Using a developmental lens is powerful to lead couples to make sustained change. Learn to use developmental principles to assess what is wrong and to direct your treatment decisions. Recognize arrested differentiation and see differentiation in action. Videotapes and clinical case examples will be used throughout the workshop to demonstrate how to promote development in hostile and conflict avoidant couples.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Delineate 5 stages of couples development.
  2. Integrate neuroscience findings into couples therapy to interrupt hostility in angry couples.
  3. Demonstrate differentiation in action during couples sessions.
  4. istinguish differentiation from individuation/autonomy and explain why this matters in effective treatment.
