Working with Couples              21st April 2018      10am – 4pm
 
A one day training workshop with Harriet Drake
Couples often present unique dilemmas to therapists and we cannot apply individual therapy solutions in such instances.  This workshop will offer an introduction to working with couples. By drawing on clinical work and using case vignettes participants will gain an understanding of how applying couple theory to practice can helpfully illuminate some of the unconscious dynamics driving relationship distress.  Specifically, the day will focus on the assessment and formulation process with couples and how to foster an effective therapeutic alliance, some of the ethical dilemmas surrounding confidentiality which are often encountered and practical interventions to reduce conflict and increase support within the couple.  
There will be opportunities throughout the day for participants to discuss their own casework and consider how they can effectively work with specific difficulties that they have encountered in couple work.
 
Harriet Drake is a couple psychodynamic psychotherapist and psychosexual counsellor working in private practice and at the Tavistock Centre for Couple Relationships where she was formerly the Lead trainer in Couple Therapy for Depression for IAPT services. Harriet is involved in the delivery of training and the supervision of therapists working for IAPT services within the NHS across the country.  She has co –authored “Couple Therapy for Depression: a clinician’s guide to integrative practice” which was published in 2014 by OUP.

Working with Uncertainty an Existential perspective
How do we as therapists work with uncertainty?  Existential therapy assumes a basis of relatedness and this one-day workshop will challenge how far we can go with this.  No prior existential training is necessary.
