NP0011, Couples, Session 4, Esther Perel

 
An extramarital affair can be a traumatic experience for couples, causing feelings of anger, rejection, fear, loss of trust, grief, and can ultimately destroy the relationship. But does it always have to be framed in this experience of trauma and eventual breakdown of the relationship? Is it possible to rebuild trust and intimacy after an affair? Learn with Esther Perel how, contrary to conventional wisdom, some affairs can actually transform a relationship. Discover techniques to help couples rebuild trust after an infidelity and hear about different cultural perspectives on affairs.

After this session, please let us know what you think. What's your experience with couples trying to heal after affairs? What cultural setting do you practice in and how do you think that affects the way in which you work with couples or clients in general?

As always, if you ever have any technical questions or issues, please feel free to email support@psychotherapynetworker.org.

NP0011, Couples, Session 1, Ellyn Bader and Peter Pearson

 
Welcome to our latest New Perspectives on Practice series, “Who’s Afraid of Couples Therapy?” This exciting series, based on our November/December 2011 issue on the topic, will explore the challenges of couples work, discuss how therapists can become more comfortable doing effective work with couples, and much more.

What are the most effective strategies in working with couples? How can therapists structure therapy—particularly in the early sessions—so that couples leave with a sense of hope, rather than frustration? Can working with individuals who have serious issues in their relationships actually be detrimental to them? Find out the answers to these questions and much more. In this first session with expert couples therapists Ellyn Bader and Peter Pearson, the creators of the Developmental Model of Couples Therapy, you’ll find out why clinicians often avoid working with couples and how you can better prepare yourself for couples therapy work.

Throughout the series, a Comment Board after each session will be available. The Comment Boards are a way for participants to share thoughts and reflections about what was most interesting and to ask questions of the presenters and of each other. We invite and encourage you to use these Comment Boards as a forum for thought and to continue the conversation sparked by each session. After listening to this first session, please just take a few minutes to share what you think. What was most striking about this session? What questions do you have? 

Thank you so much for your participation, and welcome to this relevant and important series. If you ever have any technical questions or issues, please feel free to email support@psychotherapynetworker.org.
