To Fight or To Celebrate: Inviting Ownership and Differentiation while Working with Couples

Two main questions that my couple clients present me with are: “How do we stay connected and agree when we want different things?” and “How do we disagree and still stay connected when we want different things?”   In this workshop I will discuss some ways of inviting clients into connection to self and ownership while at the same time being available and open to connection with a partner.

Learning Objectives

Participants will learn skills to invite clients in couples therapy into:

  1. refocusing from the other-blaming to self-ownership,
  2. self-soothing, and
  3. appreciation of individual differences.

Location:  PTI's Offices 

Times: 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

CEUs: 1.5

Cost: $25-$15 suggested donation at the door.
