Childhood trauma leaves survivors with a fundamental mistrust in the safety of relationships. As adults, survivors develop defenses against vulnerability, commitment and emotion—often shutting down or getting stuck in mutually escalating conflicts with their partner. This workshop will demonstrate two different styles of intervention with these clients. One will emphasize challenging the couple’s ability to be emotionally authentic; the other will focus on the importance of somatic communication in helping couples connect. These two days will feature a unique collaboration between two leading therapists known for their original thinking, effective innovations in psychotherapy and highly engaging and dynamic presentation styles. Therapists will gain important new knowledge about the dynamics that make couples with trauma history the most difficult to help, as well as new tools that will greatly enhance their couples therapy repertoire.


Objectives - Participants will be able to describe:

• How to help partners identify the role of trauma in their troubled relationships

• How to challenge couples to move beyond their stories and automatic responses

• How to change the conversation to help the couple repair with new patterns of response

• How to use nonverbal communication to reduce conflict and connect safely

• How to use somatic awareness and movement to bring about peace

• How to evoke a couple’s inherent capacity for authentic emotional connection and expression
