80 Fifth Avenue
Room 1408
New York , New York 10011

   For clinicians used to working individually, the domain of couple work can feel overwhelming as relational dynamics come alive in the treatment room. This workshop will attempt to provide a roadmap for beginning work with couples that capitalizes on attendee’s pre-existing strengths as relational analysts. Specific attention will be paid to understanding attachment styles as they emerge in couple dynamics. Demonstrations and video will be presented to illustrate the steps and stages of EFT, from alliance, to reframing negative interaction patterns, to repairing injuries, to restructuring bonds between partners.
