Workshop Description

Adults with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) are over-represented in therapy, especially couples therapy, because of the many ways that it can impact relationship and sexual functioning. ADHD is a neurologically based information processing disorder. It has significant psychological effects on self-perception and interaction with others, specifically affecting the romantic partner. ADHD can make the relationship and sex life much less satisfying for both partners, yet it tends to respond well to the right treatments.

This workshop will be based on original research conducted by Dr. Tuckman on how ADHD can impact a couple’s sexual and relationship satisfaction. He will share the results of that research, including: what separates the most and least satisfied couples, how ADHD impacts sexuality, how gender intersects with ADHD, and which treatments were found to be most effective.

The symptoms of ADHD will be reviewed, including a deeper, more useful conceptual model of ADHD. The many ways that ADHD impacts an individual and couple will be covered. Finally, practical strategies are offered for treating individual and couple therapy clients to help partners understand each other better, resolve differences, and get their needs met more effectively. This process will support both partners’ differentiation and growth, promoting a more intimate relationship and better sex life.

 

Workshop Level – Intermediate
