Individuals with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) experience problems in time management, task completion, and focus. They may also struggle with impulse control and the capacity to sustain a healthy, long-term relationship. While medication can mollify many aspects of ADHD, it does not typically help with the time management, communication, or other interpersonal elements of the condition. ADHD has only recently been recognized as an issue that persists into adulthood, and a vital but largely unrecognized component of working with adult ADHD involves its effects on couple relationships. Therapists must be conversant in recognizing ADHD in the adult life span and working effectively with individuals and couples to reduce the negative effects of ADHD on them.
