About the Course:

This course is recommended for health care professionals, especially psychologists, counselors, social workers, and nurses who provide services to or seek knowledge about ADHD. Whether unfamiliar or familiar with some of the concepts involved in this material, you can benefit from information in this course. Hard, visual data make a compelling case for the existence of attention deficit disorder (ADD) in this pioneering work by Daniel G. Amen, M.D. Using a nuclear medicine technique called “single photon emission computed tomography” (SPECT), Dr. Amen scans patients’ brains to identify various abnormalities. From more than 8,000 such studies and more than 12,000 patient evaluations, Dr. Amen concludes that six—not the formerly presumed two—different types of ADD exist. This book encompasses the full spectrum of Dr. Amen’s work: from symptom identification to clinical evaluation, to diet and medication recommendations, to everyday strategies for living with ADD (whether the reader is a parent of an ADD child, or has been diagnosed with the disease.)

No stranger to the skepticism surrounding this topic, Dr. Amen begins with a list of dead-on myths (including “ADD is overdiagnosed”) and surprising facts (“Many people with ADD are never hyperactive”). From this intriguing beginning flows a highly readable chapter on the signs and manifestations of ADD in all ages. Dr. Amen’s full description of SPECT imaging includes multiple brain scan photos that nicely support his theories. Dr. Amen thoroughly explores the biological (diet, exercise, medication), psychological (from personal coaching to psychotherapy), and social support (parenting and school strategies) needed to heal each type of ADD. This book will prove a valuable tool for parents, adult sufferers, and medical professionals seeking practical support for managing this increasingly recognized condition.

This course is based on the book, Healing ADD: The Breakthrough Program That Allows You to See and Heal the 6 Types of ADD created by Daniel G. Amen, M.D. in 0.
