BT10 Workshop 27 - One Foot Out the Door - Working With Couples on the Brink - Michele Weiner-Davis, MSW

In this workshop, you will learn concrete, step-by-step techniques to help people with seemingly intractable problems – one spouse’s unwillingness to seek therapy, a divorce in process, and on-going infidelity – to resolve their difficulties and reclaim their lives.
