Couples therapy is difficult. Many therapists do not get enough couples-specific training, and as a result they end up being reactive during their sessions, instead of being able to successfully lead a couple through steps of resolution. The Couples Conference is a great opportunity for therapists who are new in the field to choose one of five models, and dig deep into it — or, for practitioners to broaden their range and concepts of what, in general, works in couples therapy.
For 24 years, the Milton H. Erickson Foundation has been promoting the progress and development of couples therapy with the Couples Conference programs. We feature presenters who spend their careers practicing and evolving their unique approaches to therapeutic problems in relationships. This year, we are celebrating five specific pathways to interpersonal excellence in couples therapy.
Learn more about the five pathways.
We want our participants to walk away with a lot of practical skills, tools, and the ability to see what is wrong in a couples’ relationship, and then have a way to help the couple facilitate change. Through beginner and advanced workshops, as well as video presentations and discussions, attendees of the Couples Conference will be provided the necessary tools so that they will become better equipped to deal with the challenges faced in the often highly-reactive couples therapy sessions.
