If you would like to increase your skills in couples therapy, please join us.

We will study couples therapy by discussing cases and questions from your practices. You are welcome to present cases if you would like. You are also welcome to ask questions about any topics in couples therapy. 

For example, people have asked how to

  • use questionnaires
  • start with a new couple
  • start sessions on a good note
  • handle difficult clients
  • choose the most important topic(s) to discuss
  • deal with affairs
  • deal with verbal abuse
  • deal with narcissism
  • end sessions on a good note

We've got a lot we can teach you about each of these questions, and many more.

When you do present a case, you can do it in any way you'd like. Some people make detailed case presentations; others briefly describe their couple and the problem. 

With each case we do our best to answer the therapist's questions. We discuss how to proceed at that juncture in therapy. We also consider which theories and interventions apply to similar couples. Sometimes there are clear-cut answers; sometimes not. We understand that couples therapy can be very difficult.

You will learn new skills to use, and new interventions to consider. You’ll learn some new ways of thinking about couples. You will also learn the art of deciding what-to-do-when. You’ll learn how to consider many different ideas, theories, and interventions – and which ones to use with whom. We draw on the work of Hendrix, Gray, Gottman, Johnson, and Real.

The online platforms we use are SecureVideo and PSYBooks. These are encrypted, confidential, and HIPAA compatible. Our discussions will be secure and confidential.
