If you’re at this site, chances are that you are looking for all the help you can get to improve your ADHD-affected relationship. A great resource for this is my upcoming couples seminar which STARTS JANUARY 4th – only a few short weeks away! If you are like those who took the course this fall, in seven calls you are likely to see surprising improvements in your relationship. At a minimum, you’ll have a far deeper understanding of the issues that you face and some of your options for dealing with them.
Dr. Ned Hallowell and I have both been asked by the editors of Psychology Today to join their ranks of bloggers. Today I created my first post there, titled "ADHD Isn't Just for Kids - Adults Feel Big Impact in Marriage." It's an overview to introduce readers to the basics of why one should be paying attention to adult ADHD. For those of you who have "curious minds," take a peek at the wide variety of offerings at the Psychology Today site home page - some very interesting ideas explored there.
I was interviewed last week on public radio about ADHD and its impact on marriage. You can listen to the interview at this link. It's about 12 minutes long - click on the "listen" button to the right of the picture. Enjoy!
Dr. Hallowell and Dr. Oz did a terrific job introducing people to the idea that ADHD might be affecting their marriage. Watch this video, take the short quiz it includes, and see how you and your partner stack up. Go to this link.
This Thursday, Sept. 16, Dr. Hallowell will be on the Dr. Oz show talking about ADHD and how it impacts marriages. Hope you get to see it! To find out what time this show airs in your area, please go to this link!
A gentle reminder to those of you out there who are considering signing up for my upcoming seminar for couples interested in improving their marriage - the seminar starts this coming Monday, Sept. 13th. It's going to be an outstanding, positive, informative experience for both partners and will help you open doors you didn't even know were there. The program runs 7 consecutive Mondays from 7:30-8:30 eastern time, by phone. For more information, go to this link.
We get enough comments and questions about porn addiction and the use of porn by those who have ADHD that I asked some of the coaches at Recovery Nation (an organization that helps people overcome their porn and sex addictions) to write an overview of the topic. They have graciously complied with my request, for which I thank them. Their overview includes how to know if you have a sex addiction, what to do if you suspect you have a sex addiction, and seven good links for further reading. You can find it in our resources section, here.
Today, Sept. 1, is the official release date for my book, The ADHD Effect on Marriage and I'm celebrating! For those of you who are waiting to receive it, thanks for your patience! Though Amazon has been having trouble keeping up with the orders, I notice that Barnes and Nobles has it in stock both online and in many of their local stores. Please spread the word about the book with those you love! Note that I will be giving some talks - right now I'm planning east coast (October), plus Chicago (November).
I am delighted to announce that I will be giving a seven week seminar starting September 13th for those couples interested in going more in-depth into how to apply the ideas in The ADHD Effect on Marriage to their relationship. The seminar is not a reiteration of the book. Rather, it is designed to augment the book, answering questions that you may still have. I hope it will provide a way for couples whom I cannot fit into my consulting schedule to be able to ask questions and utilize my ideas effectively. For more information,
