    Either it focused solely on helping the Adult with ADHD, recruiting the partner as "helper" or it depicted the adult with ADHD as the problem who wouldn't cooperate with therapy.

    A new model was needed.

    ADHD experts Arthur L.Robin, PhD, and Gina Pera have produced a new model for ADHD couple therapy. In their new book "Adult ADHD-Focused Couple Therapy," they educate clinicians on how to best help these couples.
