In this breakthrough guide to understanding, treating, and healing Attention Deficit Disorder, Dr. Gabor Maté, an adult with ADD and the father of three ADD children, shared the latest information on: · The external factors that trigger ADD · How to create an environment that promotes health and healing · Ritalin and other drugs · ADD adults …and much more Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) has quickly become a controversial topic in recent years. Whereas other books on the subject describe the condition as inherited, Dr. Maté believes that our social and emotional environments play a key role in both the cause of and cure for this condition. In Scattered, he describes the painful realities of ADD and its effect on children as well as on career and social paths in adults. While acknowledging that genetics may indeed play a part in predisposing a person toward ADD, Dr. Maté moves beyond that to focus on the things we can control: changes in environment, family dynamics, and parenting choices. He draws heavily on his own experience with the disorder, as both an ADD sufferer and the parent of three diagnosed children. Providing a thorough overview of ADD and its treatments, Scattered is essential and life-changing reading for the millions of ADD sufferers in North America today.

Rates of diagnosis of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) are skyrocketing, throughout America and the rest of the world. U.S. rates of youth diagnosis have increased 40% from just a decade ago. Adults with ADHD are now the fastest-growing segment of the population receiving diagnosis and medication. The disorder is painful and sometimes disabling for individuals and tremendously costly for society; yet, widespread misinformation, skepticism, and unanswered questions have jeopardized effective diagnosis and treatment. Researched and written by Stephen Hinshaw, an international expert on ADHD, and Katherine Ellison, a Pulitzer-Prize winning journalist and author, ADHD: What Everyone Needs to Know? is the go-to book for authoritative, current, accurate, and compelling information about the global ADHD epidemic. This book addresses questions such as: ? Is ADHD a genuine medical condition or a means of pathologizing active and exploratory behavior? ? Do medications for ADHD serve as needed treatments, or are they attempts at social control, designed to bolster profits of pharmaceutical firms? ? Has the ADHD label become a ruse by which parents can game the educational system for accommodations? ? How do symptoms and impairments related to ADHD differ between girls and women and boys and men? ? Why are ADHD medications often used as performance enhancers by college and high-school students? ADHD: What Everyone Needs to Know? clears the air of the most polarizing and misleading information that abounds, providing straight talk and sound guidelines for educators, policymakers, health professionals, parents, and the general public. It shows the reality of ADHD but does not ignore the forces that have pushed up rates of diagnosis to alarmingly high levels.

In Health Care Policy and Practice: A Biopsychosocial Perspective, Moniz and Gorin have updated their text to incorporate health care reform. The authors have also restructured the book to guide students through the development of the American health care system: what it is, what the policies are, and how students can influence them. The first section focuses on recent history and reforms during the Obama Administration to describe the health care system; section two examines the system’s structure and policies; and the third section explores policy analysis and advocacy, and disparities in health based on demographics and inequities in access to care. It concludes with a discussion of the impact of social factors on health and health status. The new edition incorporates the CSWE EPAS competencies; it is for social work courses in health care, health care policy, and health and mental health care policy.

Praise For WHEN THE BODY SAYS NO "Once thought to be in the domain of genes, our health and behavior have recently been revealed to be controlled by our perception of the environment and our beliefs. Gabor Mate, M.D., skillfully blends recent advances in biomedicine with the personal insights of his patients to provide empowering insight into how deeply developmental experiences shape our health, behavior, attitudes, and relationships. A must-read for health professionals and lay readers seeking awareness of how the mind controls health." -- Bruce Lipton, Ph.D., cellular biologist "The interviewees' stories are often touching and haunting. . . . Mate carefully explains the biological mechanisms that are activated when stress and trauma exert a powerful influence on the body, and he backs up his claims with compelling evidence from the field. . . . Both the lay and specialist reader will be grateful for the final chapter, 'The Seven A's of Healing,' in which Mate presents an open formula for healing and the prevention of illness from hidden stress." -- Quill & Quire "Medical science searches high and low for the causes of cancer, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, and a host of other conditions. Yet it often ignores one of the most pervasive factors leading to illness: the hidden stresses embedded in our daily lives. In this important book, Dr. Gabor Mate combines a passionate examination of his patients' life histories with lucid explanations of the science behind mind-body unity. He makes a compelling argument for the importance of understanding stress both in the causation of disease and in the restoration of health." -- Richard Earle, Ph.D. Director of the Canadian Institute of Stress/ Hans Selye Foundation Praise For SCATTERED "One of the most comprehensive and accessible books about Attention Deficit Disorder." -- Publishers Weekly (starred review) "Utterly sensible and deeply moving." -- The Vancouver Sun

»Hari vereint präzise Recherche mit einer zutiefst menschlichen Erzählung. Dieses Buch wird eine dringend notwendige Debatte auslösen.« Glenn Greenwald Der Krieg gegen die Drogen gilt inzwischen als gescheitert, der Handel mit Drogen ist ein blühendes Geschäft, alle Maßnahmen gegen den Konsum sind weitgehend erfolglos. Woran liegt das? Der britische Journalist Johann Hari begibt sich auf eine einzigartige Reise – von Brooklyn über Mexiko bis nach Deutschland – und erzählt die Geschichten derjenigen, deren Leben vom immerwährenden Kampf gegen Drogen geprägt ist: von Dealern, Süchtigen, Kartellmitgliedern, den Verlierern und Profiteuren. Mit seiner grandiosen literarischen Reportage schreibt Hari sowohl eine Geschichte des Krieges gegen Drogen als auch ein mitreißendes und streitbares Plädoyer zum Umdenken. »Hervorragender Journalismus, packend erzählt.« Naomi Klein »Phantastisch!« Noam Chomsky

Schwangerschaft, Geburt und erste Lebensjahre bergen viele Risiken für verborgene Traumatisierungen. In einer ausführlichen Einleitung und in 16 Einzelbeiträgen zeigt das Buch, wie mit dem von Franz Ruppert entwickelten Aufstellungsverfahren frühe Traumata zugänglich und behandelbar werden. Unter Mitwirkung von: Birgit Assel, Vivian Broughton, Doris Brombach, Annemarie Denk, Christina Freund, Gabriele Hoppe, Liesel Krüger, Petra Lardschneider, Manuela Specht, Andrea Stoffers, Dagmar Strauss, Cordula Schulte, Alice Schultze-Kraft, Marta Thorsheim, Margriet Wentink. Bereits durch vorgeburtliche Einflüsse oder Ereignisse rund um die Geburt und unmittelbar danach kann die Psyche Schaden nehmen: so z.B. durch Abtreibungsversuche, schwierige Geburt, Operationen im Säuglingsalter oder eine Wochenbettdepression der Mutter. Diese und viele andere Störungen der frühren Lebenszeit sind der Erinnerung normalerweise nicht zugänglich. Durch das von Franz Ruppert entwickelte Verfahren "Aufstellen des Anliegens" können auch früheste Traumata rekonstruiert und damit auflösbar werden. In 16 Autoren-Beiträgen, die jeweils ein Thema aus dem prä-, peri- und postnatalen Bereich praxisnah darstellen, erschließt sich die ganze Bandbreite der frühesten Entwicklungsrisiken und auch ihre Heilungschancen. In einem ausführlichen Einleitungs- und Schlusskapitel führt Franz Ruppert in die Methode ein und gibt eine Zusammenschau des Anwendungsfeldes.
