(NEW) Online Training – Trauma Informed Couples Therapy

December 13 Login to Zoom 8:30am; Training 8:45am-4:15pm (EST) $169, 6 CEUs Presenter: Robyn E. Brickel, MA, LMFT Zoom.us, MD + Google Map

Couples usually seek couples or marriage counseling when they’re dysregulated. They’re arguing or fighting because something’s happened—an affair, drinking, drug use — or they keep having the same argument without solving anything. They have reached a point of frustration or anger that feels impassable.

Despite this pain, they come to therapy because they care enough about each other and want to figure it out.

This class will share my trauma-informed approach to working with couples in therapy. I will explain what trauma-informed couples therapy looks like and why it matters in helping couples create a relationship that feels safe and loving.
