When faced with loss of attraction, clients and therapists alike often feel overwhelmed, confused, and disempowered. Attraction seems so mysterious, coming on quickly and going away just as suddenly. It is easy to believe attraction is out of our control. But restoring attraction is actually possible. In this workshop, Martha will show you how she uses several concepts and interventions from the Developmental Model of Couples Therapy to help clients identify what is blocking attraction, remove the blocks, and restore intimate connection. Expect a spirited combination of lecture, discussion, Q & A, and plenty of immediately applicable material you can take to your next session.
Martha Kauppi believes that relationships (with yourself, your family, your partner, your culture, your community) form the context for life and provide some of the richest material for both joy and struggle. Improving any of our relationships improves every aspect of life. She is skilled in relationship, family, and couple counselor, and love working with people who are addressing family relationship challenges, improving couple communication, or exploring improved intimate connection.
