Facilitating Connection & Empowerment in Couple Therapy: Insights from Interpersonal Neurobiology

Couples coming to therapy are often caught up in cycles of emotional reactivity. This webinar explores individual, interpersonal, intergenerational, cultural, and neurobiological factors fueling couple distress. Informed by research from relationship science and interpersonal neurobiology, Mona Fishbane, Ph.D, will explore the neuroscience of couple impasses, and will offer techniques to help clients bring prefrontal thoughtfulness to emotional reactivity and co-create more satisfying, intimate relationships. Her approach is one of relational empowerment, helping partners to gain skills of emotion regulation and empathy, and to cultivate positivity, gratitude, and generosity in their relationship. The dynamics of habit and change will be explored, informed by research on neuroplasticity, the ability of the brain to change.
