9781886941977: The ADHD Effect on Marriage: Understand and Rebuild Your Relationship in Six Steps

Awarded "Best Psychology Book of 2010" by ForeWord Reviews, this book is an invaluable resource for couples in which one of the partners suffers from Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).  It authoritatively guides couples in troubled marriages towards an understanding and appreciation for the struggles and triumphs of a relationship affected by ADHD, and to look at the disorder in a more positive and less disruptive way. Going beyond traditional marriage counseling which can often discount the influence of ADHD, this straight-forward discussion offers advice from the author's personal experience and years of research and identifies patterns of behavior that can hurt marriages —such as nagging, intimacy problems, sudden anger, and memory issues —through the use of vignettes and descriptions of actual couples and their ADHD struggles and solutions. This resource encourages both spouses to become active partners in improving their relationship and healing the fissures that ADHD can cause. Also included are worksheets and various methods for difficult conversations so that couples can find a technique that fits their unique relationship and improve their communication skills.

From the Inside Flap:

"This book provides an incredibly valuable service to those struggling in a marriage with ADHD.  Written by someone who has been there and knows firsthand how ADHD can disrupt a marriage, it will help couples truly understand ADHD, realize they are not alone, and teach them what specifically can be done to align together as a team to turn things around.  Ms. Orlov has done a wonderful job of providing knowledge, awareness, and hope to those who sorely need it."      -Kevin Murphy, PhD, co-author of ADHD in Adults: What the Science Says "The ADHD Effect is an exceptional book that addresses the complexity of the relationship between partners whose lives are affected by ADHD while presenting sound family system principles in an easy-to-understand and accessible way...I would highly recommend this book to my clients, their partners, and to couple therapists who want to learn to effectively guide couples in marriages challenged by The ADHD Effect."      -Sari Solden, MS, LMFT, author of Journeys Through ADDulthood "Orlov's work is a beacon of light and hope, offering strategies that help couples feel happier and more satisfied."      -Ari Tuckman, PsyD, MBA, author of More Attention, Less Deficit

From the Back Cover:

"Why wait until your therapist tells you to buy this book?  Buy it now and save yourselves a lot of pain and money.  This book will help you make your ADHD marriage work better so you can both have a happy, healthy lifetime of love."      -Jonathan Scott Havlerstadt, LMFT, author of ADD & Romance
