An Introduction to Working With Couples
A Two-Day Course
Are you a therapist or counsellor who wants to work with couples but doesn’t know where to start? Have you felt powerless as the couple you are working with argues in front of you and you are unsure of what to do? This Couples Therapy Training is for you!
Why do I need couples training?
Working with couples is different, challenging and rewarding. As a therapist, it’s likely that you have learned a model aimed at working with individuals. When it comes to couples (having two people in the room) your model may not help you very much.
If you want to be an effective, potent couples therapist you will need specific training on how to work with couples. Why not sign up to have that training with one of the most highly trained couples therapists in the North West?
What will I learn on this course?
- The differences between working with couples and individuals
- How to get started with your couple
- How to avoid being judge and juror
- How to work with hopelessness in the relationship
- How to facilitate connection between the couple
The aim of the course is to give you an insight into the world of working with couples and give you practical techniques that you can apply in the therapy room.
It’s important to understand that this course will not be in-depth theory, but more focused on getting you started as a couples therapist.
