06.07.2011 Posted In: NP006 Couples Therapy: Today and Tomorrow By Psychotherapy Networker
Welcome to the relaunched series of New Perspectives on Practice: Couples Therapy Today and Tomorrow. This practical, nuts-and-bolts first session with William Doherty, a seasoned couples therapist, will explore the most common mistakes therapists make in treating couples, and will provide strategies for how to avoid making these errors. Doherty will go over the most common obstacles to effective couples therapy, how to best structure couples’ sessions, how not to undermine a couple’s commitment, and much more.
In the inaugural series, course participants used the Comment Boards as a way to share what they thought was most relevant or interesting from the sessions, and to ask questions of the presenters and of each other. It often led to back-and-forth discussions between course participants and presenters. We invite you to use the Comment Boards in the same way, after each session and after completing the course.
What was most striking about this session with William Doherty? Did this session bring up any similar experiences? Any questions? We encourage everyone to use the Comment Boards as a forum for reflection, thoughts, and questions. Thanks so much for your participation, and welcome to this extremely relevant and lively series!

Sue Johnson, one of the originators of Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT) will discuss, in today’s session, how Attachment Theory can help clinicians conduct effective therapy, particularly in couples work.
She’ll cover how to use an understanding of Attachment Therapy to enhance emotional presence with clients, how to work with clients’ emotions during therapy, how therapists’ own attachment relationships can affect the therapeutic process, and much more.
After listening to this session, “Attachment Patterns in Couples Relationships,” please take a few minutes to reflect on what you’ve learned so far in this webinar, to ask any questions you may have, or what you thought was most interesting and relevant. We invite you to include your name and hometown and to respond to other participants’ comments and questions, as always.
