The world of relationships and relationship conflict has been an acquaintance by default of Steve Meade in his professional practice as a school psychologist. Psychologists inherit much more than their client’s brief – they inherit generational and contextual elements that go far beyond the referral. Meade has obviously encountered his fair share of relationship challenges in his work with children, and his involvement of parents in every aspect of the intervention process has meant he has had to work closely with all stakeholders, many of whom don’t exactly see eye-to-eye with others in the child’s equation. The dynamic nature of human interaction makes for an intriguing read that taps into much of Meade’s expanding volumes on Reactivity and Executive Function.

“Psychology is about listening to what clients tell you. Great psychology is about listening to what they don’t tell you!” As the world grapples with the fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic, Steve Meade delves further into the realms of psychological functioning and reactivity from the ground up. Using the backdrop of 2020’s global crisis, he explains the societal and individual response to environment as he methodically exposes the human response to stress, load, and pressure. Placing the psychiatric fraternity front and centre, he presents the prevailing view of mood disorders, including depression, anxiety, and anger, as being a short term alleviation of presentation symptoms rather than a problem origin view aimed at correcting behavioural foundations. He specifically addresses the contribution of cerebral blood flow ratios to reactivity, and identifies simple methods that enables individuals to ‘switch’ between their cognitive and reactive systems.

The global focus on Executive Function has resulted in large volumes of research and psychological intervention presenting many (often divergent) views of this elusive neural construct. Researchers, Ostrosky and Gurtierrez stated in their 2019 paper, ‘Neurological Assessment of Executive Function’, that the accurate measuring of Executive Function is not drawing unified consensus or definition due to a diversity of conceptual and theoretical approaches. Steve Meade has been addressing the foundations of Executive Function in his private practice since 2011, and in his growing compendium of books on ‘Reactivity’. As he disseminates current explanations of the topic, readers can expect to be challenged on their current views of Executive Function development, as well as the societal and familial contributors necessary for it to effectively control and regulate behaviour.
