3-Day Couples Therapy Training Workshop

21st Annual Killarney Three-Day Couples Therapy Training Workshop


Rita F. Resnick, Ph.D. & Robert W. Resnick, Ph.D.

with Kevin McCann, H. Dip. GT & Favo Barbarello, M.Sc.

From a fusion model to a connection model of marriage – a practical, “hand’s on” workshop with fundamental theory, rare access to watching seasoned therapists demonstrate live and optional supervised “hands-on” skill practice. Focusing on how couples deal with difference – rather than just what the differences are – opens the window to process work that cuts across today’s content.

Overcoming Problems – Creating Possibilities
through ……
Wrestling with Restraints and Embracing Resources

2-day workshop with

Contemporary approaches have brought a ‘breath of fresh air’ into the systemic field through creating forward looking practices, de-emphasizing problems and restraints, whilst emphasizing resources and possibilities.
I created a PPRRactice map which, when combined with self and relational reflexivity (Burnham 1993 and 2005) can be used to create a workable fit between client and therapist, or therapist and supervisor. It becomes possible to plot a unique pathway from ‘problem to possibility’ for each client/supervisee when they are seeking to ‘wrestle with what restrains them’ and ‘embrace the resources that can sustain them’ along this pathway.
