Class 1: 10:00 AM EST
Kids, teens, and young adults with ADHD can put parents (and therapists) in a bind—should they be given more oversight to ensure success or more freedom to learn on their own? Author and international speaker Ari Tuckman, PsyD will explain the many ways that ADHD executive function deficits impact family life and the strategies are most effective for managing these additional struggles. You will learn how to help these families navigate the daily challenges more effectively in order to reduce conflict, foster understanding of ADHD, and support agency to prepare young adults for launching into college and beyond. This will take the therapist out of the middle of the endless tug of wars and give them a framework to help these families.
Class 2: 1:45 PM EST
One out of eleven couples has one partner with ADHD which can impact not only the individual, but also makes certain relationship dynamics more likely—and makes these couples more likely to show up in your office. Unfortunately, if the one partner’s ADHD isn’t addressed directly, the therapist will get stuck in the same traps as the partners do. We will begin with a more useful conceptualization of how ADHD impacts an individual’s abilities to meet daily demands. We will then discuss how this sets up the dynamics that commonly develop in these couples, so that you can help these clients break free of the disempowering tug of war and create a more balanced and satisfying relationship. This will include how ADHD impacts a couple’s sex life and how to make yet another area of discontent into a shared activity that adds energy to the relationship.
