This workshop has been re-located to the GPA Office at 13 Corporate Blvd. NE, Suite 220, Atlanta, GA. It was previously scheduled to be off-site, but it has been moved back to our office.

The purpose of this workshop is to offer psychologists working with marital and couple therapy a means of addressing the systemic patterns that not only cause, but actually reinforce distress and gridlock in marriages. We will identify the various forms of distressed patterns that play out in marriages as well as learn to harness the emotional processes that drive them.

The workshop will offer didactic information and video recordings of actual sessions to demonstrate the technique and processes, as well as exercises for the participants to be able to practice what they are learning and get a “feel” for working in this manner.
