There's a lot to work through and think about when you are married to a partner with ADHD. These support groups for non-ADHD partners are given by conference call and led by Melissa Orlov. Each session focuses on one or two topics a week that are submitted by group members for in-depth exploration. Participants support each other, explore their biggest issues and most pressing problems, and get advice from Melissa - and from each other - each week. The objectives of the support group are to: have you be part of a community of people exploring similar issues; learn from each other's successes and struggles; and find new, more effective ways to be your best self in your relationship. Melissa and other group participants will help you develop strategies for finding satisfaction and happiness.
Logistics and Dates
THE APRIL GROUPS ARE OPEN FOR REGISTRATION. THE NEXT SESSIONS AFTER APRIL WILL BEGIN IN THE FALL OF 2020. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO BE NOTIFIED FOR FUTURE SUPPORT GROUPS, PLEASE CONTACT MELISSA.
The groups are run via conference call and last one hour. Melissa picks a topic for the day, or requests the group discuss a recent development in one person's life. Both types of groups are limited to 10 participants - enough people to get a good conversation going, but not so many that you can't speak up. It will be recorded for the confidential use of participants in case they have a conflict.
READ CAREFULLY AND PLEASE MAKE SURE TO REGISTER FOR THE GROUP YOU WISH TO ATTEND!
