PROCESS FOCUSSED APPROACH TO COUPLES THERAPY

Process Focussed Approach to Couples Therapy - Live & Interactive via ZOOM

Over years of training relationship therapy in Australia and internationally, we have listened to many therapists’ questions centring on how to better understand the multiple and complex levels of processes involved from the beginning to the end of therapy; questions on how to support a couple to have deeper, more authentic, and real conversations to heal their relationships; and questions about how therapy can ultimately lead a couple to emotionally corrective experiences that create understanding, healing and change. To explore these questions and more, RIA are pleased to announce our new two day training program.
