Workshop Description:

The essence of couples therapy is helping people leave their negative cycles and return to their positive cycles. Research has shown the importance of common factors in all successful couples therapy – across theoretical orientations. Two of those common factors are (1) thinking systemically, and (2) disrupting dysfunctional patterns. This workshop presents a model to help clarify our systemic thinking about couple’s negative and positive cycles. Additionally, Dr. Woodsfellow will guide us in a variety of interventions to disrupt their dysfunctional, negative cycles.

Presented by: David Woodsfellow, Ph.D.
