Dr. Alan Sroufe used to believe that Ritalin was as necessary for children suffering from attention deficit disorder as insulin is for diabetics. Over the last 40 years of reviewing the drugs, however, his position has changed, and he believes that these drugs are dangerously over-prescribed. Dr. Sroufe, who is Professor Emeritus of Psychology at the University of Minnesota’s Institute of Child Development, joins us to discuss his research and his New York Times op-ed Ritalin Gone Wrong.
