Building Loving ADHD Couple Relationships
In this highly interactive presentation, participants will learn to turn the love switch on. Carol Gignoux uses her new book: Top Six Secrets of Successful ADHD Couples© to help couples get to the heart of their communication issues and stop the cycles of misunderstanding that can lead to resentment. Carol’s thoughtful and humorous style of engaging her participants allows them to clearly see the good and bad consequences of common patterns of behavior in relationships. Setting aside blame and using the beliefs and assumptions they have about each other, this workshop helps couples better understand their interactions and take responsibility for their part in the relationship. Couples often leave this workshop feeling healed and empowered to address their issues in a positive way.
Working Together as a Family with ADHD
ADHD is found to be transferred from family to family and parent to child. There are often one or both parents and one or more children in the family with the condition. This can make for challenging family relationships and at times an overwhelming sense of not having control over what is going on. In this presentation family members can learn what they have in common with all ADHD families and how similar families cope and move forward in a more workable and positive direction. Although the family dynamic is infinitely more complicated than just the inclusion and interaction surrounding ADHD, understanding how ADHD manifests and operates within the family can make an important difference in successfully managing the changes that lead to increased family harmony.
The Silent Epidemic of ADHD in Adults
It’s common for adults with ADHD to think there is something wrong with them. They struggle with a hidden fear of making mistakes and feel incapable of meeting the expectations around them. They have the uncomfortable sense they just do not fit in the way others do. Because many are afraid to disclose they have “ADD”, they do not seek the help they need and unnecessarily suffer in silence. Participants in this workshop will have the opportunity to examine the part that the ADHD trait plays in their life or in the life of those they work and live with. They will be given tips and tools to rethink their relationship to their “ADD” and break out of discouragement and negative thinking patterns.
In this presentation participants will have the opportunity to take stock of the issues they experience becoming, and staying, focused and how these issues have impacted their lives. They will learn that they have a lot in common with others and will be reminded of the fact that great minds tend to have this problem. Participants will be given the opportunity to learn new behavior management strategies to address their own focusing issues and how to get the right strategies working for them. Whether you are an adult in the workplace needing support for staying focused on your priorities, a student needing to develop better study habits and avoid getting behind in classes, or an adult needing to be on top of your personal affairs, this workshop is for you.
