    Beyond Codependency

    in Parents

    Do you know the actual definition of codependent? No? That’s okay, because no one does. It’s a term that was created by treatment professionals in the 80’s. In the early 80’s when treatment centers became overrun with people abusing and addicted to alcohol and drugs, clinicians attempted to lump them all together and find one label to cover the myriad of phases of addiction their clients were showing up in (read: diagnoses were becoming more and more difficult to make, and were often wrong). This led to a change in the terminology from “alcoholism” and “addicted” to “chemical dependency”. On tonight's podcast we'll discuss where the term "codependent" came from, and whether or not it actually applies to you.

    Special Parents Confidential 50 ADHD Nation Alan Schwarz

    in Parents

    ADHD Nation, Children, Doctors, Big Pharma, and the making of an American Epidemic, is a new book by New York Times correspondent Alan Schwarz, that is putting a lot of focus on ADHD and the way it’s diagnosed and treated in the United States. Alan Schwarz is the Pulitzer Prize nominated investigative reporter who wrote more than 100 articles that helped expose the serious problems of concussions in football players of all ages. His work lead to movies and documentaries about the seriousness of concussions and to the NFL finally admitting the problem and making changes in how they deal with the problems.
    Excessive Diagnosis?
    Mr. Schwarz has done an intense amount of research in statistical evidence that shows an often higher number of children and adults are being diagnosed with ADHD, nearly three times the established number. This means millions of people more than expected are being diagnosed, or often misdiagnosed. He also profiles a number of the major names involved in the diagnosis and treatment of ADHD. Including Dr. Keith Conners, who has been called “the father of ADHD”, and we learn his concerns about how his work has been misused.
    A Fair Balance.
    ADHD Nation is a very well balanced book, in that it doesn’t attempt to deny that ADHD is a valid medical condition. In fact the book opens with the statement, “AHDH is real.” Mr. Schwarz proves that in the correct circumstances ADHD medications work and are highly effective. But, as you’ll hear in this interview, far too many people, especially children, are being put on the medications when they clearly do not have ADHD and don’t need medications. This is an important book and you’ll learn how Mr. Schwarz researched the numbers and compiled the evidence that he presents in the book.

    Remember when you were a child and your friends would say you look just like your mom or dad. Then in your teenage years you would say things like I am never going to treat my kids like my parents treat me. Then as a young adult you start to realize you act or behave just like you parents. The one day you wake up as an adult and realize you have become your parents and you are shocked !!! So the lessons you have learned growing up have now become a way of your life. Then you look in the mirror of your child's face and realize that you want to change somethings about you ! What are the questions that start to form in your mind as you look in the mirror of you child? How far from what you taught them have you grown or not? What things do you want to change from the inside out in order to help your children by first helping your self?
