Increasingly more and more couples are working together or working virtually in the same space. It is estimated that in the United States 43% of small businesses are family-run and 53% of managers share day-to-day management with a spouse. Working together tends to kill romance and take over a couples life.

As therapists we tend to look at our clients mainly through the lens of our favorite therapy model. However, couples who work together face unique challenges that are not rooted in attachment styles or family of origin conflicts.

Ellyn will delineate 6 foundational skills that support couples who work together and demonstrate how the business can become a source of connection rather than generating stress and disconnection. (Includes video demo)


Educational Objectives:

  1. Describe 6 foundational skills for building effective collaboration in couples who work together
  2. Delineate 3 distinct decision-making strategies that minimize conflict and facilitate clear boundaries at work and at home
  3. Outline negotiation principles that are unique for couples
