An MTSU alumnus is taking a nontraditional approach to attention deficit hyperactivity disorder on a recent edition of the “MTSU On the Record” radio program.
Host Gina Logue’s interview with Terry M. Huff, author of “Living Well with ADHD,” first aired March 21 on WMOT-FM (89.5 and www.wmot.org ). You can listen to their conversation below.
Huff, a licensed clinical social worker who practices in Nashville, earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in social work at MTSU before working with people with mental health and developmental disabilities in the early years of his career.
Diagnosed with ADHD himself in 1994, Huff turned his private practice to the treatment of others with the disorder.
He came to realize, however, that conventional treatment of ADHD does not make progress any easier.
“I think we need to change our language a little bit and think about concepts that point in a direction like ‘activating your attention’ … and to create conditions where you can sustain your effort and keep the wheels on the track so you can finish what you start,” Huff said.
