"Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is a long-term disorder affecting many children and adults. It is also a highly controversial psychiatric disorder; in its cause, its diagnosis, and the effect of diagnosis on the patient. This controversy is exacerbated by the commonly recommended treatment for the condition - Ritalin. The Science of ADHD addresses the scientific status of ADHD in an informed and accessible way, without recourse to emotional or biased viewpoints. The very latest studies are used to present a reasoned account of ADHD and its treatment. The Science of ADHD is highly multidisciplinary, covering the areas of genetics, neuroscience, psychology and treatment. The ever increasing scientific evidence is described and discussed, informing the reader of the limitations of the science, but also the benefits that scientific enquiry can bring to understanding what goes on in the ADHD brain"--Provided by publisher.

Children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) leave for school in the morning with a smile and a backpack, ready to make friends. They often return from school after having been bullied. Children with ADHD appear vulnerable to their peers, because they misinterpret social cues and behave in a socially inappropriate manner. These children have few if any friends. This book explains the difficulties that children with ADHD endure to those individuals who do not understand the complexities of these children's problems. Difficulties with attention, organization and social interaction are listed, defined, and described. Teachers and personnel who work with these children in school and parents who work with their children at home are offered innovative techniques for improving these children's behavior, in a way that everyone can understand and implement. Real-life experiences of average people living with children with ADHD are included, so that parents can feel less alone in their experiences.

Pathological Child Psychiatry and the Medicalization of Childhood

Currently, it is common practice among the child psychiatric establishment to prescribe powerful and potentially addictive drugs to children who have emotional or behavioural problems. Pathological Child Psychiatry and the Medicalization of Childhood is a strong challenge to this way of thinking. Sami Timimi uses a wide variety of sources that shape our understanding including his personal experiences to highlight the role of culture, beliefs, science, social hierarchy and power, in shaping our understanding of childhood problems and how to deal with them. He urges professionals who work with children to question their assumptions in a manner that will enable them to access a greater variety of potentially helpful therapeutic frameworks. Since the 1960s, psychiatry has had to learn to accommodate critical analysis of its beliefs and methods. The legitimacy of its core assumptions continues to be questioned. Now child psychiatry too must engage with such a debate, if it wishes to develop into a genuinely democratic and inclusive profession. Pathological Child Psychiatry and the Medicalization of Childhood will be of great interest to professionals and trainees in psychiatry and child psychiatry, social work, family therapy and other psychotherapies for children and adolescents.
