Imago Relationship Therapy: Becoming Competent in couple’s work
Couple’s work can often feel overwhelming for clinicians. In spite of years of training in psychotherapy, the thought of having to manage the energy and the conflict of two people leads many therapists to run the other way. Imago Relationship Therapy is an approach with a thirty-year track record. It provides clinicians with a new perspective into conceptualizing conflict as well as a clear structure for running a session, allowing the therapist to remain in control of the room and achieve phenomenal results.
This interactive training offers concrete steps for providing successful couples counseling. Participants will gain confidence in couples work when they understand the methods employed by Imago therapists. Clinicians will learn how to better conceptualize the conflict that the couples is experiencing, and how to create enough safety to de-escalate the conflict and help the couple reconnect. Participants will also be exposed to the Imago Dialogue process and how it can be used to elicit more effective communication, understanding, and compassion.

Class 2- 1:45pm-4:45pm (3 CEUs – Ethics)
Ethical Practice for Couples Therapy!
Therapists are taught of our ethical responsibility to “Do no Harm”. Couples therapy is an area in which the potential for harm to the client is great as “unsuccessful therapy” can make a relationship worse and even lead to divorce.
This interactive training will help you explore the best ethical practices for couple’s therapy as well as explore why working with couples requires a different set of core competencies than individual therapy. Through lecture and interactive discussions, participants will consider the various ethical dilemmas that arise in couple’s therapy. They will also learn how to better provide neutrality and unconditional positive regard for the couple.
Participants will learn best ethical practices for couple’s therapy that will make their work with couples more effective. You will examine real case scenarios and will gain skills that will be useful to all areas of your clinical practice.

Class 3 (3 CEUs – Ethics)
The Change Ethic!
Why does change seem so hard? What can we learn about change from alligators, elephants, and a Code of Ethics?
One of the most basic ethical principles of the helping professions is that clinicians need to assist clients in realizing their capacity to change. While this ethical principle goes to the very core of practice, practitioners often find themselves at a loss when working with “resistant” clients. This interactive training will examine the obligation to help clients change and teach effective methods to achieving this ethical obligation. (Trainer Jeffrey Davidson LCSW-C, LICSW)
