The Distracted Couple identifies the aspects of adult ADHD that impact marriages and relationships, and provides a number of interventions, strategies and treatments to effectively address these challenges.

    • The first section covers an overview of evolving diagnoses; how ADHD impacts marital dysfunction; the impact of Executive Functioning Weaknesses; and a one-on-one interview with a known expert in the field focusing on the impact of ADHD in couples.
    • In section two the editors focus on diverse and less recognized populations such as African-American couples, women with ADHD and same-sex couples.
    • Section three includes a section on working with couples with ADHD and emphasizes treatment protocols and solutions to problems in couples.


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.
