Couples come into treatment presenting a wide array of issues: communication, conflict, sexuality, affairs, parenting, mental illness, substance abuse, multi-generational family problems etc. Couples often struggle with too many of these issues all at the same time. Dr. David Treadway’s model of organizing couples therapy helps the patients design their own treatment plan. This seminar will demonstrate how to give couples choice whether to work on making changes in the here and now, focus on healing from the wounds of their past, or visit the dynamics of their family of origin. Dr. Treadway will demonstrate with video, role play, and discussion how this model helps couples invest in their own treatment, learn how to collaborate respectfully, and tolerate living with unresolved issues while working on changing one aspect of their relationship at a time.
In addition to demonstrating this collaborative model of organizing couples treatment, Dr. Treadway will also present a wide range of therapeutic strategies, protocols, and interventions for the many typical problems that couples present. A special emphasis will be on how to make “homework” work. This seminar will demonstrate how to engage and motivate couples to do homework and show the transformational impact on treatment when couples do follow through.
Upon completion of this seminar, participants will be able to:
