Adults with ADD/ADHD are needed to participate in an Internet study examining emotional responses to pictures. Adults who do not have ADD/ADHD are also needed, to provide a group to compare to. Participants will view a number of photographs and answer a couple of questions about each one; the experiment takes 20-30 minutes to finish.
Participants who complete the on-line experiment can enter a drawing that will offer a 1 in 25 chance of winning a $25 Amazon.com gift card, and will be helping researchers and clinicians to better understand the experiences of adults with ADD/ADHD.
This study has been approved by Pacific University’s IRB. If you’re interested in participating, or would like more information, please visit the study Web site at this link.
This study does not have to do with personal relationships and does not take too long to finish (I have taken it).

The basic progression in the forum here is to find it when in terrible pain, post about that pain, get lots of feedback (helpful and not), work on your relationship (sometimes for years) and resolve. One resolution is to leave your partner. Another is to stay and create a happy relationship. If you are one of the people who has repaired your relationship and sees success, consider paying everyone here back by staying a bit involved with the site and posting about your positive experiences. People here need to hear from those who are successful in their efforts - yet success and happiness lead many to stop visiting and posting. Thanks to Aspen for recently jumping in about the now happy state of her relationship...I urge others, over time, to do the same. I thank you in advance for your contributions!

Zoe Kessler has posted here before and is a regular contributor to PsychCentral. She has just posted an interview with a couple in which the non-ADHD partner describes her appreciation for the ADHD essence of her partner - well worth reading! You can find Zoe's blog and this particular post here. If you have any thoughts about the positive things you see in your partner's ADHD, please feel free to add them to this entry...I, for one, recognized my husband in much of what this woman wrote.

On January 25 I will be giving a 1.5 hour talk for therapists through the therapist website GoodTherapy.org. It is free for members of that site and counts for 1.5 CE credits. To prepare for this, I wrote a blog post about why therapists should get involved in helping couples with ADHD. If you have a therapist you are working with whom you think might be interested in the talk please let them know about this event. Since it's only 1.5 hours long it will simply be an overview...but it's a start!

Couples who are struggling with the impact of ADHD in their relationship will be delighted to hear that I have just completed an in-depth self-study course that can help them turn their marriage around. Based on the live ADHD Effect seminar that I have been giving for several years, the self-study course is designed to help you finally move away from the destructive patterns you've developed in your relationship - even if you feel you're really in a rut. It's an intensive course - including seven lectures, notes pages, worksheets, homework and specific readings all designed to move you from where you are now to a better, more caring and less ADHD-impacted relationship.
This is a course that changes lives, and now you can do it at your own pace. (Read more below) >>> Read more >>>
