How can therapists get to the root of relational trauma to promote healing and repair?

It’s normal to have occasional arguments or tense moments in our intimate relationships.

Yet according to relationship and marriage expert Dr. John Gottman, couples wait an average of six years before getting help—suffering needlessly (and silently) in broken or dysfunctional relationships.

And when couples are unable to open up emotionally—or they fall into long-term unhealthy behavioral patterns that sabotage connection—it becomes more challenging to communicate effectively to restore trust and intimacy.

As therapists, we see the complexity, the frustration, the confusion, isolation, control, conflict…we see when people can’t communicate or move forward…they stay stuck or they just give up.

The problem is that when we feel these emotions bubble to the surface, most of us tend to revert to the “Life Script” we experienced in our earliest caregiving relationships—forming the blueprint for how we think, behave and (re)act as adults.

Unfortunately, these unresolved attachment wounds can make it much harder for us to develop, maintain or “fix” the broken connections in our most intimate relationships.

The good news is that attachment styles aren’t set in stone. We are all capable of healing and change.

No matter how long you’ve been in practice—relationship therapy is hard. It’s easy to feel overwhelmed or even feel helpless when we can’t ‘fix’ a relationship that’s breaking or broken beyond repair.

After all, adult relationships are so varied, complex and nuanced, that what we’ve learned in theory doesn’t always translate into the ability to know how to use it in a pragmatic way.

So you can work months and months with a couple and still not feel as if you’re making enough progress to make a difference and save the relationship.

But our clients can’t do it alone. Human beings are not wired to heal in isolation.

This is why your clients are so desperate for your help…and why it’s so important for you to find a framework you know will work time and again.

The best way to form healthier, more secure attachments is to help our clients know and understand themselves better. By incorporating an attachment and trauma perspective into our work, we can facilitate understanding, change—and most importantly—healing.

In this training, Dr. Levy will show you how a practical, skills-building approach to couples’ therapy can help restore secure attachment and allow for true connection in any relationship.

Help yourself and your clients recognize attachment system dynamics, so you can guide the conversation away from conflict toward secure attachment and begin moving couples to a place of healing and intimacy more quickly and efficiently.

Drawing from his 40+ years of experience, Dr. Levy will introduce you to his invaluable
“Life Script” assessment tool, which helps you uncover the root cause of relational trauma,
SO you can work with clients more efficiently and effectively.

During the 90-minute training, Dr. Levy will also show client demo video clips-showing how he works with couples sharing insights and practical tips you can apply immediately to your clinical work.

Learn how to work from a place of secure attachment yourself, so you have greater confidence you can stay fully present, and attuned to the needs and language of different
attachment style dynamics.
