English | January 3rd, 2019 | ISBN: 0676971458, 1785042211 | 256 pages | EPUB | 5.43 MB

Scattered Minds explodes the myth of attention deficit disorder as genetically based – and offers real hope and advice for children and adults who live with the condition.

Gabor Maté is a revered physician who specializes in neurology, psychiatry and psychology – and himself has ADD. With wisdom gained through years of medical practice and research, Scattered Minds is a must-read for parents – and for anyone interested how experiences in infancy shape the biology and psychology of the human brain.

Scattered Minds
• Demonstrates that ADD is not an inherited illness, but a reversible impairment and developmental delay
• Explains that in ADD, circuits in the brain whose job is emotional self-regulation and attention control fail to develop in infancy – and why
• Shows how 'distractibility' is the psychological product of life experience
• Allows parents to understand what makes their ADD children tick, and adults with ADD to gain insights into their emotions and behaviours
• Expresses optimism about neurological development even in adulthood
• Presents a programme of how to promote this development in both children and adults
