Couple therapy will flourish as this field integrates research from social and neuropsychology and clarifies the processes that mediate change in love relationships.

BT10 Short Course 20 - A New Model for Intimate Relationships - Robert Johansen, PhD, Ian Johansen, PhD, Todd Gaffney, PhD
This workshop will introduce a new cognitive model for brief, solution-focused psychotherapy for couples. This cognitive paradigm is unique in several ways. It points to the fact that no one knows the client better than his/her intimate partner. The client’s partner pushes, pulls, and teases every imperfection of out their partner’s personality. Specifically, intimacy reveals what is incomplete about the client’s emotional development. It also reveals how effectively the client manages the needs he or she brings to the relationship. This is precisely what clients need to study themselves and points to what we as therapists can do to help our clients. With Robert Johansen, Ian Johansen and Todd Gaffnet.
