Couple and Family Therapy Mentoring Group

Each meeting is an opportunity to observe and discuss a video of Laurie working therapeutically with actual couples and families.  Through this close-up view of actual sessions and a guided discussion participants will:

 

  • Learn through “osmosis”, expanding their knowledge of interview skills and their range of techniques including, among others, circular questioning, structural enactment, using Gottman’s “Four Horsemen” and the Imago couples’ dialogue.
     

  • Develop greater perceptual skills  in observing family process.
     

  • Develop greater perceptual skills in observing the dynamics of the family/therapist interaction.
     

  • Refine their ability to hypothesis and conceptualise from information that emerges during the session.

 

 

The issues faced by the clients on these videos include:
 

  • Children’s behavior problems;
     

  • Parent – child conflict;
     

  • Couple conflict;
     

  • Loss and grief;
     

  • Dealing with the effects of trauma, domestic violence, separation and divorce.

 

This is an advanced group for therapists who have already completed  training equivalent to a Graduate Diploma or Masters level in couple and family therapy.
