- Highly effective, practical exercise that leads many couples to say, “We haven’t felt this connected in years!”
Are you ready to take your work with couples to a whole new level? Instead of feeling stuck and bewildered, imagine feeling grounded and structured. Inadequacy is replaced with confidence, knowing you have a roadmap to keep your couples on course. New couples begin to say, “our previous therapists just let us muddle along. Thank you for finally helping us!”
Join us to learn cutting-edge tools to evolve and deepen your work with couples. This workshop offers practical interventions, step-by-step, that are designed to create the results couples want. You will learn how to take charge with the endlessly blaming couples, gain traction with the conflict avoidant couples, and guide entrenched couples out of destructive communication patterns. You will confront defenses in a way that is illuminating for everyone in the room. You’ll also sharpen your skills with a powerful communication exercise that serves as an assessment and intervention tool, as well as fostering teamwork and collaboration.
When you understand the dynamics of a relationship from a developmental perspective, your work with couples is transformed. This workshop offers proven, hands-on, practical tools that you can begin using immediately with your couples. Equipped with a road map, you will feel more prepared to face obstacles that lie ahead and be able to know you are truly helping. Watch your practice grow!
