Come develop your couple’s therapy skills in this weekend intensive. Drawing from the work of Resmaa Menakem, John and Julie Gottman, and Esther Perel, this course introduces participants to current theories and practices for working with couples. Particular emphasis is placed on helping clients develop a capacity for mutual recognition and empathic attunement. Students will practice renegotiating the relationship based on a more conscious understanding of each partner’s individual subjectivity using Resmaa Menakem’s somatic concept of the five anchors for clients and therapists alike to remain present and effective during conflict. Connections between consent and pleasure, and the dichotomy of safety versus passion will be examined. Students are introduced to diverse ways of working with couples’ desire discrepancies, infidelities, and loss of interest.
