Let’s Talk Individual Therapy for Couple Problems a 1 day interactive workshop

This one day workshop will explore the main evidenced-based theories and models relating to intimate relationships and how to assist an individual partner to make positive change through the use of psycho-education, cognitive and emotional self-exploration and behavioural interventions. The training will incorporate lecture, group discussion, video and Q & A.

The research suggests that individual therapy that is focussed on the management of relationship issues has traditionally not only not been successful, but has been found to lead more frequently to relationship breakdown.  However, statistics tell us that 86% of individuals presenting for therapy list relationship distress as one of their top 3 presentation issues.  What is a well-meaning therapist supposed to do?

While more research needs to be conducted, emerging theories looking at individual therapy for couple problems (ITCP) suggests clinicians can become more equipped in offering couple sensitive individual therapy (CSI therapy).  In this workshop, we focus on what knowledge, skills and processes help therapists and individuals to more successfully address couple distress with only one partner in attendance.

Outline of the Day

  • Evidence for and against ITCP
  • Pitfalls to be aware of
  • Therapist needs
  • Relationship  Models
  • Assessment
  • Therapeutic interventions

The effectiveness of the workshop will be evaluated through the use of a knowledge questionnaire and a course evaluation completed by each participant.

CPD: This training is eligible for 6 hours of CPD points.
