Free downloads – gifts from Dr. Charles Parker

If you haven’t been over to Dr. Charles Parker’s “new and improved” CorePsych Blog yet – for a wealth of information you won’t find anywhere else – maybe a “bribe” or five might move it to the top of your list.

“There ain’t no IS about ADD” ~ mgh

Fellow ADD advocate (originator of a TON of web content and author of two “Rules” books now), Dr. Parker is one of the physician crusaders for specificity – of diagnosis and of treatment approaches.

He insists that we need to take a detailed look at a whole lot more than
many of his collegues realize, and that the look must be individual specific.

The checklist below is from his download link page — another of my “reblog” work-arounds: a few points to consider as you think about why YOU might be interested in what he has to say.

Full Disclosure: he doesn’t even know I’m doing this, so he certainly isn’t paying me to do it!

Are YOU in any of the following situations?

  • You think you have ADHD, but aren’t sure about the diagnosis in the first place
  • You have previously failed ADHD treatment with confusing medications
  • You are taking ADHD medications and don’t know what to expect
  • You would love to be treated, but fear the multiple issues with stimulant medications
  • You have a loved one who is taking ADHD medications and can’t figure out what’s going on
  • You are a professional who treats ADHD with stimulant medications and feel confused
  • You are a health professional who counsels patients who suffer with ADHD but are confused by ADHD Meds
  • You are an employer with employees who suffer with ADHD and don’t have clue how to counsel them
  • You are an interested consumer who wonders about problems with meds used for ADHD
  • You wonder about precise diagnosis and are fed up with superficial, vague labels that don’t work
  • You wonder how to get the meds right if you don’t know specific dosing strategies

And, finally, he says:

  • Did I leave anyone out? – Very likely… so.

  3. I like the additional 5 rules you added to the already 3 “Where the rubber meets the road of reality” for coaching. Brain injury overlaps with ADD/ADHD. Is the treatment the same with and without brain injury? Are the brains of ADD/ADHD clients sensitive to chemicals as those with TBI?


    • HYPER-sensitive! Not only to chemicals, but to lack of sleep, noise, scratchy or uncomfortable clothing – ANYthing, really, that adds to the number of items the PFC needs to filter OUT. (can’t find the juggling link I want to reference, but I’ll come back to edit once I do — VERY important concept that explains our seemingly erratic abilities to cope).

      Juggling Link: HERE ‘TIS ==> Juggling Invisible Balls

      I’m thrilled you got over to Charlie Parker’s site – you can probably tell that he edited my article, so a few things are subtly different, but the meat is there. I plan a follow-on article (eventually:|) — adding some concepts that would have taken more time and space than I had available when I wrote that post.

      I REALLY appreciate your support getting the word out about the info here, btw. You are the best!
