When Working with the Couple Works Best for the IndividualBook tickets
Little has been written about the differences between couple and individual psychotherapy and how these modalities impact on individual development. This workshop will examine some of these differences, and explore why some patients seem to do better in couple work and why some need an individual space.
Research around outcomes from these two modalities will be discussed, together with exploration of the different qualities and capacities therapists need for couple and individual work. Technical issues about the building of a therapeutic alliance, the use of the transference and endings will be addressed. Attention will also be given to issues around those patients who have simultaneous couple and individual therapy.
The workshop, which is suitable for both individual and couple psychotherapists, will consist of theoretical and case presentations and will offer plenty of opportunity for discussion.
