Working with Explosive Couples – Gottman Institute Webinar

March 10 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Working with Explosive Couples

If you are a therapist who works with couples, you are going to experience those cringe-worthy moments when your clients get into conflict. Some clients will even become so emotionally dysregulated that they get into high conflict. If you have been in this situation, you may not have known exactly how to handle these situations and have become triggered by the anger in the room. Some clinicians get so overwhelmed they have felt like they wanted to crawl under the couch and hide when dealing with explosive couples. This doesn’t have to be you!!

Attend this webinar to learn from Certified Gottman Therapist Dr. Dana McNeil how to take leadership in your interactions, bring the right attitude, and find the right attunement with couples who escalate in session. Learn how to mentally prepare yourself for the potential for couples to have outbursts and engage in verbal attacks while increasing your confidence in your ability to gain control of the room and restore peace.

Evaluate tools and interventions that will help you gain knowledge and options to use with couples who get overwhelmed and devolve into criticism and contempt. Find your voice in the room so you can become the therapist couples not only learn from but respect.
