Hey there everyone,
Welcome to the first installment of Dr. Don’s blog, where we’ll be talking about stuff that’s going on as we try to launch both my book “Getting Unstuck: Unraveling the Knot of Attention Depression and Trauma, and a group therapy program based on the material that’s inside the book. The book will be available in June, for now you can download the first chapter from this site if you’d like. The exact start of the group therapy program will announced in a few months; meanwhile we’ll be gathering the names of folks who are interested in more information about it.
This is an exciting week for a number of reasons. First of all, we are launching our new website TheAttentionDoctor.com, where this week you can find some articles on mindfulness meditation training research done at UCLA and on a interesting book written by a childhood friend of mine, Jeff Brooks, about martial arts and meditation.
Second, I’ll be giving a talk this week at the Manhattan Adult ADD Support Group (maaddsg.org), on Thursday night at 6:30 p.m. at the Seafarer’s Hall on 15th Street and Irving Place in Manhattan. I’ll be presenting material from the book on the interaction of ADD with mood and trauma and about how it should be treated.
I hope to see some of you there.
