SCATTERED MINDS: The Origins and Healing of Attention Deficit Disorder
Scattered Minds is written from the inside by a doctor who himself has Attention Deficit Disorder. It offers a completely new perspective on ADD and a new approach to helping children and adults living with the problems Attention Deficit Disorder presents.
- Demonstrates that ADD is not an inherited illness, but a reversible impairment, a developmental delay
- Explains that in ADD, circuits in the brain whose job is emotional self-regulation and attention control fail to develop in infancy—and why
- Shows how “tuning out” and distractibility are the psychological products of life experience, from in utero onwards
IN THE REALM OF HUNGRY GHOSTS: Close Encounters with Addiction
Blending first-person accounts, riveting case studies, cutting-edge research and passionate argument, In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts takes a panoramic yet highly intimate look at this widespread and perplexing human ailment.
Countering prevailing notions of addiction as either a genetic disease or an individual moral failure, Gabor Maté presents an eloquent case that addiction – all addiction – is in fact a case of human development gone askew.
Co-developer of an innovative therapeutic approach
Gabor Maté is also co-developer of an innovative therapeutic approach. This approach is called Compassionate Inquiry and is an international professional training program with thousands of participants (therapists, physicians, counsellors, and others) from over 80 countries.
This program reveals what lies beneath the appearance we present to the world. Using Compassionate Inquiry, the therapist unveils the level of consciousness, mental climate, hidden assumptions, implicit memories and body states that form the real message that words both express and conceal. Through Compassionate Inquiry, the client can recognize the unconscious dynamics that run their lives and how to liberate themselves from them.
