Presented by Marty Klein, LMFT

In this all-day workshop, we will look at the structure of the therapeutic relationship and identify the typical places we get stuck—and learn how to move through those impasses with grace, humor, and power.

Topics we will cover:

  • Power dynamics & power struggles
  • The architecture of intimacy
  • Ten good reasons couples don’t have sex
  • Making, keeping, and breaking agreements
  • Committing to rules of productive conflict

You will learn:

  • Help couples identify and change their narratives
  • Help conflict-avoidant people engage with their partner
  • Use guilt as a motivator
  • Use the energy of angry, high-conflict people to move the therapy forward

These new skills will give you more energy to work with couples—and you’ll do it more effectively.
