Get relationships back on track with an approach that emphasizes getting the most out of the time you will have with couples and families.

Full Description:
Statistics indicate that most couples and families only attend therapy an average of 5 – 8 times. If you are to be effective, you need to hit the ground running. 

In this webinar, we’ll discuss how to do exactly that –quickly set goals and shape the first session, quickly build rapport and assess, develop treatment maps for common couple and family presenting problems, and use homework. We’ll walk through the opening sessions, tell you what to do, and more importantly what not to do. If you are new to couple and family therapy, this will provide a model on which to build. If you are experienced, you’ll leave feeling challenged and creative.

Live Q&A
