Jette Simon on Breaking Through in Couples Therapy
If you’ve ever worked with a couple, you know the palpable tension of a first session: There’s usually the fed-up wife and the husband who’s reluctantly agreed to come to therapy.
In the clip below, Jette Simon, a Senior Clinical Instructor in Imago Therapy, offers a step-by-step account of how she goes about creating a safe therapeutic space for both partners—despite their history and conflicts—and begins to engage them in a process of change.
You’ll gain so much valuable, actionable information when you join my conversation with Jette. The session is part of our popular webcast series:
