This chapter describes an optional session that can be conducted with a spouse, partner, or family member of the client with ADHD. In this session the therapist would provide psychoeducation about ADHD to the client’s spouse, partner, or family member. The therapist would also provide an overview of the treatment. The chapter offers suggestions on how to conduct a discussion of the role the family member will play in the client’s treatment. The chapter concludes with a case vignette.
