MURFREESBORO — An MTSU alumnus will take a nontraditional approach to attention deficit hyperactivity disorder on the next “MTSU On the Record” radio program.
Host Gina Logue’s interview with Terry M. Huff, author of “Living Well with ADHD,” will air from 5:30 to 6 p.m. Monday, March 21, and from 8 to 8:30 a.m. Sunday, March 27, on WMOT-FM (89.5 and www.wmot.org).
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. However, he came to realize that conventional treatment of ADHD does not facilitate progress.
“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.
