One of the many things I found most impressive about Dr. Hallowell is his positive nature, which is reflected in his therapeutic approach, his talks and his advice.

Dr. Hallowell introduces you to the world of VAST (SM) - Variable Attention Stimulus Trait.

VAST is his new name for an expanded version of ADHD and the title of his next book that he wrote with his partner, John Ratey, coming out in 2020 or 2021.

VAST is for people who may not fit the exact diagnostic criteria for ADHD, but still can benefit from an understanding of what it is and from the various means of dealing with it that we've developed over the past several decades.

Because Dr. Hallowell sees ADHD not as a disorder but as a trait, he feels it is important to describe it in language that does not pathologize the condition.

While ADHD can certainly be incredibly challenging, if it is taken care of properly it can turn a person's life into a life of greatness, a life of joy and a major contribution to the world.In this talk, Dr. Hallowell will explain what VAST consists of, and how we can reframe the challenges of ADHD to change our perception of it for a more positive one.
