Russell Barkley explains ADHD



This is a collection of clips, with subtitles in Norwegian, where Russell Barkley speaks about the motivation, emotion, behavior, hyperactivity, attention, accountability and focus aspects of ADD/ADHD. Barkley recounts the latest research in the field, and this video can be a good tool for explaining the disorder to parents, teachers and even physicians and therapists.

Misinformation about this disorder is extremely widespread, even in the medical community, and ADD/ADHD sufferers are often misdiagnosed with other disorders, such as personality disorder or depression.

If you're convinced that you're suffering from ADHD, take this screening test: http://www.hcp.med.harvard.edu/ncs/ftpdir/adhd/18%20Question%20ADHD-ASRS-v1-1.pdf

Be completely honest. Give the questions some careful thought. Don't check the "Often" or "Very Often" boxes unless you're confident that you are experiencing these issues more frequently than what's usual among your friends, family, coworkers or classmates. Do not use take test unless you are a legal adult (different diagnostic criteria apply for children and teenagers), and remember that it is only a screening test.

If you test positive, get referred to a professional, but realize that regular therapists or psychiatrists won't do in many cases, since their knowledge is often outdated by decades, and they still see the disorder as an inattention and hyperactivity problem. Just seek out a specialist immediately if possible. Otherwise, prepare to argue with numerous uninformed therapists, who in turn will label you as a difficult patient. Doctors, too, have egos, and they do not like it one bit when patients are better informed than them.

Humble chief gains national attention

Source

MCCONNELL AIR FORCE BASE, Kan. (AFPN) -- All of the attention embarrasses him, but as this chief master sergeant learned recently, a lifetime of caring and good deeds is bound to catch up with you eventually. 

Chief Master Sgt. John Gebhardt, superintendent of the 22nd Wing Medical Group here, recently gained worldwide attention for a photo of him holding an injured Iraqi child. The photo was taken about a month ago, while he was deployed to Balad Air Base in Iraq. 


Compassion Chief
Chief Master Sgt. John Gebhardt cradles a young Iraqi girl as they both sleep in the hospital. The girl's entire family was executed by insurgents. The killers shot her in the head but she survived. The girl received treatment at the U.S. military hospital in Balad, but cries often. According to nurses at the facility, Chief Gebhardt is the only one who can calm down the girl, so he holds her at night while they both sleep in a chair.

The young infant had received extensive gunshot injuries to her head when insurgents attacked her family killing both of her parents and many of her siblings. The chief had a knack for comforting her and they often would catch a cat nap together in a chair. 

Now, he is back at home in Wichita, Kan., with his wife, Mindy. They have a warm, hospitable home five minutes away from McConnell Air Force Base. His son Ryan, 25, and daughter Amber, 23, have long since outgrown being cradled and he said he thought about them constantly while he held the Iraqi child. 

"I got as much enjoyment out of it as the baby did," he said. "I reflected on my own family and life and thought about how lucky I have been." 

His affection for children is no secret to his wife, Mindy. While dating John in high school, she watched how he bonded with the child of a coach of one of his athletic teams. That softer side of him is one of the reasons she married him. 

"People see him as this tough guy," she said, "but I always see that other side of him that is full of compassion." 

The chief, who grew up in Jordan, New York, is not at home in the spotlight. When asked to talk about himself, he always tries to switch the focus to the other military people who served with him at Balad. 

While deployed to Iraq, the chief tried to help out any way he could. He figured holding a baby that needed comforting that would free up one more set of arms that could be providing care to more critical patients. 

"If I have an opportunity to help out, I look for that opportunity," he said. "They had more than enough to do." 

The chief was not alone in volunteering at the hospital. There were more than 800 different volunteers at the hospital during the time he was deployed to Iraq, he said. Some of them volunteered so much that he mistakenly thought they were assigned to the hospital. 

When Mindy describes the best qualities of her husband, the first word out of her mouth is integrity. She said the photo of her husband and the Iraqi child truly represents him. She believes he has been so successful because he is such a straight-shooter and puts others' welfare ahead of his own. 

"He never leads anyone astray," she said. "He will never do something for himself that would have a negative effect on someone else. He always tells it like it is." 

But, the chief attributes his success to his family. 

"Without their support I don't know where I would be," he said. "I definitely wouldn't be in the position I am." 

And it is the chief's hope that families in Iraq will receive the same kind of support in the future.  They are just like American families, Chief Gebhardt said. 

"I pray for the best for the Iraqi children," he said. "I can't tell the difference between their kids and our kids. The Iraqi parents have the same care and compassion for their children as any American." 

Life is calmer for Chief Gebhardt now that he is back home, and even though his recent "fame" has highlighted an eventful 27-year career, he said he wouldn't change a thing. 

"If I had to do it over again, I would sign up and give it another ride," he said.
