Response to The Illusions of Psychiatry
I'm at odds with some of the current conclusions that have been made. I'm not at odds with the pursuit of research and learning, however.
2 of my kids have a similar "ADD temperament" that I have/had. Their experiences of growing up are vastly different than mine however, and as such their results are quite different. How much of that difference is due to nature vs. nurture? How much of that is cultural and social pressures? Do the psychoactive drugs really help an individual, or are they simply a mechanism to force conformity?
I've developed my own opinions on the subject and I'm curious to see the results of ongoing research.
