A Couple State of Mind: Insights into Couple Relating and Therapeutic Work with Couples
Saturday 29 June 2019 - London
With speakers Mary Morgan and Stanley Ruszczynski

Such states can be enacted in an attempt to manage threats and a strong theoretical framework for the therapist is needed in order not to be derailed by splitting, unpredictable and hostile enactments. The talks will be followed by a live supervision session with both speakers.
A psychotherapy trainee is someone undertaking a therapy training course of at least 8 hours study per week.
