For psychotherapists, coaches, and pastoral counselors.
Are you looking for a dynamic way to bring aliveness to your work with couples? Intimacy from the Inside Out is a couples therapy model, drawn from Internal Family Systems (IFS) psychotherapy, that integrates aspects of psychodynamic theory, systems thinking, and neuroscience. It uses the intimate relationship as a vehicle for growth and transformation of the individual as well as the couple, helping people make sense of their life experience in a safe and collaborative way.
In this training, you
- Learn an effective method of relationship work
- Increase your confidence in working with couples
- Better understand the challenges of systemic work
This powerful model of couples therapy helps your clients understand anger, emotional pain, and the needs that lie beneath contentious patterns of relating; communicate more skillfully; and access their capacity for openhearted connection.
