My Mood: article about the infamous Hallowell...

Default article about the infamous Hallowell...

Police: Accused Sudbury doctor does not dispute victim's claims - News - MetroWest Daily News, Framingham, MA - Framingham, MA
I have never been a fan of this doctor and it always rubs me the wrong way when people revere him or go by his classifications to self diagnose adhd or even if a doctor uses it to diagnose adhd. I was looking for a wiki article on him and stumbled on this. Does anyone know if there is truth to it? I think he is a self professed "expert" who does not understand the disorder as much as he thinks he does. When I did find a wiki article about him the article was listed as having multiple issues and stated that he blames adhd in the US on the fact that he thinks the US is so violent. Since when did a disorder like adhd become the result of a violent culture? And if this article is true it makes me trust him less than I did before.

Thank you for sharing this article, sarahsweets! From what you wrote, he doesn't sound like a very good doctor. But I could be wrong, I'm not very informed about this. Sending many hugs to you
