The therapist’s state of mind and its role in working with separated and divorcing couples
Couple therapists are trained to work consistently with the relationship as the 'patient' in the room. The situation of divorce and separation places this therapeutic position under enormous strain.
In this full-day CPD, Dr Avi Shmueli, head of the Tavistock Relationships divorce and separation service, will consider the couple therapist’s clinical state of mind and the impact on the therapist of working in the context of divorce and separation.
He will consider the different demands of working with divorce and separation and the particular states of mind the couple therapist is invited to experience and work with.
The study day will consider relevant theory and clinical examples, and participants are encouraged to bring clinical material for discussion.
The day is suitable for couple psychoanalytic psychotherapists and counsellors, couple counsellors, and all professionals working in the field of family justice.
