COMMUNITY

ADHD Partner Community

A discussion group solely for the partners of adults with ADHD. E-mail/website-based. (Not a "chat" room.)
The first (2004) and longest running group of its kind —and the only group facilitated by an internationally recognized Adult ADHD expert, author, and educator. We focus on strategies and progress. But there is definitely a place for "venting." Better to do that with us than your ADHD partner! Optional Zoom group meetings.

ADHD Partner Men's Zoom Community

A sub-group of the ADHD Partner Community—with its own monthly meeting via Zoom.
Solely for men whose female partners have ADHD.
Most ADHD-related relationship challenges cut across genders, but sometimes this group has particular issues for which they find little professional or personal understanding. Includes membership in the general ADHD Partner Community.

Adult ADHD-Focused Couple Therapy Gina Pera & Arthur L. Robin, PhD


Adult ADHD-Focused Couple Therapy: Clinical Interventions

ADHD-related challenges underlie many of the issues that bring couples to therapy—money, sex, chore-sharing, co-parenting. Yet, they are too often misperceived as typical “couples troubles” —nothing to do with this neurogenetic brain condition. Thanks to burgeoning ADHD awareness, individuals and couples worldwide are seeking ADHD Couple Therapy. Until now, however, we’ve had no solid guide — a guide based on the evidence of what works for Adult ADHD and for couple therapy. Now there is. Co-authored with veteran ADHD expert and psychologist Arthur L. Robin.

Books by Gina Pera

Adult ADHD and Sex

Yes, sexual expression is yet another one of those areas—like sleep—where the public and professionals alike often fail to connect the dots to ADHD symptoms. Ignorance about this critically important connection between ADHD and sexual intimacy creates so much unnecessary hurt. This is a $2.99 (affordable for everyone!) Kindle-only book. If you don’t have Kindle, you can read on your computer, iPad, or phone by downloading Amazon’s free Kindle app.

ADHD Couple Therapy Chapter in Russell Barkley’s Clinical Guide

Dr. Russell Barkley invited Gina to contribute the first-ever chapter on couple therapy to his revised clinical guide: Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder: A Handbook for Diagnosis and Treatment, Fourth Edition (2014). It summarizes our Adult ADHD couple therapy model and orients mental-health professionals to the importance of keeping in mind needs of the Adult with ADHD, the partner, and the relationship.
