The DearShrink.com Mission.
In addition to furnishing visitors, potential clients, and clients with information about Dr. Sterling and his private practice of psychiatry, it is the mission of DearShrink.com to provide a Web site experience which is highly educational and which will assist in reducing the stigma attached to many aspects of the mental health treatment environment.
To do this, Dr. Sterling, a fully-licensed physician in the State of Washington, assembled this Web site starting in 2000. Its mission was to provide resources of interest to anyone who seeks well-presented information about human psychology, behavior, personal growth, psychiatry and psychotherapy.
However, since 2009, Dr. Sterling's focus has been on reading primary research literature and becoming comprehensively informed on the huge amount of knowledge that has been gained about the downside and upside of the attention deficit disorder brain since 2008. He has read in excess of 20,000 pages of primary literature since 2009 and published two editions of his book Adult ADD Factbook -- The Truth About Adult Attention Deficit Disorder Updated 2011 and 2013. They are available on Amazon.com.
The scope of Dr. Sterling's reading and writing has made it impossible to continue the former mission of DearShrink.com, which was to provide readers with a broader collection of and links to mental health and wellness information. The many outdated pages still contain original writing by Dr. Sterling that has stood the test of recent time. However, over the next few months, Dr. Sterling will be dismantling and remodeling most of the DearShrink.com website.
