Ned Hallowell, M.D., is a child and adult psychiatrist, NY Times bestselling author, world-renowned speaker and leading authority in the field of ADHD. He was a faculty member at Harvard Medical School from 1983 to 2004, graduated from Harvard College and Tulane School of Medicine, and is the founder of The Hallowell Centers for Cognitive and Emotional Health in Boston, New York City and San Francisco. These centers offer comprehensive mental health diagnostic and treatment services to patients and their families.

A specialist in learning differences, Hallowell’s ground-breaking books, “Driven to Distraction and Delivered from Distraction,” co-authored with Dr. John Ratey, brought Attention Deficit Disorder to the general public and have sold millions of copies. With decades of experience working with people who have ADHD,  Hallowell has long argued that ADHD is too often misunderstood, mistreated, and mislabeled as a “disability” and that the gifts of this condition are easily lost amid negative comments.

He is also a revered authority on lifelong personal betterment and fulfillment and has authored 19 books on various psychological topics including the power of the human connection, the childhood roots of happiness, how to manage your “crazybusy” life, how to deal with worry, how to forgive and how to run organizations so every employee achieves at his or her peak performance. Hallowell’s latest book, “Driven to Distraction at Work,” details how to focus in the modern, highly charged and distracted workplace.
