A Can of Worms: Legal & Ethical Issues in Couples & Family Therapy



You asked...we listened.

Our Fall Anatomy of Intimacy Workshops were a rousing success, and you told us to continue inviting the masters of couples therapy from varied perspectives for more in-depth programs. You asked to learn more detail about the clinical applications of their work and to gain skills usable on Monday morning when facing your next tough couple.

With that in mind, our Spring 2016 offerings include three outstanding experts for all-day intensive clinical workshops to cover an array of the toughest issues in couples therapy. Dr. Philip Ringstrom will present a Relational Psychoanalytic Approach to Couples Therapy. Back by popular demand is Dr. Tammy Nelson who will share her expertise on integrating couples and sex therapy with a focus on Rekindling Desire in Sex Starved Relationships. A special bonus this year is a unique Law and Ethics workshop A Can of Worms: Legal and Ethical Issues in Couples and Family Therapy by the renowned attorney/psychologist Dr. Steven Frankel

A special bonus for this series is a unique Law and Ethics workshop focusing solely on couples and family therapy issues with the renowned attorney/psychologist Steven Frankel.

The Foundation for the Contemporary Family is underwriting part of the total cost to make this kind of training more affordable. A complimentary lunch on both days is also included.

Please join us for a stimulating series of workshops.
