William Doherty, Ph.D.
The most critical life decision most therapists deal with in their everyday practice is helping couples decide whether to dissolve a marriage or try to save it. Nevertheless, few of us have had specific training in assisting an ambivalent couple on the brink of divorce. Learn a step-by-step protocol for offering clients a "consultation for decision-making." We'll explore how to help the partner wanting to leave to examine the decision with integrity, while helping the other partner to both maximize the possibility that the marriage will remain intact and, if necessary, prepare for changes if the divorce happens. You'll come away crystal clear about your own values regarding marriage and divorce, whatever they might be, and how they impact your work with couples on the brink of divorce.
William Doherty, Ph.D., is a professor and director of the Marriage and Family Therapy Program at the University of Minnesota and author of 11 books on families and family therapy. Some of his books include Soul Searching, Take Back Your Marriage, and Take Back Your Kids.
