CHADD of New York is proud to present:
ADHD and Sexuality
Presented by: Sari Cooper, LCSW
Monday, December 8, 2014
What challenges does a partner with ADHD confront in long-term relationships? How can eroticism be enhanced or decreased when attention is flowing yet unfocused? Partners or spouses of people with ADHD can over time take the common behaviors associated with the diagnosis personally leading to hurt, misunderstanding and avoidance of sex.
Without an understanding of how to manage the symptoms, people with ADHD may fall into common habits that shut out their partner/spouse. If folks can harness their natural strengths and engage their partner in novelty, fun and excitement, partners can reframe the ADHD as an enhancer of sexuality rather than a detriment.
In this presentation, you will learn how to:
• Identify the most common sexual dysfunctions associated with having ADHD
• Examine the misunderstandings and rifts between partners that are created through ADHD symptoms
• Steps individuals can take to improve their sexual and romantic relationship
Join us for an exciting evening where you will learn about the intersection of Sexuality and ADHD.
