If couple therapy is one of the most difficult of therapies, working with high-conflict couples takes the challenges to another level. In this 2-hour training, we’ll look at common sources of conflict and initial presentations, discuss from a CBT and systems foundation how to quickly isolate dysfunctional patterns, calm the emotional waters, and anticipate transference. Combining PowerPoint, discussion, and role-play, we’ll walk through the goals and tasks of those crucial openings session, discuss how to use homework, what traps to avoid, when to refer individuals out, and most of all, how to ensure that clients feel differently when they walk out than when they walked in. If you are new to couple therapy, you will leave with a solid model; if you are experienced, you will be challenged and invigorated.
