This full-day course will explore the impact of alcohol and substance misuse on the couple relationship. The function of the substance in the relationship will be considered using psychodynamic principles, as will the couple’s interaction and collusive patterns of relating.
Addiction in one or both members of a couple can exacerbate problematic dynamics, and can lead to difficulties in the couple’s sexual relationship. One partner may be identified as the patient, holding the destructive aspects of the relationship. Hostility and aggression can become more evident, leading to alienation, and acting as a barrier to emotional closeness.
Liz Hamlin, an experienced psychotherapist and trainer, will draw on couple psychoanalytic theory to illuminate clinical examples. Consideration will be given to the kinds of questions that might be asked in an assessment. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own clinical experience in working with couples with addiction for discussion during the day..
