CC16 Keynote 03 - Sewing Partners Together: Techniques for Moving Couples Toward Secure Functioning

This one-hour presentation will demonstrate cross-dialogic and other strategic techniques for shepherding couples toward secure functioning, an attitudinal and behavioral expectation that couples operate as a two-person psychological system. Because the concept of secure-functioning is principle based and not personality based, the success of secure-functioning relationships does not depend upon attachment orientation. The presentation will endeavor to help the clinician utilize psychobiological strategies to help clarify partner attachment strategies, true desires, and unspoken agendas in couple therapy. 

Educational Objectives:

  1. List at least five characteristics of a secure-functioning relationship.
  2. Apply at least three interventions for moving couples toward secure functioning.
  3. Differentiate and describe the difference between secure attachment and secure-functioning relationships.
