About this product
- DescriptionSince 1987, the number of children diagsed with ADHD has increased dramatically. Alarmed by this trend, family therapist, Marilyn Wedge, set out to understand how ADHD became an American epidemic-and to find out whether there are alternative treatments to powerful prescription drugs. In A DISEASE CALLED CHILDHOOD, Wedge examines the factors that have created a generation addicted to stimulant drugs. Instead of focusing only on treating symptoms, she looks at the various potential causes of hyperactivity and inattention in children and behavioral and environmental-as opposed to strictly biological-treatments that have been proven to help. In the process, Wedge offers a new paradigm for child mental health-and a better, happier and less medicated future for American children.
- Author BiographyMarilyn Wedge is a practising family therapist with a PhD in social psychology from the University of Chicago, where she received a grant from the prestigious Danforth Foundation.
