From Impasse to Intimacy: An Advanced Course/Consultation Group for Couples Therapy

In this intimate consultation group, participants will learn how to use the Vulnerability Cycle (VC) as a major anchor and tool in their clinical work with couples. Based on an integrative framework outlined by Michele Scheinkman, and cases presented by participants, the focus will be on how to use the VC to:

  • Diagram couples’ impasses and relational dynamics
  • Collect critical interactional, intra-psychic and multigenerational information
  • Define short and long term goals for the therapy

Utilizing the Multi-level Approach as a road map participants will learn how to:

  • Track and interrupt reactive patterns
  • Transform frustration and anger into narratives of vulnerabilities and yearnings
  • Facilitate negotiations and help partners move towards a better intimate fit between them
