Navigating ADHD Dynamics in Couples Therapy

June 5 @ 1:00 pm - 4:30 pm EDT



Therapists, discover how to effectively address Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in couples therapy and enhance your practice with this workshop tailored for mental health professionals, including couples therapists.

ADHD’s heterogeneity often makes it challenging for therapists to identify and integrate appropriate treatment strategies — individuals diagnosed with ADHD can present with a wide range of symptoms and severity levels. Understanding this heterogeneity is crucial for effective treatment planning. In addition, misinformation abounds, leaving therapists uncertain about the efficacy of their interventions.

In this workshop, we delve into the under-recognized and under-diagnosed aspects of ADHD in adults globally. Gain insights into the heritability of ADHD, its impact on relationships, and its association with developmental and attachment trauma. Uncover the unique challenges faced by couples where ADHD is undiagnosed or unmanaged and learn why a neurodivergent-affirming approach is crucial for effective therapy.

Course Highlights:

  • Identify Brain-Driven Behaviours: Explore the involuntary brain-driven behaviours that often challenge the couples therapeutic process.
  • Integrate Relational Neurobiology: Learn how to seamlessly integrate relational neurobiology into your chosen couples therapy modality using the AECT Model of Practice: ADHD Experiential Couples Therapy.
  • Coordinate Care Confidently: Develop skills to coordinate care with other practitioners, fostering a comprehensive and supportive approach.
  • Provide Hope Anchored in Science: Discover how to offer hope for the future, grounded in scientific understanding and healthy attachment principles.
