Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is Not Related to I.Q.

It's important to know that Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and Intelligence, as measured by I.Q.

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder: Neurologically Based

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is a neurologically based disorder. This position has become controversial as many would like to dismiss the diagnosis of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder altogether saying that there is no evidence of neurological differences, or that there are no medical tests to diagnose ADD ADHD, or that the diagnostic criteria is too broad.

Intro to Being an ADHD Parent

In my fifteen years of private practice working with children with ADHD, one of the common concerns that I observed by parents was the fear that they had done something, or failed to do something, that caused their child's ADHD. I guess it is normal to blame yourself when your child is having problems.

What Is Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder?

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is a medical condition. It is caused by genetic factors that result in certain neurological differences.

How Big of a Problem is Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder?

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder - "ADD" or "ADHD" - affects between five to ten percent (5% - 10%) of all children in the United States, and three to six percent (3% - 6%) of adults. About 35% of all children referred to mental health clinics are referred for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, making it one of the most prevalent of all childhood psychiatric disorders.

Why Does It Seem That There Are More Children With ADHD Than Ever Before?

Even though the percentage of people with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is likely the same as in the past, there are three likely reasons why it seems that "there is more ADHD" than ever before: First, we become more aware of problems like this as parents than we were as a children. We have grown up now and we are more concerned about these issues since we have our own children.

Anti-Social Behaviors and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

Anti-social behaviors are common with ADHD individuals. About 60% of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder kids are also oppositional or defiant.

What Causes Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder?

The most recent models that attempt to describe what is happening in the brains of people with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder suggest that several areas of the brain may be affected by the disorder. They include the frontal lobes, the inhibitory mechanisms of the cortex, the limbic system, and the reticular activating system.

Panic Attacks: Effective Ways to Cope

Jill is a 21 y/o college student who used to do well until about a few months ago when she started to experience "weird" attacks almost daily. She described her experience as "horrible.

Are All Dementias Alzheimer's?

I'm surprised when some patients and caregivers confuse dementia and Alzheimer's as one and the same. Each time a family member is suffering from memory loss, the conclusion is always Alzheimer's.

Behavioral Manifestations of Alzheimer's Dementia

Alzheimer's Dementia has a combination of cognitive and behavioral manifestations. Cognitive impairment is the core problem which includes memory deficits and at least one of the following: aphasia or language problem, agnosia or problems with recognition, apraxia or motor activity problem, and impairment in executive functioning (e.

What is the Treatment for Bipolar Disorder?

How do we treat bipolar disorder? Specifically, how do we treat mania or depression associated with bipolar disorder? The treatment of these two clinical states is not the same.The treatment of mania is dependent upon its severity and acuity.

You, I and We

Our life in society hovers around the concept of 'You-I- We'. The first stage is 'You-You' which is called 'dependent' stage.


ABSTRACTBiometric identification refers to identifying an individual based on his/her distinguishing physiological and/or behavioural characteristics. As these characteristics are distinctive to each and every person, biometric identification is more reliable and capable than the traditional token based and knowledge based technologies differentiating between an authorized and a fraudulent person.

The Power of Pretence
The establishment is built on pretence which is the most powerful aptitude of human development.

Why Communism and Religion Operate With The Same Psychology
Over years of observing them what struck me the most was how similar in principle are the two extremes of communism and religion. While the first is a modern form of nation dominance the second is probably the oldest. As people wake up to the facts about nature, the world, and the universe religion has lost its place as the great source of mystery while communism has filled the gap to enable powerful men to continue in power.

The Psychology Behind Catholic Claims of Angels and the Origin of Its Relics
Everything the Vatican has done over the years has been to add credibility to its claims. The question is how credible are they in the light of the fanciful notions presented to the public, most of which are beyond belief?

Why a Penny Saved Is Not Always a Penny Earned
My grandmother was always quoting things at us while we grew up post World War II and the worst depression ever. She saved everything and was very keen to make sure that waste was not on our program. Lights were turned off immediately they ceased to be used, bits of string were wound up and put into a draw, and wrapping paper was always preserved for recycling.

The Universe: Are We Looking Through the Wrong End of the Telescope?
Almost every day, it seems, we read something in the media about new evidence that we may not be alone in the universe. The search for alien life, once the province of science fiction, has become an established and respected field of astronomical research. The universe is portrayed as an inconceivably vast space with billions of stars, and a statistical probability of having spawned intelligent life on numerous planets in Goldilocks zones around diverse suns. Man, whom the Christian Church once decreed to be the centre of creation, is now viewed more as a random emanation of no particular significance in the grand plan of the cosmos.

Mind-Brain Duality As Wave-Particle Duality
Two of the real biggies when it comes to 1) physics, and 2) neurology / psychology are 1) wave - particle duality, and 2) mind - brain (or body) duality. Could the former assist in explaining the latter? If particles can turn into waves, can brain-matter turn into brain-waves and thus a manifestation of what we call the mind?

Psychotherapy and Visualisation
In this paper I wish to describe the technique of visualisation in the process of psychotherapy as applied to clients in a counselling setting. There are two purposes for visualisation, the first being a technique of relaxation in a therapy session, guided imagination and ability to project thoughts and feelings onto the scene. The second, for home use, where imagery through art or illustration can help to projection and relaxation of the client (patient) in a controlled setting. The first part I shall show the verbal imagery in therapy and in the second the ability to use the technique for self-growth and cognitive insight.

The Real Importance Of Dreams And Warnings
Your mental health depends on your capacity to respect your moral principles when you are tempted to do something absurd and evil that seems to be advantageous for you, but is in fact a trap prepared by your satanic anti-conscience. You must be afraid of all dangers instead of believing that you can control your behavior and you will never do something you disapprove. Your dreams help you avoid having a sad surprise because they show you dangers that you cannot see.

The Genetics Of Bad Behavior - The Nature Versus Nurture Debate Continues
Can we blame criminal behavior on our gene set? Some believe so, but if this is the case, than one's crimes are pre-dispositioned and then we could say that it isn't their fault, it's how they were made. This of course opens up Pandora's Box because we are all supposed to be equal under the law - but how can we be once we admit that we are not ALL EQUAL to start with. That's a catch-22 for the politically correct isn't it? Yes, but maybe we ought to discuss this a bit, as it was a topic of conversation at our think tank, where we pride ourselves in knowing; No Topic Is Off Limits. So, let's talk shall we?

We Have A Real Problem With Gender Psychology Based Research Funding In America
Many have stated that previously underrepresented minorities in our society were passed over when there were research studies on health, psychology, or in the social science of society. However, today if you search just about any topic of Google Scholar immediately in the results will be "gender and minority" based studies, in a greater percentage than studies of non-minorities or studies that are fully inclusive based on averages. It's as if you cannot find what you are looking for, as there are so many of these minority and gender based studies? Why? Political Correctness of course, let me explain.

Psychological Paranoia - A Theory As To Why Many High IQ Brains Suffer From Such Things
Higher IQ people are more apt to suffer from psychological paranoia - but why? Could it be that they have such large memories and memories which are so vivid that they pick up subtle nuances, patterns and anomalies easier and try to make meaning of it all?

Before You Claim Moral Superiority Over Your Goodness And Empathy - Think On This
Many people persecute the philosophy of the late Ayn Rand and her Objectivism Theories. I am not one of them. In Ayn Rand's Philosophy she states that people naturally do what is in their best interests, even when they help others. Inherently, people help others due to the psychological reality of reciprocity and because it makes them feel good to help others.

Misdiagnosis of Schizophrenia & Other Mental Disorders
In this article we will examine why clinicians diagnose serious mental illnesses and why misdiagnosis is a common factor in the process. Looking at the definitions of schizophrenia and labelling as an incidence of laziness, misunderstanding, poor training and guidance from the psycho-pharmaceutical industry to sell powerful money making drugs for life. To remind ourselves as clinicians that mental illness labels are not real, but a cluster of symptoms, that describe a persons perception of reality to enable directed treatment and internal psychiatric discussion with familiar terms that mean something to the treating doctors.

We will also cover briefly and in context the idea of termination, of having an unplanned miscarriage and sudden infant death including infanticide of children in a further paper to be published.

Psychology is the scientific study of the human mind, its functions and development. Our mind is an enigmatic organ that holds within itself the secrets of the universe. This brain also controls our entire body from the time it is created till the time it dies. The reason we are who we are can be attributed largely to our mind and its functioning. To understand this working and uncover who we are as people and know ourselves and the people around us better, is the main motto of psychology. People who practice this science are called psychologists.

This way you will understand how those who are around you behave if they are not afraid of you, and they forget to wear the social mask that always covers their face when they are with others. Wisdom is painful, but precious.
