We have advanced training opportunities in couples therapy these days, but not a lot of training in the everyday skills of conducting sessions with couples who interrupt each other, flare at each other, mind read, and emotionally bail out of sessions.  Here’s an hour’s worth of practical tools.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Identify common challenges in conducting couples sessions.
  2. Describe several practical techniques for managing these common challenges.
