Collaborative Romantic Relationships Group Program

Individuals with ADHD can often face additional barriers and challenges in romantic relationships. This may include understanding how to coordinate daily responsibilities/tasks, respond to highly emotional situations and create understanding and acceptance of ADHD with a romantic partner.

Clinical Psychologist and Neuropsychologist Dr Andrew Sheridan in collaboration with international ADHD in Relationships expert and Author, Melissa Orlov have developed a highly practical romantic relationships program with between-session practice tasks to support a thriving collaborative romantic relationship.

The Collaborative Romantic Relationships Group Program will equip you as a couple to:

  • Build an understanding and acceptance of ADHD in a romantic relationship
  • Improve communication and problem solving together as a couple
  • Address role imbalances and increase teamwork/collaboration
  • Exercise strategies for a close, respectful, and emotionally supportive relationship
  • Manage frustrations and self-doubt when faced with challenges

Please note: This program is best for couples navigating the routine ups and downs of romantic life where one or both members of the couple have ADHD (formally diagnosed, or not formally diagnosed), rather than couples in acute turmoil because of recent infidelity or domestic violence.
