Description

The Truth Of Love & Relationships - a one-day seminar

Despite innate sexual and attachment drives that compel our clients to form romantic relationships, many individuals struggle with barriers to intimacy and become stuck in chronic patterns that create stress and deprive them of love. Our efforts to assist clients with their intimacy fears, self-deception and complex defenses can range from psycho-education, therapeutic exploration, skills development and behavioural strategies. Whilst these approaches all have their merit, used on their own, they can fail to bring lasting change, sometimes causing clients to doubt their ability to open up to love.

To help our clients to open up to love we have to help them to transform their own relationship to their defenses and self-deception. When theior relationship to their own defences changes, their need to be in a defensive mode towards their partner can be transformed. For many, this is when they can find the truth of their love in their couple-relationships and as parents.

In this one-day workshop, Tim will lead participants through a framework that draws upon the couple therapy approaches as developed by Dr Dan Wile (Collaborative Couple Therapy), and Dr Richard Schwartz ( Internal Family Systems) as well as drawing upon the research of Dr John Gottman (The Gottman Institute). Tim will also draw upon attachment theory, and trauma appraoches in relation to barriers to intimacy and couple dynamics.

Tim will of course also showcase the strategies found in his book, The Relationship First Aid Kit. Participants will aslo receive digital and paper copies of the resources that Tim uses in his work with couples and individuals.

Participants will also be invited to use his tools and strategies together in reflective exercises, in particularly his 'Solve The Difficult Moment' strategy (drawn from Collaborative Couple Therapy) and his Emotional Problem-Solving Tool.

Please note that while morning and afternoon tea will be provided, Lunch is not provided. This helps to keep seminar fees lower and ensures that your specific dietary requirements can be met. There are a range of amazing eateries at the Convent all deliciously catering to the full range of dietary needs.

This seminar will allow participants to not only apply this approach to their work with couples and individuals, but will also offer opportunities for reflection on their own relationships and roles as partner and/or parents.

Numbers are limited to 26 attendees so please book your place before tickets are sold out. For further information call Timothy O'Leary on 0425786877
