Theory of Mind and Empathy in Children With ADHD

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/28558473

Quote:
RESULTS:

Children with ADHD showed significantly lower levels of self-reported empathy on most IRI subscales. FPR scores were significantly lower in children with ADHD and were improved, following the administration of MPH, to a level equal to that found in healthy controls.
CONCLUSION:

Children with ADHD show impaired self-reported empathy and FPR when compared with healthy controls. Stimulants improve FPR in children with ADHD to a level equal to that in healthy controls.

Does it mean all social issues in this thread will go away with a pill ?

Re: Theory of Mind and Empathy in Children With ADHD

24 adhd kids and 36 in the controlled group? Hardly a solid long term study IMO. I mean it shows promise but its a fairly small group.

Re: Theory of Mind and Empathy in Children With ADHD

This is replicated stuff

Stimulants show to calm the emotional response of empathy making it easier to take another's perspective

It's not physical empathy that's bad in ADHD. It's the perspective taking. They think cause the emotions of others flood the logic part of the brain. ( that's just my dumb person way of explaining it. Smart people do it better)

I don't get it .

What's "physical empathy" ?
What's "emotional response of empathy" ?

What's empathy in the first place and how can it be measured ?

empathy starts off in as a physical reaction of mirroring another persons emotion (emotional contagion)

by feeling that emotion you can feel it with them, but it should convert (through executive) function of taking tht persons perspective

at that point you console or understand that view, by that you help to regulate their emotion

Re: Theory of Mind and Empathy in Children With ADHD

"Theory of mind" deficits are usually more associated with the autism spectrum than ADHD. I sometimes struggle with perspective taking...... simply because I become distracted and fail to observe the other person's side of something.
