Couples Therapy with Orna GuralnikBook tickets
Focus: Holding the frame
With Orna Guralnik, Nuar Alsadir, Ken Corbett, Kali Cyrus & Eyal Rozmarin
In the acclaimed television series “Couples Therapy,” clinical psychologist and psychoanalyst, Orna Guralnik, takes viewers on an intimate journey into the complexities of couples’ relationships and how to support change through psychotherapy. In this online webinar, Orna will be joined by her peer supervision group to reflect on casework. Orna will present two cases from the show including Sean & Erica and Christine & Nadine, whose backgrounds are outlined below.
Both cases offer an opportunity to think about relationship dynamics underpinned by cultural differences, including religion, ethnicity, race and gender, and how these factors intersect. The importance of taking an intersectional and transcultural approach to think about the couples’ presenting problems will be central to the discussion. The impact of the therapist’s and peer supervision group’s own cultural perspectives will be considered. From a technical perspective, we will think about countertransference responses related to intercultural and relational dynamics, and the essential need for depth exploration in supervision to understand what might support development for the couple.
Orna will present each couple, the peer supervision group will respond. We will then open up for live discussion with participants.
