Shopping Addiction Shopping is a raging phenomenon among developed countries and has been studied over and over. Sociologists say it’s a ‘female drive’, in an attempt to explain the differences in shopping behaviour between men and women. It was said that the same obsession of men over sports can be linked to the way women go crazy on Black Friday sales or on mall openings. In the evolution of man, the male species are known to be ‘hunters’, while women have always been the ‘gatherers’ or the ones who are in charge of finding things for their offspring. >ADHD Symptoms & Strategies ADHD- Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder- is one of the childhood disorders becoming more and more common in recent years. This is a neurobehavioral disorder, which starts to develop during childhood and may persist into adulthood. The defining characteristic of ADHD is difficulty keeping focus and attention, hyperactivity and difficulty in controlling the different behaviors.

"In a discussion of ADHD treatments, Wender and Tomb stress that drug therapy remains the most effective in treating the disorder. They add, however, that psychological techniques, when combined with medication, can produce further improvement. Wender and Tomb offer practical, comprehensive instructions on how parents of an ADHD sufferer can best help their child. Now a classic work, ADHD grants parents and adults whose lives have been touched by this disorder an indispensable source of help, hope, and understanding"--

This is an integrative approach, from a psychological perspective model, to the treatment of Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) symptomatology that I call "ADHD Symptoms Clinic." It aims to bring new and effective non-pharmacologic treatment of ADHD to children and adolescents as an alternative to medication alone. Research concerning ADHD symptoms intends to bring some relief to children suffering from ADHD and their families with the incorporation of effective methods of treatment that have been scientifically proven to reduce symptoms of ADHD, at least in children with mild to moderate symptoms of the disorder. The objective of this study is also to find effective school interventions to improve academics and socialization skills, adding alternatives to medication alone. This integrative treatment of ADHD addresses sleep disorders and other comorbidities associated with this diagnosis, such as oppositional behaviors, depression, and anxiety. It includes regimens of restriction diet and exercise, school and community center interventions, and individual/family psychotherapy offering parents and children a choice of treatment without medication. There is great controversy surrounding over-diagnosis and over-medication of youth suffering from ADHD symptoms. Parents are sometimes against medication, creating a burden on families, children, and their school systems. The goal of the ADHD Symptoms Clinic is to benefit all the children suffering from ADHD symptomatology regardless of the diagnosis. Whether or not ADHD is a true illness, the symptoms are present, and the number of children suffering from ADHD symptoms constitutes an alarming proportion of young people. This study treats every child as a unique entity through understanding, identifying, and treating symptoms of each individual child. The ADHD Symptoms Clinic looks at the person as a whole and emphasizes the mind-body connection and the individual approach to illness. The ADHD Symptoms Clinic advocates controlling ADHD symptoms by incorporating healthy habits and psychotherapy while reducing or eliminating the need for medication.

ADHD is a condition in the brain many people are somewhat familiar with. However, when it comes to the specifics, the majority of us are still left in the dark. The main essence of ADHD is missing when people just think that you’re hyperactive and unfocused. There is way more to it. And not only is so much more to say about the causes of ADHD, but about the consequences as well. For example, people with ADHD are more prone to addictions or suicide. There is medication for ADHD, but there are also other methods that can help contain the symptoms of the disorder. Moreover, people with ADHD can have specific strengths, too, that other people are lacking. For all these reasons and more, the author of this book has decided to address some of these issues and give you a better grasp of what ADHD is, where it comes from, and what it means in someone’s everyday life.

ADHD is a common, complex and yet often misunderstood condition, affecting children, adolescents and adults. It causes a wide range of difficulties with concentration, impulse control, hyperactivity, motivation and time awareness. This can often lead to school failure, expulsion, and emotional, behavioral and social problems. An estimated two per cent of the population suffers from ADHD. To ensure their effective treatment, three critical areas need to be addressed. Parents, teachers and professionals must become aware of the possibility of ADHD (symptoms can mimic other medical and environmentally related conditions, which can make accurate recognition difficult). Second, the reality of coping with ADHD in its many forms, both for individuals with the condition and those around them, must be acknowledged and understood. Finally, there is a need for a holistic approach to the assessment and management of ADHD to ensure the most effective resolution for individuals. The author gives an overview of the condition based on the broad internationally recognized approach to ADHD, which takes account of its biological as well as environmental elements. He discusses appropriate management guidelines, which include consideration of medication as well as psychosocial and educational strategies. The book aims to be a comprehensive and authoritative text on ADHD, its causes and management currently available in the UK. It provides a practical guide to the process of dealing more effectively with ADHD, from initial recognition to effective management strategies via assessment and diagnosis. It is intended for parents, teachers and other professionals to facilitate appropriate understanding and support for this distressing condition.

In this introductory guide to ADHD in girls, I cover the signs and symptoms of ADHD in girls; how ADHD is affected by adolescence and puberty; and also the way in which ADHD differs in boys and girls. Lastly, I cover how to provide support to your child/student given the particular ways in which ADHD is experienced in girls. This introductory guide is aimed as a primer to the subject, and I have referenced research papers/other websites throughout this book. The key thing to remember is that ADHD is a real developmental disorder experienced by girls and women, and the way in which it is experienced differs from boys. It is important to validate the experiences of girls, as all to often their signs and symptoms are ignored for a variety of reasons. This book is part of the effort to redress the balance and provide the much needed support to girls suffering from ADHD. Best Wishes, Suzanne, England, UK.

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is one of the most common mental disorders affecting children and adolescents. The condition is characterized by a persistent pattern of behavioural symptoms including inattentiveness, hyperactivity, and impulsiveness associated with substantial impairment in social, academic, and/or occupational functioning. Clinical and research interest in the topic of ADHD has grown substantially in recent years but, despite this, there is still a lack of up-to-date reference texts devoted to the diagnosis, assessment, and management of patients with these conditions. Part of the Oxford Textbooks in Psychiatry series, the Oxford Textbook of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder attempts to bridge this gap by providing an authoritative, multi-disciplinary guide to the latest research developments in the diagnosis, assessment, and management of patients with ADHD. Organized into eight key sections, this textbook covers the aetiology, pathophysiology, epidemiology, clinical presentation, co-morbidity, clinical assessment, and clinical management of ADHD. Individual chapters address key topics such as the clinical assessment of ADHD in adults, and contain information on best practice, current diagnostic guidelines including DSM-5 and ICD-11, and key up-to-date references for further reading. Edited and written by an international group of recognized experts, the Oxford Textbook of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is a comprehensive resource suitable for child and adolescent psychiatrists, adult psychiatrists, and psychiatric trainees, as well as child psychologists, paediatricians, psychiatric nurses, and other mental health care professionals.
