(Part 7) “Getting Things Done” in ADHD Relationships, with Gina Pera



“You, Me, and Adult ADHD”: a Keynote Presentation with ADHD Expert Gina Pera

This 9-part series comes from the the 2009 CADDAC conference in Toronto. Dr. Russell Barkley was the other keynote speaker.

You can watch sequentially or out of order—but sequentially probably works best.

Each excerpt is numbered below.

Throughout the presentation, I explain how Adult ADHD, when left unrecognized, can create havoc on intimate relationships and one’s relationship with oneself. Then I detail 5 Strategies for Change.

My new book is “Adult ADHD-Focused Couple Therapy: Clinical Interventions,” written psychologist Arthur Robin, PhD, and several contributors. http://www.ADHDFocusedCoupleTherapy.com

My 2008 book, “Is It You, Me, or Adult A.D.D.?”, is still going strong. It’s available at Barnes & Noble stores/online and on Amazon (paperback, Kindle, and audio): http://amzn.to/2r20asQ
