Some couples seem intractable and unchangeable, and their devotion to maintaining their misery seems mysterious. We often dread their next appointment. This workshop will demystify this well- known dynamic and describe and demonstrate concepts and processes that make working with the Couple-from-Hell joyful, even desirable.

Educational Objectives:

  1. List the demystifying traits of the impasse of the difficult couple.
  2. Discuss the defense of receiving as the final frontier in couples work.
