Join or create book clubs » How Attention Deficit Disorder Originates and What You Can Do About It DOC In this breakthrough guide to understanding treating and healing Attention Deficit Disorder Dr Gabor Mat 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 Attention Deficit Disorder ADD has uickly become a controversial topic in recent Mate begins with the statement that ADD is “defined by three major features any two of which suffice for the diagnosis poor attention skills deficient impulse control and hyperactivity” There is no specific citation here to justify this claim but assuming it is generally agreed that this is true what makes up the body of the book are dozens of portrayals of random characteristics which Mate identifies as those attributable to ADD In what might be considered typical ADD fashion there is no ordered attempt to associate these characteristics directly with the major features in his original definition despite the cleverly titled chapters or maybe because of themNowhere does Mate suggest that a diagnosis of ADD would necessitate a preponderance of these characteristics or conversely that taken individually these characteristics might be diagnosed as some other disorder or even God forbid as a relatively natural response to the stressors of the world we live in Mate defines these “hallmark” characteristics of ADD in absolutes rendering many of his conclusions not only inaccurate but irresponsible His leaps of logic and lack of hard evidence or citations other than general lists at the end of the book are maddening and some scientific “evidence” was misrepresented see other reviewsI have lived for 30 years with an ADD husband and his daughter abandoned by her mother before the age of two Both were diagnosed by psychiatrists not family practice physicians as is Mate Some of the behaviors which Mate describes are recognizable in one of them but not the other; some cannot be seen in either; some are issues for bothMate’s hypothesis that ADD is the result as much of nurture as nature is enlightened as we now know nature and nurture together are responsible for all the positive and difficult aspects of our physical and emotional health Though we may be born with a proclivity for a disease or disorder we do not have to open those genetic envelopes So I applaud Mate for making this point and taking the inevitability out of the ADD euationBut he severely undermines any positive take away on this score by focusing on the role of early childhood trauma in bringing about ADD behaviors and placing the responsibility solely on the shoulders of mothers This blame is not only unhelpful but downright detrimental to ADD mothers everywhere who often feel overwhelmed and abandoned in the face of it The weight of this finger pointing is countered with almost NO help at all as he offers nothing than the same suggestions which may be found in any of the hundreds of pop psych magazine articles that are published in any given monthI’d suggest skipping this book and reading Hallowell or Thomas E Brown instead IMHO This book belongs in the ever growing category of self help books written by doctors whom we are wont to trust out to make a name for themselves from insufficiently substantiated theories Just the sorts of distractions that render us “Scattered”
