We Talk, We Listen but Do We Understand?
A 2 day workshop for practitioners working with couples.
17 & 18 September 2018
St Columba Centre
40 Vermont Street
We often meet couples who are struggling to find any common ground in respect to understanding past events. Consequently, we can find ourselves managing a conversation shaped by accusation and counter-accusation. In this workshop, I will discuss and demonstrate a conversational process that allows us to step away from accusation in order to find a third way. The third way incorporates each person’s experience while exploring the sometimes complex and contradictory moments which occur within relationships.
By using a process that emphasises a relational perspective, we can explore and renegotiate the taken-for-granted notions which act to shape relationships.
Throughout this presentation, I will demonstrate a therapeutic process where I engage couples in addressing concerns such as, significant betrayals of trust, longstanding conflicts, the impact of losses and grief, and the impact of life transitions on the relationship.
