In this presentation, we talk about common relationship patterns and pitfalls for couples impacted by ADHD. Most importantly, we talk about what to do to pivot from challenges into connection starting right now. This talk integrates Dr. Frank’s ADHD-informed perspective with decades of research by John and Julie Gottman on what makes relationships most likely to succeed.
