Working with couples can be very challenging and asks a great deal of the therapist in different ways to working with individuals. This training day is designed to give therapists an opportunity to learn systemic concepts when working with couples and participants will learn practical skills and tools to build confidence in this area of clinical work.
Participants will be introduced to ‘Systemic’ thinking which is central to effective couple work. Additionally, adaptations of Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) to couple work is included in this workshop with practical applications of ‘Best Hopes’, ‘Miracle Question’ ‘Scaling’ and ‘Exceptions’. The essential skills of ‘Circular Questioning’ will be a key feature of this workshop. Participants will learn how to engage with couples, keep the session progressing and manage many of the difficult and complex issues that can arise.
Training methods: Ari discusses each technique, then provides live demonstrations of the key skills before trainees practise them in structured exercises. The format is designed to be practical with a strong focus on couple skills.
This training may qualify for Focussed Psychological Strategies (FPS) CPD. Please refer to the Dept. of Health website for more information.
