News from the ACO

Helping Clients Avoid Bad Therapists
President Joyce Kubik writes, “Recently, ADDitude Magazine published a slide show on The Ten Worst Therapists for Adults. I immediately flashed back to my misdiagnosis in 1983 of Bipolar and spent nearly 10 years on Lithium.” Read more here.

Ron Bashian, MD, Guest Contributor, writes "On January 7, my web designer sent me two startling links. The first link was to inform me about a book titled ADHD Does Not Exist that was about to be published in the US. The second link was to a strongly approving essay in Psychology Today.” Read more here.
