Rethinking Psychiatry presents Steve McCrea, MS, author and child advocate, for an interactive evening as he shares his journey raising active, intense, challenging children to adulthood.
Steve will provide perspectives based on personal and professional experience (including scientific research) on challenging questions like:
- What does the research say about ADHD?
- Is ADHD a mental disorder or are there other ways to understand it? Which explanations help our children most?
- Does stimulant treatment make things better or worse in the long term?
- What else can be done to help active, intense & adventurous children to thrive?
