|Course / Workshop content:||
This practical one-day training workshop begins with a brief review of historical approaches to couples therapy and how research has revealed the ineffectiveness in those approaches. Ari will then present some of Gottman’s (leading couples therapy researcher) findings about destructive patterns in couple relationships and their predictive validity as well as those aspects that enhance satisfying and enduring relationships.
The emphasis of this training; however, is on healing wounded/dysfunctional relationships using research-based techniques. This includes changing the “Big Four” (criticism, contempt, defensiveness, and stonewalling) that lead to relationship demise to positive interactions that enhance relationship satisfaction. This will include teaching couples how and when to take a break and rather than just learning to apply conflict management skills, participants will also learn to maximise its effectiveness.
Ari will include methods for healing past wounds with healthy alternatives to fighting. He will also teach methods for strengthening intimacy and connection which contributes to good sex. This will include stressing the use of open-ended questions and helping couples to create rituals - ways of being together that are comforting and reassuring. Participants will learn by lecture, demonstration, exercises and role plays.
This training may qualify for Focussed Psychological Strategies (FPS) CPD. Please refer to the Dept. of Health website for more information.
