Promotional Information

'Timimi manages to pack a wealth of information into this book that is guaranteed to add value to any professional's knowledge base, both in terms of theoretical argument and practical application...This is one book that should adorn the book shelves of all those involved in helping children and families to cope with and manage difficult behaviour.' - Terence Edwards, Kairaranga 'For all of use who are worried about how social problems become medicalised, this is an essential read. It is not just a book about naughty boys'. - Peter Wilson, Mental Health Today 'Readers with sons of ADHD medication may dislike hearing all this. But there is now abundant evidence that the drugs have massive side effects and in many cases are just not needed. Timimi describes how using psychological treatments has meant he hardly ever has to employ them and the scientific case for chemical free treatment grows stronger by the day.' - Oliver James, Life and Health
