Using a developmental lens is a powerful way to lead couples to make sustained change. Learn how developmental principles can help you assess what is wrong and then guide and shape your treatment decisions. Videotapes and clinical case examples will be used throughout the workshop to demonstrate how to challenge symbiosis, facilitate differentiation and build the capacities to sustain intimacy.

Educational Objectives:

  1. To describe how to integrate the stages of couple’s development with therapeutic interventions.
  2. To describe how to sustain positive momentum in couples therapy and avoid being drawn into partner’s negative cycles.
