Like so many others, Dr. Alicia Maher spent much of her young life struggling with a short attention span and was often at the mercy of her impulses. During her first year of studying psychiatry as an intern, the doctors she was attending called for an intervention and diagnosed her with ADHD. Compelled to address her condition holistically, Dr. Maher embarked on a 15 year course of study including practicing and teaching academic medicine, maintaining yoga and spiritual practices (even living in a yoga ashram retreat,) and observing medical care during her travels to over 30 countries. Her new book, From Scattered to Centered: Understanding and Transforming the Distracted Brain shows readers how to use the practices she has learned to train their brains for peace and concentration. Completing college and medical school in only 6 years, Dr. Maher has gone on to become the associate director of the Psychiatric Consultation Service of Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and associate professor of psychiatry at UCLA.
