COURSE DESCRIPTION

This class will use theory, clinical case presentation and discussion to improve a clinician’s understanding and skill working with couples.  Participants will use readings and published clinical material to learn a process of assessment for couples, techniques for interpretation with couples, impasse management and will have the opportunity to present current case material from their own practice for discussion.


GOALS & OBJECTIVES

Upon completion of this activity participants should be able to:

  • Use the initial session and those that follow to set the tone and frame, to evaluate treatment for a particular couple, and to diagnose the nature of their object relationships from archaic to mature.
  • Join the system in order to create a therapeutic triangle and an alliance with each partner.
  • Strengthen the couple’s alliance with each other.
  • Understand and interpret unconscious communication.
  • Recognize and articulate goals and limitations of treatment.
  • Use transference and countertransference in couple’s therapy.
  • Understand enactment and resolve impasse as it occurs.
