Embracing A.D.D., a Healing Perspective

Embracing A.D.D., A Healing Perspective, showcases a source of energy never before harnessed. Instead of being disordered with gut-wrenching feelings of, “There’s something wrong with me,” you can learn to reframe your perspective of Attention Deficit Disorder (an Analogue Processing BrainStyle) in a way that makes you and others valuable and you can begin to understand how the world will be a better place when people with an A.D.D. BrainStyle are valued, full participants in our culture.

Embracing A.D.D., A Healing Perspective, is written by Lynn Weiss, Ph.D, a storyteller, field researcher, and memoir writer who uses real people’s experiences in order to tell the story of A.D.D. You are likely to meet yourself or someone you love or work with in the book’s pages.

Your first encounters in the book will be with those who are called The Wounded You. They are the ones who have been hurt because of being raised with the idea that there is something wrong with them.

Next you’ll learn about the healing of such wounding, which opens the door for an exploration of the True You, that wonderful “perfect for you” way in which you were born that makes you unique and valuable. Guided by examples of the many faces of A.D.D., you’ll come to discover your very own identity as you were always meant to express, learn by, and function.

Finally, you’ll be shown how to return to the mixed world of Diverse BrainStyles as a team player who brings what our society needs to become balanced; a world in which different people work together with no one losing.

Be prepared to see reflections of your life in Embracing A.D.D., A Healing Perspective, available now through the following booksellers:
