James Greenblatt, MD
A pioneer in the field of integrative medicine, James M. Greenblatt MD has treated patients with complex behavioral and mood disorders since 1990. After receiving his medical degree from George Washington University School of Medicine, Dr. Greenblatt completed his psychiatry residency at George Washington University Medical Center. Dr. Greenblatt went on to pursue a two year fellowship at John Hopkins University School of Medicine to become board certified in child and adolescent psychiatry where he also served as the Chief Resident.
Dr. Greenblatt noticed the current treatment model in psychiatry relied solely upon symptom-based recommendations for medication with little consideration for the biochemical individuality or the underlying biological mechanisms that may be contributing or causing symptoms. This prompted Dr. Greenblatt to develop an outpatient clinic, Comprehensive Psychiatric Resources, which provided patient-centered care for families with children struggling with ADHD and other behavioral disorders. Dr. Greenblatt was one of the very few physicians at that time who knew how to utilize nutritional interventions to help patients achieve relief from their symptoms. His work in the 1990’s was years ahead of his time, as the field of psychiatry had not yet understood how genetics, nutrition, and biochemistry played a role in an individual’s mental wellbeing. Dr. Greenblatt’s expertise in integrative medicine attracted patients from all across the world seeking consultations for complex mood, behavioral, and eating disorders.
Dr. Greenblatt currently serves as the Chief Medical Officer at Walden Behavioral Care in Waltham, MA and serves as an Assistant Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at Tufts University School of Medicine and Dartmouth College Geisel School of Medicine.
Finally Focused: The Breakthrough Natural Treatment Plan for ADHD
Your ADHD child has a medical disorder, not a discipline problem. Your child is not a bad child. You are not a bad parent. Your child’s disorder can be diagnosed and treated, producing remarkable results. And the secret to your child’s treatment is just what you and every other parent knows at heart: your child is a unique child, one-of-a-kind. And just as your child has a unique pattern of strengths, your child has a unique pattern of biological weaknesses—and they have to be detected and corrected. Then what you want most for your child will happen: happiness and success.
Finally Focused is that conversation. This book provides the knowledge and tools every parent can use—ideally, in partnership with a doctor—to provide true wellness for their child.
