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.
Participants will learn skills to invite clients in couples therapy into:
Two interventions to refocus from other-blaming to self-ownership
Three interventions for self-soothing
Two interventions for appreciation of individual differences
