First came cutting-edge theory in Is It You, Me, or Adult A.D.D.?, shining light in the darkness for couples living with the amazing complications of one or both partners having ADHD.

Now comes a luminous clinical guide for Adult ADHD-Focused Couple Therapy™—helping therapists identify the essential elements of the therapeutic process for successful outcome, including therapy models ranging from medications to cognitive-behavioral to couples therapy. 

The thoroughness and clarity of the theory and therapy, and the voluminous sources and research citations, make these two books a seminal contribution to the field.

From the ForewordUntil now, no books existed that combined both a scientific understanding of adult ADHD with pragmatic recommendations to guide these adults and their partners in coping and problem-solving. 

Gina Pera’s book [Is It You, Me, or Adult A.D.D.?] does so with an admirable balance of current scientific information mixed with sage advice and wise, practical strategies based on the current science.

There is no better book now that addresses such relationship difficulties and with such sensitivity to the complex issues inherent in them.  

Thank you, Gina, for writing such a useful book.

Frequently Asked Questions

Sure, the Internet bursts with free information on Adult ADHD.

  • But how do you: Separate wheat from chaff? 
  • Pull it all together—and put it into everyday practice?
  • Especially when ADHD is already creating chaos or confusion?

That's where we come in. We believe you deserve:

  • A solid education
  • A supportive structure for learning  new skills and habits
  • The knowledge to work more confidently  with prescribers and therapists

We provide comprehensive education and support for adults with ADHD, their loved ones, and  professionals.

ADHD is a highly variable syndrome—one that affects individuals, not clones.  Being diagnosed later in life can complicate your puzzle-solving, as you grapple not only with ADHD symptoms but with a lifetime of alternate explanations.

 

Solving Your Adult ADHD Puzzle encompasses the four essential "corner pieces" of evidence-based strategies for Adult ADHD:

  1. Psychological Education (Foundations)- in all things Adult ADHD. We go much deeper than the standard run-downs. Support materials  help you personalize the information to your situation. You'll even learn how the evaluation should go—and how to help it along.  You will zero on on identifying symptoms versus old mindsets based on misinterpretations. This is what evidence-based therapy for Adult ADHD (couples or individuals!) looks like—but is rarely found.
  2. Physical Strategies - Optimizing sleep and medication in the way that prescribers should be but seldom know how—or have the time. Critically important!
  3. Practical Skills — Supporting Executive Functions by adopting new tools and habits, as an individual and as a couple From the ground up! This is what millions seek from therapy and coaching—but seldom find.
  4. Psychological Tools — Healing dysfunctional mindsets and communication patterns  (Spring 2025)

Course components:

  • Self-paced, each video 10-30 minutes and targeting a specific topic
  • Step-by-step instruction, starting with the basics and building in complexity
  • Available 24/7
  • Action Steps Guides  to personalize your learning (complete on your device or after printing)
  • Regular opportunities to connect via Zoom  sessions; Gina facilitates peer group discussion.
  • Supports to keep you on track, including a weekly e-mail highlighting a section.

You'll find no training like this anywhere else, for any price.  In person or online.  

We are Gina Pera and Arthur L. Robin, PhD, co-authors of the first empirically informed clinical guide for helping ADHD-challenged couples: Adult ADHD-Focused Couple Therapy: Clinical Interventions (Routledge, 2016).

 

Between us, we have authored seven highly regarded books on ADHD—and bring 50 years combined experience. 

We are the recognized world leaders in  ADHD and relationships.

 

Gina created and delivers this training, based in part on the model she and Dr. Robin created with Adult ADHD-Focused Couple Therapy.

We created these courses to benefit:

  • Individuals with ADHD
  • Loved ones of adults with ADHD (spouses and intimate partners, parents, siblings, children, friends, etc.)
  • ADHD-challenged couples
  • Professionals seeking to help the ADHD community (therapists, psychiatrists, coaches, personal organizers—even accountants and others)

Course 1: Foundations  launched July 2021 and is now a battle-tested life-changer.

Course 2: Physical Strategies and Course 3: Practical Supports soon followed.

Course 4: Psychological Tools - A CBT model for ADHD couple therapy (Spring 2025)

 

No.

Previously, we offered a  book-study test bringing 15 continuing education hours via The National Board for Certified Counselors (NBCC). 

Gina Pera and Arthur L. Robin, PhD, were approved by NBCC as an Approved Continuing Education Provider

Ultimately, the response from therapists was not robust enough to continue the effort.

Professionals who learn our approach stand to gain much more than CE hours. They can help their clients creating substantive and lasting change, based on evidence-based approaches.
