The Distracted Couple: The Impact of ADHD on Adult Relationships
Larry Maucieri PhD, Jon Carlson PsyD
Crown House Publishing, Jan 23, 2014 - Psychology - 368 pages
In total, this volume addresses many of the issues that couples face when either one or both partners has ADHD and the many ways that clinicians can help them in dealing with these issues.Although historically the diagnosis and treatment of ADHD have focused on children, more recently clinicians and researchers have explored the impact of ADHD on adults. Few, however, have focused on the effects of adult ADHD on relationships and marriages, which makes this a must-read for all of those interested in and working with adults with ADHD.
