Working with highly emotional and conflicted couples is often challenging even for seasoned couples’ therapists. This workshop will draw upon the rich depth of Gestalt theory, offering specific strategies to facilitate emotional focus, contact and attachment. Interventions for the common interruptions and emotional detours couples take will be practiced with the goal of helping therapists more effectively educate their client couples and facilitate their emotional dance.
