Couples therapy is complicated and challenging; the complexity of our socio-political-cultural contexts during this worldwide health crisis has made it more so. The persistent stress of the pandemic has been a strain on couples and therapists alike. Effective couples therapy requires the ability to understand and address many types of intersectional identities, family forms, ethnicities, and relational challenges within the larger cultural context. Increased challenges are pushing therapists to address emerging issues.This course will center on the latest advances in treatment and research in couples therapy. Dynamics of relationships and patterns of interaction that negatively impact relationships will be discussed, as well as a variety of treatment interventions to demonstrate what works best for various scenarios. Clinicians will gain strategies to help advance their treatment skills and improve their effectiveness.Speakers will describe several specific therapy models as well as address many challenges unique to couples therapy, including the impact of culture, gender, and intersectionality on couples, as well as the use of meaning making, mindful self-compassion and spirituality in couples therapy. Finally, participants will learn tips and techniques for providing successful telehealth sessions with couples in the expanded virtual world.
