ADHD doesn’t create unique challenges for couples—it just exacerbates the universal struggles that everyone faces in their relationship and sex life. All couples need to resolve differences in priorities, preferences, and ways of being in order to create a satisfying life together. When ADHD is undiagnosed or not well managed, it can create seemingly insurmountable disagreements where both partners feel right, but neither is happy and the therapist feels just as powerless to change it. Adults with ADHD are over-represented in therapy offices, especially couples/sex therapy, because of the many ways that it can impact relationship functioning. Couples who have additional struggles by day can benefit all the more from the benefits of a good connection at night. To that end, we will cover:

  • A more useful conceptual model of ADHD that guides more effective treatment interventions
  • How to discuss ADHD medication with clients to inform a wise decision
  • How to help couples create a more balanced, respectful and fair relationship that works for both partners
  • How to help couples have more fun together, in bed and out, including how to help couples navigate desire discrepancy and questions about masturbation and porn.

Most of our time will be spent on practical strategies that clinicians can use with individuals and couples. This will be an engaging presentation that offers nuts and bolts strategies backed by a deep understanding of relationship dynamics, sexual functioning, and ADHD neurology.

Ari Tuckman, PsyD, CST, is a psychologist and Certified Sex Therapist in private practice in West Chester, Pennsylvania. He has written four books and numerous book chapters on adult ADHD, and has spoken on the topic across the U.S. and in nine countries. His work with adults with ADHD led to an interest in how ADHD impacts relationships, including a couple’s sex life, which then led to post-graduate sex therapy training. He firmly believes that working on the honesty, discovery, and respectful communication involved in creating a better sex life will not only improve a relationship, but also make an individual a better person. His newest book, ADHD After Dark: Better Sex Life, Better Relationship, is the culmination of this worldview. It helps couples in which one partner has ADHD create a better sex life and relationship, based on his extensive survey research.
