Host Dr. Umesh Jain cuts through the drama to offer no nonsense advice for everyone involved. As he makes clear, the Non-ADHD partner has been struggling to understand and hold the family together. A diagnosis of ADHD will have an impact on their lives as well.
Gina Pera, author of Is It You, Me, or Adult A.D.D.? explains how to break the cycle of arguments, accusations, frustration and despair. She offers encouragement to the partners and parents in ‘taking care of yourself’ dealing with emotionally charged issues.
And Dr. Jain offers guidance on dealing with the changing family dynamic. When the ‘black sheep’ understands what’s going on, seeks treatment, and makes progress then other family members will have to take responsibility for their actions. Their resistance can undermine progress.
There are practical steps for both the ADDer and their partners that can eliminate the conflict and chaos of this misunderstood mindset. Make your marriage, partnership or friendships soar.
