  • Neurodiverse Couple Therapy: A Practical Guide to Brain-Informed Care


    This inclusive and comprehensive manual equips marriage and family therapists with the skills to identify, support, and provide Brain-Informed Care to neurodiverse couples. 

    Written from Murgado-Willard’s unique perspective as a neurodivergent couple therapist, this book:

    Addresses a knowledge gap in the couple counseling field

    Helps therapists develop and maintain an ethical standard of care for neurodiverse couples

    Introduces a new style of couple therapy for use in private practice settings: Brain-Informed Neurodiverse Couple Therapy (BINCT)

    Chapters begin by providing some historical context of neurodiversity before offering invaluable training on best practices, assessment, treatment planning, and using non-ableist, practical interventions for this population. Case studies that present a variety of sexual identities are featured throughout as well as a glossary of key terms and checklists that therapists can use immediately in their practice.

    This book aims to implement a paradigm shift in the field and is essential reading for therapy students. It is invaluable reading for practicing therapists that did not receive training on working with neurodiverse clients.

    Sometimes Even the Strongest Amongst Us Need Support

    Therapists are here to provide you compassionate, competent care. A good therapist can identify and encourage your strengths to help you reach your personal goals.

    Do you struggle to:

    1. Connect with your spouse, non-sexually or sexually?
    2. Understand your own needs and communicate them in relationships?
    3. Make and keep friendships?
    4. Stay focused at work?
    5. Handle the stress of parenting?
    6. Cope with change?
    7. Fight fairly in marriage?

    Everyone faces difficult challenges at some point. These challenges are often greater and more intense for neurodivergent people. You don’t have to feel broken, overwhelmed, or alone anymore! There’s no shame in seeking therapy support from someone who truly “gets” you. This can actually help you live your best life.

    Brain differences such as ADHD/ADD, Aspergers/Autism, Dyslexia, learning disabilities, and others are real and important. And whether you struggle with anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, relationship dissatisfaction, or any other issue on top of this…you should know that there’s hope for a better tomorrow.

    Individual therapy, couple therapy, or even online retreats can help improve your most important relationship first — the one you have with your own brain! Being proactive in your relationship by choosing pre-engagement or pre-marital therapy lets you know yourself and your partner better prior to taking the next big step. All these opportunities can pave the way to greater life satisfaction and relationship success. And they’re all available online!
