An initial session with a couple that will help them to can insight into a present relationship problem. The four step process will help the couple identify clear action steps to use in creating a more satisfying partnership.
This workshop will focus on unpacking negative emotional responses that fuel a couple’s dance of distress and using emotion to shape powerful positive bonding interactions that then fuel transformative positive emotions. Theory, research and interventions will be outlined with the viewing of therapy sessions and experiential exercises.
This brief model has a powerful effect on couples. Misleading in its simplicity but potent in its outcome, the Three C’s approach uses the couples’ own words to design and realign the relationship in a strategic manner. Lecture, live demonstration, experiential exercise and discussion will be used for meaningful exchange.
