This extensive conversation examines the facts and misunderstandings surrounding ADHD, diagnosis and misdiagnosis, treatment, family responsibilities, the subtitles of medication, adult ADHD, gender, what's happening on an international level and finally the stigma of mental illness.This carefully-edited book includes an introduction, The Last Frontier, and questions for discussion at the end of each chapter.

ADHD Rush Hour [electronic resource (video)] / by Films for the Humanities & Sciences (Firm)(SAGE)1984150; Films Media Group(SAGE)1996584; Lorand Entertainment Inc..;
Introduction to ADHD (2:47) -- Confronting Disruptive Behavior (4:25) -- Diagnosing ADHD (1:13) -- Childhood Exuberance or Mental Disorder? (4:19) -- ADHD from the Patient's Perspective (3:54) -- Encouraging Behavioral Changes (2:53) -- Pushing for Classroom Control (3:34) -- Misdiagnosis (1:40) -- Genetic and Environmental Factors (3:17) -- Correcting Brain Chemistry (1:30) -- Improvement with Treatment (3:51) -- ADHD Drugs (2:31) -- Negative Side Effects of ADHD Medication (4:35) -- Debate over ADHD Treatment (3:31) -- Medication vs. Therapy (5:18) -- Fitting In (5:17) -- Defining Mental Disorders (2:32) -- Inventing Mental Diseases to Treat (2:10) -- Mental Health Bible (1:28) -- Pharmaceutical Industry's Role (4:10) -- Lacking Government Support (1:31) -- Questioning ADHD's Validity (3:07) -- Suppressing Normal Behavior (1:50) -- Creating Pathologies in Normal Children (1:35) -- Credits: ADHD Rush Hour (2:31)The issues surrounding attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD, are fiercely debated. Who decides when rambunctious behavior has become a psychiatric concern? Do the benefits of Ritalin outweigh its risks? Is ADHD even a true disorder, or just another way for pharmaceutical companies to make money? This program speaks with students diagnosed with ADHD and to nearly a dozen medical and academic experts about its identification and treatment. Pediatrics professor William B. Carey believes that ADHD is being overdiagnosed, and Dr. William Pelham describes a successful treatment plan based on behavior modification - even as young people with ADHD praise the positive results of taking their meds. Other topics include genetic factors, medication risks, teachers as diagnosticians, and the centuries-long history of medicalizing hyperactivity.9 & up.Mode of access: Internet.System requirements: FOD playback platform.Title from distributor's description.
