Mastering the Art of Couples Therapy Consultation Group
This is a rare opportunity to join NCCT’s Director of Clinical Services, Rachel Stein, LICSW in a couples therapy consultation group for folks interested in deepening their skills in couples therapy practice.
We will focus on best practices in the couples realm to help you feel more clear about what to focus on in session including:
How to assess and manage high levels of conflict
How to jump start low-conflict couples
How to work with differentiation and gridlocked couples
Sex (desire discrepancies, sexual styles, consentual non-monogamy)
And many other subspecialties, including blending, separation and divorce, trauma, infidelity and other betrayals, conflicting attachment styles and more!
Common themes from the evidence-based models will be leaned on such as state-dependent work, how to identify choice moments to intervene and what to do when you move in, and working with self-regulation and co-regulation (the physiology of stress/threat)
Group will be a combination of didactic information and case presentation sharing/consultation. Group will be 90 minutes and cost will be $50. We will meet monthly on Wednesday mornings — 8:30a to start (may move to 9a), at our offices in Florence. First meeting will be December 18th.
