The Therapist’s Toolkit for Working with
Neurodiverse Couples

Led by Jill Corvelli, Ph.D.

Do you have complex couples clients you just can’t figure out? Neurodiversity might be the invisible challenge that is keeping them stuck.
One in seven people are neurodiverse AND neurodiverse individuals have higher rates of problematic relationships. This implies that you are definitely seeing neurodiverse partners in your practice.
Dr. Jill Corvelli, from the Neurodiverse (ND) Partners Institute, coined the phrase “counseling refugees” to describe her experience of neurodiverse partners that could not access counseling with a neurodiverse lens.This lens makes all the difference in treatment.

When neurodiversity shows up in couples therapy, do you know where to start?

November 7,  9am-10:30am Pacific Time

Neurodiverse couples are less likely to get the help they really need compared to neurotypical couples because oftentimes, they’re undiagnosed or their therapist doesn’t know how to help.

In The Therapist’s Toolkit for Working with Neurodiverse Couples, led by Dr. Jill Corvelli from Neurodiverse (ND) Partners Institute, you’ll learn how to help couples build bridges between their different worlds so they can find hope and motivation to keep doing the work on their relationship. 

Plus, you’ll get a toolkit to help them navigate their differences without getting frustrated and caught up in their constant misunderstandings.

Because here’s the thing about neurodivergent couples – they just don’t know what they don’t know. And you might not, either! 

In this training you will…

The Couples Institute is partnering with Dr. Jill Corvelli to bring guidance and clarity on how to approach this topic with your own clients.

Couples with neurodiversity in one partner often feel like they’re just too different to get along, or they just have to accept things “the way they are” when they feel invalidated and exhausted trying to progress.

Sometimes, it’s because that’s what their therapist told them.

Here’s the root of most problems in a neurodiverse relationship: the ND partner doesn’t know how to communicate effectively with their NT partner (especially if undiagnosed), and the NT partner feels isolated when they can’t figure out what’s wrong in their relationship. 

The ND partner can become reactive and defensive, and the NT partner withdraws and shuts down. 

As the therapist, approaching this couple without proper context can do more harm than good. In fact, most couples that face these issues are “therapy refugees” because nothing has worked before.

Of course, you’re frustrated too because you don’t understand the ND partner or why the couple can’t make any progress. But when you build a bridge between worlds, it all starts to make sense! 

You can guide your neurodiverse couples to better communication, deeper understanding, and motivation to see their differences as a good thing without feeling as stuck as they did.

About Dr. Jill Corvelli and the Neurodiverse Partners Institute

Dr. Jill Corvelli started her degree in Professional Counseling and licensure as a Licensed Professional Counselor after working as a management consultant with Fortune 500 companies. In her counseling work, she became keenly aware of the struggles and vulnerability of neurodiverse individuals and their partners. She resolved to help this population and developed the ND Compass methodology, which she used to help hundreds of complex couples even before she obtained a Ph.D. in Counselor Education & Supervision.

This summer, she founded the Neurodiverse Partners Institute to help neurodiverse couples and therapists that work with them. In addition to creating the ND Compass, she began working with couples in an intensive model consisting of 90 minute sessions for 10 weeks, and a break before starting again. This approach supports ND couples focus and motivation, creates space for integration and practice, and offers enough time to support the process. 

For couples who want to continue to do their work without a break, she is cultivating a referral network of therapists interested in getting in on the ground floor and working with ND couples.
