Adelphi University Postgraduate Programs in Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy

The Postgraduate Psychotherapy Center
is offering the following FOUR SESSION SEMINAR

Couple Therapy: A Developmental Approach

Sundays 10AM – 1PM

April 29, May 6, 13, 20, 2012

Instructor: Michael D. Zentman, Ph.D.

Treating couples is not easy. If partners are not well integrated or if their relationship is in a fragile state, things can get difficult very quickly. Having a theoretical framework to understand the nature of a couple’s disharmony and possessing a set of clinical skills to respond to fast-moving relationship dynamics can make the difference between effective treatment and clinical chaos.

This twelve-hour seminar will focus on a model of couples therapy that integrates psychoanalytic and family systems theories and techniques. It relies on a developmental schema that maps the dynamics, structure, and emotional atmosphere of a relationship in order to generate a plan of treatment. This is an approach that addresses processes on interactional, structural, intra-psychic, and intergenerational levels. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss their cases and video recordings of treatment sessions will demonstrate clinical theory and techniques.

Prior experience with or current treatment of couples in not required.

Dr. Zentmani s the founding director of the Adelphi Postgraduate Program in Couple Therapy has been teaching and supervising couples therapy for 25 years.
