Event Description
Couples and marital therapy is very challenging work. Traditional problem-focused approaches often result in therapy that is stuck in the couple re-enacting their conflicts in the office. To move beyond this focus on conflict, a Strengths-Based Approach emphasizes the romantic attraction that brought the couple together, ways in which theĀ· couple balance or complement each other, and how the couple has grown through the challenges of life together. Through a better understanding of the role of early attachment patterns and how these are repeated and worked through with the partner, stronger attachment and emotional safety in the marriage can be promoted. The importance of a committed stance from the therapist toward rebuilding a good relationship is crucial. Many case examples will be presented in this program through lecture, role-playing vignettes, and partner clinical exercises. Lunch is included in this full day program. Registration is online.
