Deficits such as affect blindness, alexithymia, and poor theory of mind will likely lead to mutual dysregulation in couples during periods of distress or threat and is the driving force behind relationship dissatisfaction and dissolution. This workshop will introduce attendees to the most common social-emotional deficits and will demonstrate how to identify these deficits and what to do about them in couple therapy.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Write and describe at least four social-emotional deficits commonly found in couple therapy.
  2. Apply at least one intervention for dealing with each deficit.
