You asked...we listened.

The compelling feedback from the Anatomy of Intimacy Workshop series last year told us that you are eager for more in-depth training in couples therapy. You told us to keep inviting the best experts for all-day workshops to more deeply learn the clinical applications of their work and gain usable skills

For the 2015-2016 series, we are bringing five outstanding masters in the field for all-day intensive clinical workshops to cover an array of the toughest issues in couples therapy—Bill Doherty, Ellyn Bader and Peter Pearson, Philip Ringstrom and Tammy Nelson. We asked these talented therapists to each spend a full day presenting their work, with rich clinical examples, giving you specific techniques that you can apply in your practice.

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.
