Montgomery County, “Anger & ADHD- Communication Workshop for Difficult Topics”

February 23, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Anger and communication blow-ups are common for couples impacted by ADHD, who are typically quite different from each other in backgrounds and skillsets.  This hands-on workshop focuses on two topics – diminishing anger, and improving communication around difficult topics.

Workshop Goals

  • Cope more ably with anger from a partner
  • Identify and better manage anger in oneself
  • Improve communication skills using specific strategies known to work for couples impacted by ADHD
  • Learn how to get ‘unstuck’ from repetitive conflict conversations
  • Develop a personal plan for how to better manage communications that you can build upon after completing the workshop
