"President Trump embodies a condition that affects millions of Americans (ADHD) – yet is poorly understood and often undiagnosed."
SAN FRANCISCO, CA, September 04, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Psychiatrist and neuroscientist John Kruse will discuss his new book, "Recognizing Adult ADHD: What Donald Trump Can Teach Us About Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder," September 14 in San Francisco.
Dr. Kruse will read from and sign copies of his book from 3:00 to 4:30 p.m. at Book Passage in the San Francisco Ferry Building, One, #42, San Francisco, CA 94111. The event is free and open to the public.
Millions of American adults suffer from undiagnosed and untreated Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. They are two or three times more likely than the general population to be involved in serious car accidents, to be incarcerated, and to get divorced (if they marry). In his provocative new book, Dr. Kruse sheds light on the problem by focusing on how President Trump's behavior exemplifies the condition.
With a doctorate degree in basic neuroscience and an active psychiatric practice, Dr. Kruse throws cold water on the "Goldwater rule," which prohibits psychiatrists from giving professional opinions about public figures without personally conducting an examination. The president, he says, embodies a condition that affects millions of Americans – yet is poorly understood and often undiagnosed.
Dr. Kruse wrote his book "to help people who might not otherwise be thinking about ADHD, to consider whether it pertains to them or someone important in their life." He also aims to "help make President Trump's erratic behavior more understandable" and explain "why we bother to make diagnoses and why psychiatry exists."
His ultimate goal, he says, is to "deepen our understanding of, and empathy for, those individuals with the complex and potentially disabling condition of adult ADHD."
