    ADHD: Paying Attention to Attention with Dr. Beth Briere

    in Self Help

    Think about it. What’s obvious is a function of what we pay attention to.  Thus, it seems worthwhile to pay attention to attention.  In this episode, host Jeff Copper interviews Dr. Beth Briere on the topic.  Dr. Briere utilized the research by Dr. Mel Levine around attention to help build a practical clinical model that focuses on helping individuals understand their attentional weaknesses in order to put appropriate strategies in place to address those specific weaknesses.  Jeff will discuss with Beth how attention can be broken down into components through an individual profile that then identifies your unique profile of strengths, affinities, and challenges. The result? A customized learning plan and a roadmap to success.

    ADHD: Using Executive Functioning to Create Habits

    in Self Help

     


     


    Too often, we hear people talk about helping those with ADHD to build habits. We are learning that ADHD is an executive functioning issue and requires effort. It's very effortful, making it more difficult for those with ADHD to build habits than for others. In this episode of Attention Talk Radio, we have an open conversation with Kirsten Milliken (http://www.playadhd.com) around the mechanics of building habits. We address why it's so difficult and particularly hard for those with ADHD. If you're an individual who has found behavior modification to be challenging or just hasn't worked, or if you're thinking of using it, you won't want to miss this show.

    The Impact of Exercise on ADHD with John Ratey

    in Self Help

    Dr. John Ratey (www.johnratey.com) is a bestselling author and an associate professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School. He is a renowned psychiatrist on treating adults with ADD. Since he himself has ADD, it is no surprise that, as a co-author with Dr. Ned Hallowell of the bestselling seminal book on ADD/ADHD, Driven to Distraction, he was able to confront a variety of false notions about ADD, including the most common myths that ADD affects only children and that ADD limits intelligence or self-discipline. Listen in as Dr. Ratey shares his insight on exercise and the ADHD brain.

    Drawing the Wrong Kind of Attention

    in Religion

    I grew up surrounded by families that warned their daughters against wearing clothes that attracted “the wrong kind of attention.” When I was young I accepted this at face value, and understood (rightly) that these parents were trying to protect their daughters against men only interested in getting laid. It made sense to me (and still does) that the way a woman presented herself directly affected the way she was perceived - and most women didn't want just sex.

    It assumes that a woman's clothing is responsible for others' perception of her sexual mores.

    While there is a small grain of truth to this, it resides only in the most extreme cases (think: cheap hookers). The kind of women that would actually need to be reminded about attracting the wrong kind of attention are not the ones concerned with avoiding it. Conversely, the women actually getting warned about attracting purely sexual attention are almost always those who are in no danger of it. While this is sometimes because the girl wanting to avoid sexual attention has not been taught how to make herself sexually attractive to men, it is more frequently function of the fact that adornment and presentation are low on the list of factors indicating a girl's promiscuity. Her behavior is what matters, and girls that don't want casual sex don't usually act like whores.

    ADHD RX Rules: Paying Attention to Meds for Paying Attention

    in Self Help

    You get diagnosed with ADHD, the doctor prescribes a stimulant and that is it; right? Wrong! Getting the right stimulant in the right dose delivered at the right time is more of an art than a science. You see, each person is different and metabolizes stimulants differently. All too often, ADDers get the diagnosis, take the medication, have a bad experience, then give up. In this episode of Attention Talk Radio, host Jeff Copper interviews Dr. Charles Parker, author of “ADHD Medication Rules: Paying Attention to the Meds for Paying Attention.” The two will have an open discussion designed to inform you and help arm you to have a conversation with your mental health professional to tune into the right drug in the right dose using the right delivery system. The two will also discuss follow up strategies. Yes, once you set meds does not mean your needs won't  change. If you have ADHD, have tried stimulants and been frustrated with the results, this is a must-listen-to show to find a physician who is both knowledgeable and current in the field of ADHD.

    What? ADHD Lucked out of ADAAA in Section 504?

    in Self Help

    When laws are passed to protect those in need, agencies of the government are required to write regulations used to adhere to these laws. Who ensures that those with ADHD are protected under these acts? Politicians? Bureaucrats? Who speaks for the ADHD community at large? In this episode of Attention Talk Radio, we'll be interviewing Ingrid Alpern, co-chair of CHADD's public policy committee, for it is they who are actively involved with ensuring that attention deficit disorder is specifically listed as a disability in the 2008 amended act of ADA, which also impacts Section 504 plans. This show will enlighten and inspire you. It will give you reason to understand why everyone should be a part of CHADD (http://www.chadd.org) so that we may come together and speak with one voice.
