ADHD Diagnosis, Executive Function Evolves | Hallowell After Distraction
Where the frontier of science once was is now the centre.
The Remarkable Evolution Of Thinking About Thinking – ADHD Diagnosis
Edward (Ned) Hallowell, M.D., is a thought leader, a child and adult psychiatrist, a NY Times bestselling author, a world-renowned keynote speaker and a leading authority in the field of ADHD and a leading expert on ADHD diagnosis. He is a graduate of Harvard College and Tulane Medical School, and the Founder of The Hallowell Centers in Boston MetroWest, MA, New York City, San Francisco, CA and Seattle, WA.
Update: With such an outstanding listener response to our first interview with Dr. Hallowell at CBJ/156 we thought it helpful to rekindle your Executive Function thoughts for the coming year with his evolved perspectives. Thanks, Ned!
He was a member of the Harvard Medical School faculty from 1983 until he retired from academics in 2004 to devote his full professional attention to his clinical practice, lectures, and writing additional books.
Ed Note: As CBJ listeners already know – we think that understanding ADHD Diagnosis & Executive Function Challenges herald the next necessary changes in the transformation of functional mind science. It’s a privilege to underscore these important evolutionary insights with Dr. Hallowell, an internationally acclaimed thought leader on essential next steps. Feel free to comment below on the necessity of understanding function in addition to behavioral appearances for executive function challenges/”ADHD.”
He has authored 20 books on various psychological topics, including ADHD diagnosis and treatment, the power of the human connection, the childhood roots of happiness in life, methods of forgiving others, dealing with worry and managing excessive busyness.
He has been featured on 20/20, 60 Minutes, Oprah, PBS, CNN, The Today Show, Dateline, Good Morning America, The Jane Pauley Show, The View and much more. He has been interviewed for The New York Times, USA Today, Newsweek, Time Magazine, U.S. News and World Report, USA Weekend, the Los Angeles Times, the Boston Globe and multiple other interviews. He is a regular columnist for ADDitude Magazine.
In 1994 Dr. Hallowell and Dr. John Ratey introduced the public to ADHD when they co-authored the New York Times bestseller Driven to Distraction (Pantheon) and then the accompanying Answers to Distraction (Pantheon, 1995). “Driven” has sold more than a million copies and is considered a “must read” for those interested in finding out about life with an ADHD diagnosis. The two authors also published an ADHD update, Delivered From Distraction (Ballantine) in 2005 that spends more time on adults with ADHD and provides timely information on both medicinal and non-medicinal treatments.
His ADHD Practice & Recovery Writing Evolves
In his medical practice, Dr. Hallowell helps adults, as well as children, learn how to lead healthy, happy lives. He agrees with the research that suggests that connection and forgiveness have great power to shape our lives for the positive. His ADHD diagnosis and treatment strategies are now available nationally at his Hallowell Centers – see his website link below.
Beyond ADHD Diagnosis Into Connections & Relationships
Connect: 12 Vital Ties that Open Your Heart, Lengthen Your Life and Deepen Your Soul, focuses on the power of the various connections people make in life. The 12 different kinds of connection that Dr. Hallowell outlines in this book provide a roadmap to a satisfying and healthy life.
Dr. Hallowell continues the theme of connection by exploring it in the business world in The Human Moment at Work, which was published in The Harvard Business Review in 1999 and in Human Moments: How to Find Meaning and Love in Your Everyday Life.
