Terry Real’s Relational Life Therapy™ deals with the most stuck, most intractable cases by dealing squarely with issues of character. His Relationship Bootcamp begins with this slogan: "Other Workshops Teach You Skills: We Deal With the Part of You That Won't Use Them." WHAT you do matters less than WHICH PART OF YOU is at the wheel—the mature, present part of you, or an immature, triggered part of you. “We teach individuals in couples how to be relational—changing each individual’s character as we change the relationship between them.” RLT uses the current relationship both as leverage and as the laboratory in which individuals can learn and master the art of “relational mindfulness”—a practice of bringing your best self into play in your most heated moments.
