This workshop moves beyond the first phase of RLT to detail the theory and technique of phase two: Family Of Origin Work, trauma and Inner Child Work. In phase one we identified each partner’s relational stance and how the two stances combine to produce the couple’s choreography – the vicious circle they come to us trapped within. Now we travel through the stance back to where it first came from – the particular childhood experiences each partner’s Adaptive Child part was adapting to. Focusing on one partner at a time, we extract the young child part and imaginatively engage it – begin to relate to it. The therapist facilitates an explicit, caring relationship between the person’s Functional Adult self and the Adaptive Child part that has fueled the dysfunctional relational stance.

Educational Objectives:

  1. List the pros and cons of inner child work in couples therapy.
