Product reviews for The Distracted Couple

Thomas Todd, PhD, Chicago Center for Family Health, AAMFT Approved Supervisor
Drs. Maucieri and Carlson provide much-needed guidance for professionals who work with ADHD individuals and couples. They have recruited an impressive group of experts, with an emphasis on effective intervention with couples, the unique focus of this book. They present sophisticated views on diagnosis and brain functioning, including current controversies, in a straightforward style that can be understood even without training in neuropsychology. The book is also unique in discussing populations impacted by ADHD but underserved, including African American couples, same sex couples, and women with ADHD. Hopefully this volume will enable clinicians to help combat the blame and self-blame that permeates the lives of those with ADHD, enabling couples to work together to cope with the many challenges and frustrations involved, and dispelling the myths about adult ADHD that have left the majority of individuals undiagnosed.
