Presenter: Dr. Lisa Firestone
1.5 CE Credits – $25
What prevents most people from being able to sustain romantic, meaningful relationships that satisfy their needs and desires? Why do people often feel compelled to punish those closest to them? What qualities should a person look for when selecting a partner? What are the factors that determine whether partners will end up experiencing love and fulfillment in their relationship or suffering pain and distress? This workshop with Dr. Lisa Firestone helps answer these questions by providing participants with a theoretical model that integrates psychodynamic, existential and family systems frameworks in a manner that can increase clinicians’ understanding of and ability to assist individuals in developing and maintaining intimacy in their relationships. Interventions are introduced that can lead to enhanced communications, more personal relating and a heightened sense of individuality in each partner.
1. Apply techniques from Voice Therapy to help challenge clients’ negative thoughts toward themselves and their partners.
2. Explain how early childhood traumas limit an individual’s ability to maintain intimacy.
3. Describe how the Fantasy Bond can interfere with couple relationships.
Once payment is received, you will be e-mailed a full video recording of this Webinar along with all CE and presentation materials.
