Working with couples can often feel challenging, sometimes frustrating, other times invigorating, but usually dynamic and complex. Determining whether or not we’re actually helping our couples move toward their goals can also feel vague and difficult to determine at times. Fortunately, the evidenced-based principles of Deliberate Practice (DP) provide a framework that empowers us as couples therapists to continuously improve our effectiveness over the course of our careers.
This 2-hour online workshop will cover the major principles of Deliberate Practice (DP), and how they can be applied to the practice of couples therapy in way that enhances professional development and improves clinical outcomes.
Cancellations must be requested at least two weeks prior to the workshop date and are subject to a $15 processing fee.
