Bringing Back the Joy in Relationships with ADHD
These ongoing workshops meet on Wednesday Evenings.
Our Next Workshop: January 22nd - March 11th, 2020 with a follow up session April 7th.

A marriage is a precious union. But when one spouse struggles with ADHD, so does the spouse 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.
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 to attend this life-changing eight-week workshop that begins October 2nd, 2019. It is an interactive, face-to-face virtual meeting that happens once a week from 7:30pm - 9:00pm eastern time. It will end on November 20th, skipping November 7 as we will be at the ADHD Conference in Philadelphia.
In this interactive online course we will discuss and provide the following:
- Explore myths and facts of ADHD
- Recognize how ADHD minds think differently
- Differentiate the role of the non ADHD spouse
- Assess and learn how leveraging strengths helps ADHD
- Understand executive function and ways to strengthen capabilities
- Build on new time management strategies and skills (planner provided)
- Discover how to improve communication, compromise and teamwork as a couple
- Learn strategies to address feelings of overwhelm, situational anxiety and procrastination
- Improve on a positive sense of self and well being
- Each week you will be asked to try a skill or make important observations.
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.
