Couples Conference 2017

Affairs, Addiction and Deception

Held March 31- April 2, 2017 in Manhattan Beach, CA

The Couples Conferences have become a leading vehicle for learning the applica- tions of the latest research on facilitating treatment with couples. At this Confer- ence, you will learn from leading-edge theorists and practitioners as they define, describe and discuss differing approaches that initially promote closeness and those that move toward managing difference and facilitating differentiation. By the end of this Conference, you will have advanced and refined your own thinking about how to approach the challenge of facilitating intimacy.

Short Description:
Ellyn will present a video of a first session with a couple about to separate after a third discovered infidelity. The session, conducted by Ellyn Bader and Peter Pearson focuses on illuminating how one partner’s unresolved family of origin issues create pain for both partners, contribute to infidelity and inhibit the development of the relationship. After the video presentation, Janis Spring will comment. We all learn more when we see therapeutic work discussed from multiple perspectives.

We will be looking at these behaviors from both psychobiological and neurobiological perspectives. However, detection is but one hurdle for the couple therapist. The other is intervention. PACT has a specific orientation for dealing with affairs, addictions, and deception. Attendees will get a thorough introduction to these methods as well as takeaways that can be utilized immediately in their own practice.

Short Description:
Early childhood trauma has lasting and dramatic effects on attachment formation and on the later capacity for intimacy and mutuality. Instead of experiencing relationships as a haven of safety, traumatized couples are driven by powerful wishes for and fears of closeness. By using somatic and mindfulness-based interventions, conflictual patterns are disrupted, allowing couples to address the intense responses and impulsive reactions that undermine all sense of safety and hope and recreate the experience of threat in the body and in the relationship.

Short Description:
Sex addiction destroys trust in relationships, traumatizing the partner, the sex addict, and the family system. Betrayal is an attachment injury that topples the regulatory systems of both parties, and when relational trauma is left untreated, both parties and the family system will suffer. Thus, when acute emotional and physical symptoms become chronic, treatment becomes more difficult making the prognosis for restoring the coupleship poor. Rapid intervention and interactive regulation between the couple is essential for relational healing to begin immediately. Attunement, communication, and empathy (ACE) are the three-pronged stool that supports the long, and sometimes arduous journey to restoring trust.

A betrayal comes in many forms – sexual, financial, mismanagement of thirds, withholding of information, lying, and gas lighting. Through video and live demonstration, attendees will learn how to structure their approach as determined by the type of betrayal presented in session. The matter of the trail deserves special focus as it not only involves the experience of betrayal but also the application of an architecture the therapist uses to guide the couple toward healing.

CC17 Workshop 09 - When Porn is an Issue: Couples Counseling & Psychotherapy that Works - Marty Klein, PhD We’re seeing more and more couples in conflict over one partner’s use of porn. But pathologizing one partner’s porn use while legitimizing the grievances of the consumer’s partner violates our commitment to neutrality — and more importantly, it doesn’t help the couple. To address porn-related issues more effectively, this workshop will focus on treating intrapsychic conflicts and power struggles over porn use.

By teaching couples to observe their somatic responses to each other and to use gesture instead of words, the language of blame is inhibited. In addition, somatic interventions regulate the body and nervous system, which reduces each partner's sense of threat. Without words, each partner can be taught the ability to simultaneously open and protect the heart - creating a sense of safety for self and other.

The gay male subculture emphasizes easy sexual hookups as a norm, without questioning whether this is actually healthy for a couple. This workshop will define how male couples choose exclusivity successfully, how healthy attachment is an important component for considering an open relationship and provide guidelines for managing open boundaries within a couple. Norms in the subculture will be compared to stereotypical heterosexual couples, including what actually constitutes deception or affairs, and how transform deception to a deeper intimacy.

CC17 Workshop 15 - Healing the Fragmented Self in Couples Treatment - Janina Fisher, PhD Couples enter relationships with unconscious hopes that these will be reparative, that their wounded child selves will finally experience the cherishing for which they have longed. As each triggers or disappoints the other's hurt child selves, protector parts rise to the defense with anger, withdrawal, threats, or shame. In this model, couples are helped to identify hurt, angry, fearful feelings as communications from young parts and their vigorous defensive responses as those of protector parts. By having a way to 'hover above' their conflicts, 'own' hurt and disappointment as the feelings of a young child, and take responsibility for their fight/flight behavior, couples develop a new language that promotes safety and closeness.
