Couples who appear warm and friendly can be deceptively difficult. They fear intensity, anger and deep involvement. We will focus on principles for managing sessions, core competencies required in the therapist, and what it takes to support each partner's development to enable more intimacy and sexuality.

Educational Objectives:

  1. To describe the characteristics of partners who fear deeper involvement.
  2. To describe three principles for facilitating each partner’s development.
