Free Webinar Replay: “My Partner Has ADHD?!” 5 Strategies for Living Happily After a Diagnosis
In this hour-long webinar-on-demand, learn how ADHD impacts your marriage with Melissa Orlov.
Is ADHD affecting your marriage? Many adults are receiving ADHD diagnoses later in life, so it is often shocking for couples to discover that attention deficit disorder has been a major influence on their relationship journey all along. A diagnosis can explain, finally, all those struggles over household chores, arguments at the kitchen table, and daily misunderstandings over small things. It can foster better understanding of the idiosyncrasies you thought were a normal part of your relationship, and help chart a way forward.
As you learn about all the ways that ADHD affects your partner, you can develop strategies to make peace with the diagnosis and each other — like communicating more clearly, moving toward relationship goals, and realizing that your partner is more than a diagnosis or a set of symptoms.
In this webinar, you will learn:
- Which strategies have the most immediate impact on your relationship
- Why there’s so much frustration and anger, and how to tame it
- The role that ADHD treatment does — and does not — play in your relationship success
- How to set measurable, realistic goals to achieve progress
- The most important change each of you can make to feel — and act — like partners again
- Communication strategies that work relationship wonders
