorbing book takes a fair and well-balanced view of the knowledge that we have gained so far - in the interests of understanding the way children's minds and personalities develop to produce the kind of behaviour that for many of us becomes so problematic.'- Peter Wilson, Director of Youngminds, UKDrawing on many years of experience, the authors, all experts in the field, have included clinical case examples and practical recommendations for working in partnership with parents and children with behavioural attention problems. Rethinking ADHDis essential reading for teachers, psychologists, therapists, childcare workers, counselors, social workers and parents who want a deeper understanding of how to more comprehensively treat children with ADHD.
