Part 1

Sorry, there are no training courses currently running in 2014

Working with couples in conflict can be extremely challenging work. There

are numerous different ways of expressing and responding to conflict both

for the couple and the therapist. We will explore some of these in this one

-day workshop. As a participant, you will be required to write a brief case

study of a couple in conflict that you have worked with or are currently

working with (two sides of A4 will be plenty). A small section of a session

verbatim, where the couple are  in conflict, would be very useful.

We will work with your cases, looking at different interventions as well

as looking at your own relationship to anger.

Couples In Conflict

Part 2

In this workshop we will watch the film ‘Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf’,

a classic film Edward Albee’s play about a couple in conflict. We will discuss

this film and the function of the conflict within it. There will be two papers

to read in preparation and an opportunity to connect some theory with

participants’ case work. It is not essential for you to have done the first

workshop in order to participate on this one. However, I believe you may

benefit from doing both part 1 and part 2 and I am offering a reduction to

people who sign up for both.

Couples and Affairs

In work with couples we are frequently working with one or both partners

having had or in the process of having an affair. Understanding the function

of an affair and working with the consequences in the relationship can be

challenging work for the therapist and couple. In this workshop we will

explore the many different types of affairs and how to work with the

disclosure, the crisis and the underlying issues. We will also explore our own

attitudes and responses. There will be a small amount of writing and reading

to do prior to the workshop.
