Couples Conference 2018

Attachment, Differentiation, and Neuroscience in Couples Therapy

Held May 4-6, 2018 in Oakland, 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 Conference, 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.

Biological anthropologist Helen Fisher discusses three brain systems that evolved for mating and reproduction: the sex drive; feelings of intense romantic love; and feelings of deep attachment to a long term partner.

She concludes with discussion of the brain circuits associated with long-term partnership happiness and the future of relationships in the dig

Short Description:
At no other time in history have men been so awash in mixed cultural messages and in such a state of transition, confusion, reactivity, and trouble. Despite being basically good hearted, many men continue to make a hash of their relationships. We therapists can help, but not before rethinking some of the sacred cows of therapeutic practice. Men need action and leadership from us, challenging them while still loving the little boy inside them and offering guidance and tools to their inner grown-up.

Short Description:
The early 1950s brought us John Bowlby's work on infant attachment, mirrored by Harry Harlow's primate attachment studies on rhesus monkeys. The 50s and 60s saw the advent of Murray Bowen's groundbreaking work on differentiation. The 1970s brought us further with Margaret Mahler's work on separation/individuation and the psychological birth of the human infant. Today, clinicians and researchers alike attempt to validate the developmental theories of Bowlby, Bowen, and Mahler thro

Short Description:
Biological Anthropologist Helen Fisher discusses four broad basic styles of thinking and behaving associated with four primary brain systems: the dopamine, serotonin, and testosterone and estrogen/oxytocin systems. She discusses why people are predisposed to love one person rather than another (mate choice). She hypothesizes that individuals who primarily express of the constellation of traits linked with each of these brain systems may be predisposed to different forms of love addiction, includ

Short Description:
The secret to helping couples have a powerful, transformative experience in therapy is to get them to deeply explore---while in each other’s presence---their own character structure and family-of-origin trauma. For the therapist, this process involves six steps: arriving at the couple’s relational diagnosis, helping them articulate their repeating loops, getting the backstory of their childhood adaptation, imaginatively reparenting each inner child, loving confrontation, and helping

Short Description:
Perhaps the single most discussed issue in couple therapy is sex. This two-hour workshop will lead clinicians through a series of interviewing techniques for examining sexual problems in couples. These techniques include questions to ask, assessment of explicit and implicit somatic answers, and other strategic, bottom- up methods for getting to the crux of the matter. We will also cover typical difficulties many therapists have with frank sexual questioning. We’ll examine attach- ment orga

Short Description:
Secure attachment offers us a potent sense of safety and a way to maintain equilibrium in the presence of danger or threat. These bonds allow us to tolerate and cope with our human frailty. The love one person feels from another has an enormous effect on them, both physically and emotionally. One of the goals of EFT is to help partners see how they are both caught in a recurring pattern of emotional disconnection, triggering each other into aggressively demanding a response or freezing up and sh

Would you choose to work with a couple who told you on the phone they live and love with 2 other people and some tensions are arising? Many people are exploring consensually non-monogamous relationships, and as a result, related issues are showing up in therapy rooms everywhere. This workshop will debunk myths, distinguish between n

Short Description:
When One or Both Partners are Highly Cognitive or Emotionally Avoidant. Accessing and deepening vulnerable emotions that are at first hidden, unspoken, unknown or masked by reactive and protective emotions is one of the most powerful skills of an emotionally focused couples therapist. Emotionally focused therapists facilitate emotionally moving enactments by guiding avoidant partners to turn to their partner and to share with them about their pain, sadness and fears.

Short Description:
Passive aggressive spouses challenge even seasoned couple’s therapists. One partner over functions and the other under functions. Both become entrenched in this pattern. And the passive aggressive partner stubbornly resists your best insights and agreements for change. As conventional therapy often falls flat with this couple, I will do a demonstration showing you to stay out of the middle and create an unconventional leverage for change. Leave with a comprehensive framework for changing

Short Description:
For decades, psychoanalytic models of individual therapy were retrofitted into marital treatment models. These approaches tended to be ineffective with character disordered partners. With the recent emergence of polytheoretical, psychobiological approaches to couple therapy, the clinician can now be more effective with character disordered partners. This two hour workshop will help clinicians differentiate between those partners who are psychoneurotic, insecurely attached, or undifferentiated, a
