PROFESSIONAL TRAINING WORKSHOP: COUPLESWORK- SIX SESSIONS OF COUPLE THERAPY
A TWO-DAY WORKSHOP with STEVE LIONELLO 24 & 25 August 2018
Strengthen your couple therapy practice :
– as a team, we will work through six sessions with a distressed couple presenting with communication & trust issues
– sessions 1-3 (day 1) we will practice a modified Gottman assessment, and in the remaining sessions we will work with two of the most common and damaging couples patterns: criticise/defend and pursue/withdraw. Participants will have the opportunity to practice and observe deep joining and challenging
– theoretically we will work with the key concepts of John Gottman’s longitudinal research, and aspects of the Gottman Method, and the key concepts and practices of Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy – working in the present with repeating patterns and emotions, and making meaningful links with attachment styles
The workshop will allow opportunities for practice, reflection and feedback in a supportive environment, working in the large group, and in the small group.
Steve ran this workshop for the first time last year with very positive feedback:
‘I liked the informal, steady pace, the space for questions, safety. Enjoyed both days. Learned a lot and hungry for more now. Lovely facilities, awesome staff and great food.’
‘Well planned, structured & informative. Evidence based models, experienced and knowledgeable trainer. Your caring, nurturing approach was comforting – great sense of humor – I would highly recommend this course to others!’
‘I liked the experiential learning. Having the six sessions was really helpful as it took us to really deep territory and enabled us to see negative recurring patterns more easily. Didn’t feel tired at the end of the 2 days which is great. Kept my interest the whole way through.’
