Los Angeles, CA
A Sensorimotor Approach to Couples Therapy
MAY 4, 2018 - MAY 5, 2018
Join senior SPI Trainer Kekuni Minton, PhD (Presenter) and SPI Trainer and Los Angeles Regional Coordinator Mason A. Sommers, PhD (Discussant) for a two-day workshop on couples therapy.
In couples therapy, the emphasis has been on cognitive and emotional approaches to problem solving and intimacy. However, little attention has been given to the actual body state that is the basis of the two main modes of human interaction: reactive and relational. There may be many good reasons for operating in a reactive mode: attachment injuries, trauma, a bad history of adult relationships. Alternatively, many skills must be developed to sustain a relational mode in couple's interactions.
In this workshop we will describe major reactive patterns in both the body and the brain, as well as primary dysfunctional attachment strategies. Special attention will be given to skill development in mindfulness, attunement, boundaries, parts work, object relations, and differentiation. We will exercise techniques and interventions to convert these reactive patterns to a relational mode.
At the conclusion of the program, attendees will be able to:
