CC21 Keynote 05 - Mindfulness In Couples Therapy - Ellyn Bader, PhD; Caroline Welch
Original Program Date :


Description:

Couples therapist Ellyn Bader and Mindsight Institute CEO Caroline Welch will explore how mindfulness can provide an accessible, useful tool in couples therapy, not only for the therapist, the two individuals, and their relationship, but also for the therapeutic process. Mindfulness can be practically applied through Caroline Welch’s 3Ps approach of Purpose, Pivoting, and Pacing to cultivate more resilience which is important to cultivate in couples therapy.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Understand the 3Ps (Purpose, Pivoting, and Pacing) approach of making mindfulness accessible in couples therapy.
  2. Describe 3 strategies therapists can use to help couples pivot away from destructive conflict.
  3. Identify at least 3 ways in which therapists undermine their work when they fail to pace themselves and/or the therapeutic process.
