Rules That Work: ADHD101 – The Message From Mis-Thinking
Trust not too much to appearances.
Why Provide “ADHD” Coursework?
“ADHD” Is The Master Key That Unlocks
The Complexity of Mind Science Diagnosis & Treatment
Guesswork Is Out; Data Is In
First, consider this elemental point: if medications are working, all is well – no problem. Press on.
Or, more to the too common point, start today with the stigma and disappointments of behavioral “ADHD” appearances to drive your investigatory resolve and correct the inaccuracy of “ADHD” diagnosis and treatment globally.
> Read this page and then also trek over to my new CBA – CoreBrain Academy to see what we’re building – but not finished – over there: https://www.corebrainacademy.com/ Call this blurb a soft launch!
For Now – Until CBA Detailed Tutorials Are Live:
Stay posted here for upcoming comprehensive video training on why, what, and how-to-fix-it for those disappointing, costly unpredictable outcomes – including full metabolic and comorbidity evaluations. The Essential New Standard: cost-effective, office brain and biomedical measures, in Anytown.
If, while treating “ADHD,” we aren’t even thinking about thinking in the first place – then next, with those blinders firmly loaded, we attempt to treat thinking without thinking about thinking – just what should one do?
“ADHD” suddenly becomes the tip of a much larger psychiatric iceberg that unexpectedly projects much further underwater than when first considered many years ago – before the age of biomedical awareness. Yes, the Titanic did not strike the visible tip of the iceberg. The fog of the unseen now lifts to the light of day. Photo by Cassie Matias on Unsplash
If, on the other hand, you do want answers to reduce your significant costs in time, money and emotional frustration with hours, years of developmental arrest – press on with me here. And if you’re regularly puzzled by your trusted medical professional asking you vague, ungrounded questions like “Is it working?’ and “Do we need to go up [or down?” – when they have no specific, science-based understanding of medical treatment objectives in the first place – then go immediately to the bottom of this page and sign up for my particular updates/coursework on the critical specifics of mind-care.
Solutions Arise With Directions From Problems
I’m not a nay-sayer but a solution maker. First, identify the fact that unseen problems rule the day, then let’s move forward to do something about it. Now is the time for New Directions – to take useful charting reports to avoid and correct our courses for the abundance of unseen biomedical impediments in the seas we sail every day.
Why Start With “ADHD?”
People don’t take trips – trips take people.
These ADHD101 Tutorials encourage improved maps. I start with “ADHD” because the current foundations of diagnosis and treatment of that disorder are so superficial and ineffective, and yet, quite ironically, now so easily understood and corrected. Once underlying functional brain and body systems connect with new data, those previous impediments lead to an improved, more comprehensive understanding of useful cognitive measures throughout all the rest of mind-care interventions.
Our opening ADHD101 Module is a starter that sets the tone for other levels of coursework to follow. If we don’t learn to assess cognition, executive function activities, in every evaluation, every medication, and supplement review activity, then we’re missing an understanding of the essence of that person’s life skills, and of the mind-markers that address the evolution of humankind. Yes, it’s that imperative.
Our CoreBrain Biologic Office Review, based on brain function, and discussed in multiple lessons in CoreBrain Academy Coursework, will work with training in any office, Anywhere. You can tighten these CoreBrain Biologic details with clients or with yourself, after taking the time for mastery, in less than one hour. It’s fun, I never tire while using it, and interns rotating through for outpatient training master it very quickly. After watching me interview for a few hours they start to anticipate the next question because they know, they can see more clearly the roadblocks with diagnosis and medications.
In CBA Coursework I’ll provide even more inclusive specifics with clinical examples.
Then Also Consider
Does the concept of ‘mind-care’ sound too vague? Well, the reason is simple: informed psychiatric treatment now includes far more than labels, medications, and guesswork. Mind-care includes details that address everything from basic, specific medication objectives to understandable neuroscience and metabolic roadblocks now measurable for targeted correction. Yes, I’m quite outspoken about the need for improvements, but constructively optimistic. Progress sits just outside, right there on your doorstep.
Take a moment to review training and coursework options for answers that will make a difference in your life, and in your family’s lives. If you’re interested in predictability and clear objectives with measurable outcomes go immediately to the bottom of this page to own actionable, understandable targets and treatments for a lifetime – with updates.
Don’t Keep Guessing – Go For Found Instead of Lost
The human mind is more complex than formulaic stereotypes and dogma.
Neurobiology is the new standard that provides explicit, customized treatment targets.
~ Parker et al
For the too-frequent counterproductive outcomes when medications do not work predictably, then more insightful measures, more biological, brain function data points are useful and indicated. Neurobiology does not go down the various rabbit holes of different DSM-5 appearances that provide variable results – as also witnessed repeatedly in stereotypical, conventional psychological testing based on the same limited criteria.
Others Agree: New Perspectives Work
“ADHD” misunderstandings provide new biologically-based lanterns for the pervasive mind darkness arising from multiple flippant, wastebasket diagnoses like bipolar and borderline personality.
At ADHD101 our team recognizes, uses, and regularly reports on the unusual abundance of substantial neuroscience tools and markers that do improve care for more precisely targeted psychiatric conditions. Understandable ADHD101 tutorials open the door for more useful office solutions. Actionable applications update worn-out mind misperceptions and provide improved New Rules to correct the mind-science diagnostic and treatment game.
With these tools, you can sharply tighten up.
This Is The Problem
Every day our team witnesses the fact that, more often than not, the sea of humanity needing treatment for a variety of psychiatric conditions – starting most obviously with “ADHD” – does not get the necessary facts to help them understand and effectively participate in their medical care.
If your medical provider doesn’t get it, participatory medicine is impossible. Vertical medicine is, by default, built-in, based on a limited view of the patient’s ability to participate – coupled with the practitioner’s limited perspective of measurable treatment objectives.
The too common result: disrespect, missed information, target misidentification – like goose hunting at night, shooting whimsically at passing honks in the darkness.
Every day I evaluate numerous second and first opinions [more than 1000 new patients/year for since the 80’s]. And during those many remarkably revealing interviews [which I discuss in detail in these ADHD101 Training Modules] – I will show you how using ADHD101 fundamental office-brain-function-questions, repeatedly overlooked for years, often decades, on previous evaluation encounters, can make a profound difference at any level of intervention.
Start With Thinking & Not Thinking: “ADHD” Opens The Door
You’ve heard me say it many times: “ADHD” is the most obvious manifestation of an outdated diagnostic system adrift with no maps on the insufficient sea of behavioral appearances – the current scanty standard of mind-target recognition. You know the standard is inadequate because you repeatedly hear it from every street corner: “Is he/she hyperactive or inattentive – I can’t tell,” “ADHD is dreamed up by pharmaceutical companies to make money,” “Doctors don’t know what they’re doing…,” and so on.
With the current diagnostic and treatment vagaries of “ADHD,” seeing does not encourage believing. Mind reality, executive function, is indeed far deeper, below the surface, yet is easily understood if you look with fresh eyes under the skin.
Time, Function & Nuance – Training Matters
No man was ever wise by chance.
CoreBrain Academy will formally launch soon – I’m building the coursework now with many more details and video modules underway.
The “ADHD” problem of diagnosis and treatment is at first confusing. And yet, it’s an excellent teaching/learning opportunity. Paradoxically simple technology moves mind science from reductionistic simplicity to address that complexity, and then back again to logical hard data answers to explain and prevent treatment failure. Mind-reality is changing, from static labels to changing life/thinking/adaptation processes over time within different contextual realities.
I build in assessments for the moving variables of Time, Context & Biomedical Reality with every evaluation and treatment process. With hidden challenges over time comes unwelcome low-grade chronicity, subtlety, and more nuanced work – and it’s all quite easily understandable – if you start here at ADHD101 with proven basics that more often do work – and directly address the realities of life, versus the frozen vagaries of DSM-5.
Measurement Tools Differ
We live in emergent times. I still teach both public and professionals how to efficiently evaluate brain function in the office – without expensive SPECT scans. Yes, I learned from many years of SPECT imaging that brain imaging with the use of SPECT technology is helpful, but far beyond the cost for thousands who suffer globally. That’s why I translate my extensive imaging experience as part of my everyday office practice for you in this data-driven coursework. That extensive experience builds the foundation for the CoreBrain Biologic Review.
Here at ADHD101/CoreBrain Academy, I will teach you what I’ve seen in my office and have addressed carefully since 1996, seven years before I began my intensive post-grad work with brain imaging. The good news: brain imaging taught me much more, and did confirm the observations and subsequent office questions I’ve used effectively since ’96.
The Current Standard Problem: Everyone is Board Certified
Remember this essential point: if all psych diagnoses arise from behavioral appearances, we’re living in a surreal Fashion Show Illusion, and everyone is then automatically board-certified in psychiatry because anyone can produce reasonable opinions about the presence of various dresses in the show. Too many read the inadequate reportage in the New York Times, and then assume they fully understand brain complexity.
If appearances are the criteria, kids in the 6th grade become experts – and the process of managing suffering human beings devolves into an anti-intellectual, anti-science, prehistoric game of guesswork ruled by gossip and invective.
You Know There Are Problems – With Both Diagnosis & The Meds
Dogma is a belief system. Reality is what it is.
~ Parker & Others
But the complexity of mind science doesn’t effectively work on a foundation of labels, politically, diagnostically, or for psychiatric treatments. And because those behavioral diagnoses are so repeatedly inaccurate, we’re living in a global, capricious executive function treatment conundrum. These inaccuracies create a disconcerting worldwide challenge and stigma wherein medical practitioners don’t have basic training on how to use, for example, stimulant medications correctly – because they practice by that insufficient, superficial standard.
Does that sound too harsh? You’ll see what I mean on the inside.
These observations aren’t heresy. The public, closer to the many disappointments that arise both from the cost for ineffective treatments and resultant painful inaccuracy, commonly recognizes these shortcomings found within the current limitations of behavioral dogma – as fact – with resultant stigma, fear, and negativity directed toward any psychiatric care. Just ask.
The behavioral-appearance-standard-of-care is the absolute foundation for the prevailing stigma against psychiatric intervention – because of the undeniable glaring inadequacies associated with those markers. It’s far beyond time for an improved dialogue on a street level, with appropriate respect for the public who risks taking a stimulant, or any meds, without clear functional treatment objectives or follow-up guidelines.
Mind Science Lives Beyond Fashion Shows & Speculation – Consider: ADHD101
Knowledge of what is does not open the door directly to what should be.
~ Albert Einstein
However, the good news today is we live in a Galileo Mind Moment. Brain technology reveals a much more predictable universe. Here within our ADHD101 tutorials, soon to become a formal training/evaluation site with video explanations and operational/actionable details, I will help you and your medical team understand facts, fiction, and how to work even more effectively with your trusted medical providers – wherever.
Why? Science makes outcomes more predictable.
These video courses [coming soon] will help you clearly define Executive Function Problems based upon the latest brain research in the privacy of your own home. Training will tell you concrete suggestions on what-t0-do to help your doc get your diagnosis, meds, and any comorbidity right on the table – so you can more clearly see them – to address the underlying biomedical facts.
We Started Complimentary Training For Public With Videos More Than 10 Years Ago
My book, New ADHD Medication Rules, is still the only book, a best-seller at Amazon, written for the public to understand the complexity and essential New Rules for using ADHD medications correctly. The wonderful ADHD experts we’ve added to this critical diagnostic and treatment conversations at CoreBrain Journal are helpful, but also can’t provide all the specific answers you need in a Guest Expert 50-minute CoreBrain Journal interview.
I’m not bragging – I think it’s quite surprising, indeed odd, that others haven’t seized on practical solutions for this essential, pervasive set of diagnostic and treatment shortcomings.
Public Awareness of Options Provides Improved Targeting
As you already know, through my hundreds – over 300 – of complimentary YouTube Videos, I am seriously determined to make a difference with those who suffer from the innocence of not-knowing-what-to-do, inadequate diagnosis, misinformed treatment and, ultimately, multiple treatment failures. My YouTube videos can get you started, and yet most who suffer from ADHD diagnostic and treatment failure challenges do need to dig more deeply to understand the underlying treatment options – precisely what to do, and what not to do.
Just look at the many questions and answers that arise on every Core video I’ve loaded on YouTube regarding ADHD. The Q&A there is part of the reason why I’ve created ADHD101 – it takes you far past the basics of “ADHD.”
Other Medical Professionals and Coaches Also Need Updates: The New Application – “Microcertification”
ADHD101 will also inform medical practitioners and coaches in our more significant effort to support their reasons to train in medicine in the first place: to create more predictable outcomes. I do plan to Micro-Certify, Credential, and directly refer to medical practitioners to help answer the multiple questions I receive from clients seeking ADHD/Executive Function treatment services globally – who need local doctors who understand these crucial variables – including more accurate, functional biomedical testing for treatment failures beyond meds.
With new, highly specialized training for the specifics of biomedical practice from ADHD to Mood Disorders, treatment-resistant depression & anxiety, and addictions, practitioners can add to their evolved treatment skill sets with evidence that they will use improved, scientifically based perceptions based on laboratory evidence, more specific than brain scans.
My content here will be comprehensive, not complicated, but inclusive of the many years I’ve received training from the best functional and traditional mind-science mentors – now all delivered in one program. I’m working to achieve CME certifications, so let’s team up! – Sign up for updates below. I’ll keep you posted as we meet those planning objectives.
Today’s Patients – Home Assessments & Feedback
For the world is movement, and you cannot be stationary in your attitude toward something that is moving.
~ Henri Cartier-Bresson
Advanced medical management requires involved patient self-management through sophisticated, yet understandable, additional educational insights. Recovery requires informed teamwork, participatory medicine. The innovative switch in thinking is quite simple: from significant to small, from evident to nuance. Technology provides molecular data that opens new, previously unavailable landscapes.
Movement presents moving targets that require a dynamic, knowledgeable team approach, beyond dogma and speculation.
Treatment Objectives, Functional Biomedical Targets Matter
Our mission for three decades – and now available with more comprehensive solution-details at ADHD101 – is to provide new essentials: more cost-effective, more precise, more participatory team treatment objectives from the outset.
Don’t worry – we make it simple and have for years. And, also, we set up, though this training program, modules to build feedback for interactive questions over time – globally.
ADHD101 also opens the door for many additional tutorials to follow on the evolution of neuroscience applications at the street level. “ADHD” challenges now shine a data-flashlight on the rest of psychiatric darkness.

- “How I Found Myself” Dean RobertsDecember 2, 2016 by Don Hutcheson from United States
I just had the pleasure of listening to Dr. Charles Parker’s latest interview with Mr. Dean Roberts on the topic: “How I Found Myself.” The thesis of this remarkable podcast is that the difference between treatment success and failure for conditions such as depression, anxiety, ADHD, PTSD and others is often the result of omitting crucial brain, biomedical, and functional neuroscience information and insights. Well done and much-needed. Wish you continuing success!
