Bringing Back the Joy in Relationships with ADHD
These ongoing workshops meet on Wednesday Evenings.
Our Next Workshop: January 29th - March 18th, 2020 with a follow up session April 7th.

A marriage is a precious union. But when one partner struggles with ADHD, so does the partner without ADHD. Research shows us that when ADHD is not understood or not treated, it can have a draining effect on a marriage, often leading to separation and divorce. We know that ADHD is not about knowing what to do but how to make things happen. These are very bright and capable individuals. What is missing is the clarity, skills, strategies that and supports that work for ADHD to help rekindle and revitalize a strained relationship.
Marriage Uncomplicated! Bringing back the joy in relationships with ADHD
This program lasts eight weeks for couples where one has ADHD and the other does not. The Center for Living Well with ADHD would like to invite you and your spouse/partner to attend this life-changing eight-week workshop that begins January 29th, 2020. It is an interactive, face-to-face virtual meeting that happens once a week from 7:30pm - 9:00pm eastern time.
In this interactive online workshop, we will discuss and provide the following:
- Explore myths and facts of ADHD
- Recognize how ADHD minds think differently
- Differentiate the roles of ADHD versus the non-ADHD partner
- Learn ways to leverage strengths and tweak lifestyle and habits to help your ADHD
- Build on executive function skills so they become less of a day to day problem.
- Develop skills with a time management system (planner provided) to forget less, accomplish more
- Discover ways to improve communication, compromise and teamwork as a couple
- Learn strategies to address overwhelm, situational anxiety and procrastination so you can move on
- Develop a more positive outlook, boost self-confidence and improve your overall well being
This workshop will also be a part of a research study on couples with ADHD where you will be asked to take surveys before and after the workshop. Couples have been studied for some time, but never through a designated workshop such as this. Of course, all data collected is confidential and participant names become a number to protect your identity.
Your informed consent is very important in research. Participants will need to sign a consent form upon registering that you agree to take this workshop and participate in the study.
How To Register. As a way of showing appreciation for your participation in the study, we are offering a reduced fee of $495 per couple. For one person to attend a similar 8-week workshop, it is $347. For this workshop, the fee for two people attending would be $495. That is $247 per person and a savings of $200. And, we offer an option to pay in full or to make two payments with your registration. Make your selection below to register and get started with the program.
Here are a few you might have:
Q: What's included? Each session includes presenting one or two key topics related to married with ADHD, a coaching activity and a little bit of homework to apply what you learn. You also receive a handout to download and follow along with each session, a planner workbook to practice some time management skills. Each week you will be asked to try a new skill or make important observations that help your relationship. Receive a mid-session check in with your coach to share your progress, ask your questions.
Q: What if I should miss? We encourage you to attend all the sessions, but we know life happens. When it does, let us know and we can make the recording available to you so you don't miss out. We want you to benefit with this program. So we are here to support you when you need us. Just send us an email.
Q: Why is it important for both partners to attend? Both of us realize a healthy, thriving relationship begins with clarity and understanding, learning tools for collaboration, and developing systems to leverage the best of what each of you brings to the relationship. Someone with ADHD needs support, and that includes the partner they are married to.
Q: How might our relationship benefit? What would it be like to ward off angry outbursts, experience less stress, get more things accomplished, have better conversations and experience more peace and joy in your relationship? These for starters are some of the outcomes shared by those who have taken this workshop before you.
