  • "Become aware"

    Overall

    As I'm not yet a parent I picked up the book as I was interested in neuroscience. I was not disappointed and even got more than I bargained for. Medina is a gifted communicator, entertainer, and educator. The book has genuine laugh out loud moments but also makes you think. You will never look at learning in the same way, and will be more aware of the rationale for certain parenting styles and decisions.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    clearly delivered message for all counsellors or professionals working with families formed through adoption. indeed equally very interesting for parents


    What did you like best about this story?

    Dee Paddock brings both personal and profession experience and is obviously passionate about the subject and the need for 'adoption competance' in professionals.


    What about Blake Stiles’s performance did you like?

    Dee Paddock delivered this audio book herself and is an excellent speaker.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    All of it.


    Any additional comments?

    Because it is a recording of a workshop given by Dee Paddock it is not always possible to fully hear questions from the audience and so you miss the question but do hear Ms Paddock's answer. Do not let this put you off, it is the answers and the content and Dee's strong clear delivery that make this book a must have for all professionals dealing with adoption related clients and all parents who need to seek out professionals to help with any problems.

    Where does Back to Normal rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Excellent. The reader speaks with a natural fluency that makes it very easy to listen to and concentrate on. The content was clearly explained, well categorised and full of examples to make it 'come alive'. This is a book I would have really struggled to read and concentrate on but I very much wanted to read. Having it in Audio format is wonderful. I feel I have hung on every word and learned a lot.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Back to Normal?

    Many. Too many to mention. Mostly that I could understand behaviours and features of my own clients, clients from the past, and my own children and my own childhood behaviours as he described clinical features.

    A veteran clinical psychologist exposes why doctors, teachers, and parents incorrectly diagnose healthy American children with serious psychiatric conditions. In recent years there has been an alarming rise in the number of American children and youth assigned a mental health diagnosis. Current data from the Centers for Disease Control reveal a 41 percent increase in rates of ADHD diagnoses over the past decade and a forty-fold spike in bipolar disorder diagnoses. Similarly, diagnoses of autism spectrum disorder has increased by 78 percent since 2002.
