More and more often, adults are realizing that the reason they are struggling so much in their relationship is that they are impacted by previously undiagnosed adult ADHD. Learning how to interact around ADHD symptoms is often the difference between joy together and chronic anger and frustration. So The Couple’s Guide to Thriving with ADHD lays out the most important strategies couples can use – right now – to rebuild trust, fight less, disagree more productively, get the attention they deserve, and rebuild intimacy in their relationship. These are strategies honed over years of working specifically with couples impacted by ADHD, and demonstrated to change lives for the better. ‘Thrive’ is the go-to book for couples struggling with ADHD who want to actively work to improve their relationship.

From the Author:

This book was born out of my seminar for couples impacted by ADHD.  There were so many interesting questions that couples kept asking!  Over time I realized that they could be grouped into "hot spots" with which many couples struggled.  While the first book (The ADHD Effect on Marriage) introduced couples to what adult ADHD and relationships looks like, there were still these...issues...that kept cropping up.  What do you do when your partner often lies to you?  How do you rebuild trust?  What course of action should you follow if you feel lonely or abandoned because your partner is too distracted?  Or, what happens if your partner never seems to give you a break or is constantly critical?

While couples are inclined to seek help for their partner (as in "please fix my partner!") it is, in fact, always two people who contribute to the relationship problems they have.  That is the definition of a relationship, after all.  This book looks more deeply at those interactions - and helps partners tease apart what is really going on in their own relationship interactions.  I hope you find it helpful!

From the Back Cover:

The Couple's Guide to Thriving with ADHD helps couples move away from their negative emotions and interactions to create a calmer, more loving partnership.  Organized into 21 common emotional Hot Spots, 'Thrive' shows you how to:

  • Diminish frustration and anger
  • Optimize ADHD treatment
  • Learn to trust again
  • Use essential communication skills
  • Revive intimacy and connection
  • Improve reliability, and more
Don't let adult ADHD continue to distort your relationship - opt instead for creating the loving union you've always dreamed of!
