Bright Not Broken - Hosted by Rebecca Banks and Diane Kennedy
As parents, the two of us (Diane and Rebecca) sought answers as to why our own children were trapped by an alphabet soup of labels despite their obvious abilities. While we researched and wrote Bright Not Broken, we realized that we were asking questions no other book has addressed: Why does the DSM system lead to an alphabet soup of labels? Could it be that our system is fundamentally flawed or incapable of meeting the needs of practicing clinicians and parents? If not clinicians and caregivers, whom does the DSM system serve?Join us for the second in a two-part series on the DSM. Featuring Drs. William Sheehan and Stephen Thurber, Part 2 explores some of the challenges the DSM presents for practicing clinicians and parents/caregivers, and addresses some of the questions we raise in our book including, questioning the Validity of the ADHD Diagnosis.
