In this Distraction Podcast, you’ll get ADHD and Marriage Advice from the Hallowells. Since Distraction is taking a mini break before we start Season 3, they’re re-airing a few of our favorite episodes. So if you missed my podcast with my wife Sue on ADHD, you can listen to it HERE!
Sue doesn’t hold back and gives you a clear picture of what it’s like to be the only one in our house without ADHD. You can watch this YouTube video for a “behind the scenes view of this episode.”
Relationships plagued by misunderstandings, anger, frustration and hurt are challenging. Those challenges are amplified when one or both members have ADHD or other mental health/addiction issues. ADHD, in particular, presents some unique challenges. Such as, when ADHD has not been diagnosed or when the couple does not understand how it impacts the relationship.
Dr. Hallowell offers a number of ways to learn how to thrive in relationships affected by ADHD. All of the Hallowell Centers offer ADHD counseling for couples affected by ADHD. Counseling may include treatment of ADHD, depression, anxiety and other issues. Likewise, therapy may be centered on developing strategies for improving the interactions between partners.
Dr. Hallowell and his wife Sue co-authored “Married to Distraction: Restoring Intimacy and Strengthening Your Marriage”, which deals with how to keep distraction from hurting your marriage.
