High Impact Couples Therapy: How to Produce Deep Change Quickly in Troubled Clients

In this two-part workshop participants will learn six steps for a powerful, transformative therapeutic experience. By harnessing the wish for and skills of attachment and relationship, you will see how to burrow deep into each partner’s character and family of origin trauma in the presence of one another.

Six Steps of High Impact Couples Therapy:

1- Form a relational diagnosis – where are they stuck?

2- Articulate and feedback to the couple the repeating loop they’re mired in.

3- Joining Through The Truth: Utilizing the art of lovingly confronting a client in a way that leaves him or her feeling more trusting and closer to you.

4- Moving through stance into family of origin – Where did you learn this? How did this person’s particular Adaptive Child come into being?

5- How to imaginatively bring the client’s younger Adaptive Child into the room to dialogue with the Functional Adult part of the self – separating or, “unblending” them. Relational health comes when we equip our clients to love their inner parts and not foist them off on their partner to look after.

6- Rebuilding, Reconnecting - How to use yourself to amplify progress, cut through both shame and grandiosity, reconnect closed hearts even in the face of great hurt, anger, or skepticism. This final step is about rebuilding the relationship, remembering who you are to each other, easing defenses and aggressive behaviors, helping them learn to cherish one another.


Equip your clients with specific sophisticated relational skills:

  • How to hold yourself in warm regard even when you mess up.
  • How to have good boundaries.
  • How to speak up for yourself with love and respond non-defensively, and with a generous heart.

In phase one, the goal is invite our clients to wake up their dormant conscience, or their wish to connect, or their courage to relax self-protection.

Phase Two is early childhood trauma work – in each ohter's presence

Phase Three is rebuilding the warm connection, learning again how to cherish each other, learning and practicing over and over again key relational skills.
