Description

In recent years, research has identified key, measurable elements of happy and stable long-term relationships. They include trust, attunement, listening compassionately and nondefensively within conflict, a relational safe haven, and emotional commitment. In this workshop, you’ll acquire tools for approaching couples therapy more effectively. You’ll discover:

  • How to enhance a couple’s capacity for gratitude, cherishing, and commitment
  • Interventions that increase couples’ ability to deescalate anger, manage conflict, and repair ruptures in the relationship
  • How to stay calm in the midst of couples’ relationship conflicts and have hope when they feel hopeless
