Presented by Marty Klein, PhD, LMFT In this program we’ll examine the architecture of couples, and of couples therapy. What are the building blocks that every successful couple needs—and how do we help people develop them? What are some reliable techniques we can use with couples who won’t cooperate, or when we get stuck? And how can an existential perspective help redirect couples who expect us to do their work for them? Setting & managing patients’ expectations of therapy
