Event Details

In Each Other’s Care: The Psychobiological 

Approach to Couples Therapy (PACT)

 

Nothing is more important in our lives than our relationships, and as therapists, we work diligently with couples to improve and enhance their relationships. Please join us for an exciting cutting-edge program for couples therapy. The Psychobiological Approach to Couples Therapy (PACT) was developed by psychologist, Dr. Stan Tatkin. It is a fusion of attachment theory, developmental neuroscience, and arousal regulation to effectively treat couples, including the most challenging couples (e.g., personality disorders, trauma-related issues, high conflict couples).  By understanding the human need for connection, couples can form and deepen more secure attachments by developing secure-functioning relationships based on mutuality, sensitivity, collaboration, and fairness. PACT therapy is an interactive and experiential approach which involves the therapist’s use of self as part of the couple-therapist triad.

Program Objectives:

  • Distinguish the four types of arousal regulation (autoregulation, self-regulation, interactive regulation, and external regulation) and their functions. 
  • Describe how default strategies for managing conflict can lead to disengagement or adversarial engagement (pro-self vs. pro-relationship strategies). 
  • Learn five co-regulation strategies to use in the couple relationship. 
  • Define window of tolerance as it relates to the therapist’s arousal regulation. Identify and practice three self-regulation skills.

NCSCSW will announce its 2019 scholarship recipients at the beginning of the program. 

This conference provides 3 contact hours of continuing education credit for social workers. Certificates will be provided onsite.
