The Power of Neurodiversity: Unleashing the Advantages of Your Differently Wired Brain provides evidence about the positive features of mental conditions traditionally viewed as negative, from bipolar disorder and depression to autism and ADHD. It charts the special powers that accompany these conditions, from creativity and entrepreneurial skills to other assets, and posits the need to use a new neurodiversity model to embrace both assets and problems in mental health and strengths. Employer, parents and other receive concrete strategies to making the most of a neurodiverse brain, from career options to assistive technologies. Any psychology holding needs this!
