This month, NCCT’s own Kerry Lusignan was the featured guest on The Couples Therapist Couch, a podcast by Licensed Marriage and Family therapist, Shane Birkel, that has showcased the likes of Stan Tatkin, George Faller and Harville Hendrix.
In this episode, Kerry speaks to her specialty, Couples Therapy Intensives and Marathon Retreats – and the research that supports the merits of working with couples who are navigating a crisis or stuck in gridlock via longer sessions. Bringing her usual humor, heart, and integrity to the conversation, Kerry makes a compelling case for the benefits of longer therapy sessions and intensive couple’s work.
She touches on all of the ingredients that make for a successful couples retreat — speaking to everything from how she supports couples in preparing for their therapy retreat, to the qualities essential for a couples retreat to be effective. Finally, she emphasizes the importance of a well-thought-out plan of action post-retreat and follow-up mini-intensives to ensure lasting benefit.
