Couples Therapy Webinar Outline
October 13th 2022
This couple’s therapy webinar would be suitable for those therapists who work already with couples or are planning to work with couples. We will introduce and expand on the work of renowned Gestalt Couples therapists Bob and Rita Resnick . We will demonstrate attendees the concept of a process based model of working with couples rather than a content model. The webinar will support attendees to work from a framework of using difference as connection material, and help couples move away from the outdated model of fusion as a means of avoiding dealing with the differences they encounter. For many couples it is not the difference that creates the problem, but how they deal with the difference. The webinar will be a mixture of theory and a short live demonstration of the model (with a real live couple). There will be space for discussion of the live work and hopefully some humour along the way.
