Psychology Has It Backwards

Episode 113: Understanding “Disorders” of the Brain, Part 2

This is part two of our discussion of brain disorders, focused on the common issue of ADHD.  Many people struggle with ADHD, and how to “manage” life tasks with it.  First, there are good medicines available that slow down thinking, and there is no shame in taking them appropriately.  Second, over time, we have come to recognize more and more that those with ADHD use the gift of thought differently, and often to their own advantage, once they understand it and come to understand how thought works and how not to get sidetracked and overwhelmed.  The struggles people have are more related to fear and anxiety about their thinking than to the way they use the gift of thought.
