Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD)/Expert Profile


Ask A Question

Expertise

Behavior and learning challenges are usually caused by genetic personality traits such as; Restlessness, High Physical, Low Concentration, Wide Tolerance (spaciness), Force (anger), Aggressive, plus others. I can help in either area. As a Personality Manager I am able to read traits from facial and other physical features, but after years of working with people I can also tell about most traits just from the description of behavior.

Experience in the area

35 years experience working with families and individuals, teaching them to understand their own traits and other's traits. I help foster caring and cooperation in families by understanding and celebrate each person's uniqueness, and learning to support one another. Often parenting challenges come from the parent not understand a child's traits, which results in the lack of tools to handle the child effectively. Personality Science gives you the tools to understand the traits that make up ADD, ADHD, and other behavior challenges, to help you manage the child's traits, often without medication; and also helps you teach the child how to manage his own traits. Understanding these traits will make a huge difference in your life!

What do you like about this subject?

PERSONALITY TRAITS ARE BOTH GIFTS AND CHALLENGES. The most wonderful thing is teaching you that your child's challenges are really his gifts in disguise. Each trait has both a positive and negative expression; therefore a positive expression is possible with each negative behavior. This changes the attitude of the whole family.

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

The more people I work with, the more I learn about traits and how to work with them more effectively. I hope, through my books, teaching, and consulting, to help everyone celebrate each person's uniqueness, create better understanding of self and others, and learn valuable skills in effectively handling traits in themselves and others.

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

Applied Personality Science developed in the 30's, did not take hold because of psychotherapy and environmentally caused behavior. The truth is that traits are genetic--about 80% of behavior, and we choose how to behave. You no longer have to feel guilty about the obnoxious or quirky behavior of your child; those can be handled with Personality Science. With Personality Science.

Something controversial or provocative about this subject

IS MEDICATION THE ANSWER TOAD/ADHD? There are those who benefit from keeping our children on medication. Unfortunately, that puts pressure on parents to medicate their children. Understanding behavioral traits gives parents an alternative to drugs, more beneficial to the children, but not very popular with those who benefit otherwise.
