Back by popular demand and in response to requests for a skills-and-practice-focused follow-up to his previous workshop, Terry Real returns with an extended training in Relational Life Therapy™. Participants of Terry’s workshop last November were struck by the power and effectiveness of RLT in action with challenging couples. RLT is unique in its practical and action-oriented approach towards addressing how men, women, and relationships have changed from the 20th century to the 21st and how to help couples proactively create the relationship they want.
Over 2 two-day trainings, Terry will guide you through a combination of lecture, presentation, discussion, role plays, large group work, and small group exercises, in order to ground theory in practice. Please note that class size will be limited to facilitate more in-depth interaction.
You will have a chance to observe and then practise the essential techniques of RLT. These include use of the Relational Grid™ to diagnose and discuss the present dynamic between partners, how to gain leverage over partners who exhibit grandiosity, working with shame, how to "take sides" and skillfully confront difficult truths in order to support positive change, and how to use the existing relationship to dramatically transform character. The focus is on the "hands-on nuts and bolts" of RLT.
This training has been designed for the helping professional to achieve an intermediate level of competency in the clinical practice of RLT.
