This workshop is designed to help you and your partner learn how to achieve courageous love, based on the presenter’s Internal Family Systems model of psychotherapy. When couples have self-led conversations, their relationships harmonize naturally. They can discuss even highly charged issues productively and feel safe to reveal their most vulnerable parts to each other.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Discuss and identify the qualities of Self: curiosity, compassion, confidence, courage, clarity, creativity, connectedness, calmness.
  2. Understand the concept of releasing uncomfortable feelings and beliefs which allows harmony and balance in the inner system.
