Healing Trauma in Couples Therapy - webinar

Led by Janina Fisher, PhD, and Terry Real, LICSW
presented by Leading Edge Seminars

Wednesday, May 27–Thursday, May 28, 2020, 9:00 am to 4:40 pm

Janina Fisher and Terry Real have had far-reaching impact on the field of psychotherapy for over 60 years combined.

Janina Fisher’s specialization in somatic approaches to treating trauma, attachment and shame is recognized as an important evolution of the work of her mentors and colleagues: Judith Herman, Bessel van der Kolk and Pat Ogden. Her neurobiological approaches to the legacy of trauma have helped therapists worldwide bring applied neuroscience into their everyday clinical practice.

Terry Real has transformed the understanding of what it means to be a male in our culture and also revolutionized therapeutic work with men beginning in 1997 with the publication of I Don’t Want to Talk About It. He has gone on to develop Relational Life Therapy, a dynamic couples therapy approach that is now used by thousands of therapists worldwide, and he runs the Relational Life Therapy Institute, which trains professionals to use his approach.

Together, for the first time, Janina Fisher and Terry Real will present their shared insights and approaches to working with couples whose difficult histories present additional challenges to both the relationship and the therapeutic process.

Childhood trauma leaves survivors with a fundamental mistrust in the safety of relationships. As adults, survivors develop defenses against vulnerability, commitment and emotion—often shutting down or getting stuck in mutually escalating conflicts with their partner. This workshop will demonstrate two different styles of intervention with these clients. One will emphasize challenging the couple’s ability to be emotionally authentic; the other will focus on the importance of somatic communication in helping couples connect.

These two days will feature a unique collaboration between two leading therapists known for their original thinking, effective innovations in psychotherapy and highly engaging and dynamic presentation styles.

Therapists will gain important new knowledge about the dynamics that make couples with trauma history the most difficult to help, as well as new tools that will greatly enhance their couples therapy repertoire.

You will learn how to—

Help partners identify the role of trauma in their troubled relationships
Challenge couples to move beyond their stories and automatic responses
Change the conversation to help the couple repair with new patterns of response
Use nonverbal communication to reduce conflict and connect safely
Use somatic awareness and movement to bring about peace
Evoke a couple’s inherent capacity for authentic emotional connection and expression
