When adults and clinicians think about treating ADHD, they tend to think in terms of medicinal treatments and behavioral therapy for ADHD partners. Yet a critical factor in the ultimate success of an adult with ADHD hinges upon the health of his or her primary spousal relationship. Unfortunately, research suggests that close to 60% of marriages/adult partnerships in which one or both adults has ADHD may be maladjusted, resulting in the primary relationship being an area of significant stress.

This workshop reviews the evidence regarding the impact of ADHD on couples and marriages and presents an overview of treatments and specific strategies that are often effective in improving ADHD-impacted relationships. This workshop requires some basic knowledge of symptoms and impact of ADHD. Intermediate level.
