A Disease Called Childhood: Why ADHD Became an American Epidemic

<b>A surprising new look at the rise of ADHD in America, arguing for a better paradigm for diagnosing and treating our children</b><br /> <br />In 1987, only 3 percent of American children were diagnosed with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, also known as ADHD. By 2000, that number jumped to 7 percent, and in 2014 the number rose to an alarming 11 percent. To combat the disorder, two thirds of these children, some as young as three years old, are prescribed powerful stimulant drugs like Ritalin and Adderall to help them cope with symptoms. Meanwhile, ADHD rates have remained relatively low in other countries such as France, Finland, and the United Kingdom, and Japan, where the number of children diagnosed with and medicated for ADHD is a measly 1 percent or less. <p><br />Alarmed by this trend, family therapist Marilyn Wedge set out to understand how ADHD became an American epidemic. If ADHD were a true biological disorder of the brain, why was the rate of diagnosis so much higher in America than it was abroad? Was a child's inattention or hyperactivity indicative of a genetic defect, or was it merely the expression of normal behavior or a reaction to stress? Most important, were there alternative treatments that could help children thrive without resorting to powerful prescription drugs? In an effort to answer these questions, Wedge published an article in Psychology Today entitled "Why French Kids Don't Have ADHD" in which she argued that different approaches to therapy, parenting, diet, and education may explain why rates of ADHD are so much lower in other countries.</p><p><br />In A Disease Called Childhood, Wedge examines how myriad factors have come together, resulting in a generation addictied to stimulant drugs, and a medical system that encourages diagnosis instead of seeking other solutions. Writing with empathy and dogged determination to help parents and children struggling with an ADHD diagnosis, Wedge draws on her decades of experience, as well as up-to-date research, to offer a new perspective on ADHD. Instead of focusing only on treating symptoms, she looks at the various potential causes of hyperactivity and inattention in children and examines behavioral and environmental, as opposed to strictly biological, treatments that have been proven to help. In the process, Wedge offers parents, teachers, doctors, and therapists a new paradigm for child mental health--and a better, happier, and less medicated future for American children</p>

When Rebecca Tervo awoke on January 29, 2012 it seemed like just another lazy Sunday morning. What she didn’t realize was that her life and the life of her family had already been changed forever. Her 17 year old son, Trevor, was already <b>dead of suicide</b> in an adjacent room, she just didn’t know it yet.<br /><br /><b>The shock of another teen suicide was felt throughout the community and the schools.</b><br /><br />This book tells how Rebecca reacted to the event that changed everything for her and her family. It was uncharted territory for her, her husband, the community and the school.<br /><br /><b>It describes the unrelenting and nearly unbearable grief and loss.</b> There were so many questions and so few answers. Why would Trevor do this? Where were the signs that Trevor had been depressed? Did someone else know something about Trevor’s pain? Why would such a bright young man choose this? <br /><br />How would she go on? She had so many unanswered questions. How would she care for her other three children and her grief-stricken husband? How would her 20+ year marriage survive the biggest trial it had ever faced?<br /><br />These issues and <b>the grieving process</b> she lived through are all laid out with raw honesty, but are told as if she was sitting with you on the front porch with a cup of coffee.<br /><br />After experiencing all the stages of grief and despite everything, <b>Rebecca finds a way to dig her way back to life.</b> She chooses to live a life with more happiness and purpose than ever before. This book tells how she uses various support groups and therapy sessions to cope, but ultimately does some major work on her own to enter life again. <br /><br />Not as the same woman, but a new, more conscious and mindful mother, wife and friend. She depicts how <b>her personal transformation</b> helped her make the decision to leave her accounting career, lose weight, do major decluttering and forgiveness work, and set some big goals for her life.<br /><br />This book shows how one woman turned her grief and the lessons she learned from it to a purposeful, happy life that she is now living on her terms.<br /><br />Her hope is that <b>anyone facing major obstacles in their life would find inspiration through her story.</b><br /><br /><b>Scroll to the top and click the “buy now” button.</b><br />
