The Effectiveness of Couple Therapy
Our study shows improvments in relationships and mental health


Unique discussion forum for couple therapists and online seminars on couple psychodynamics available for limited number of participants

Couple and individual therapists have been offered the opportunity to participate in two ground breaking new interactive online services being launched in January.

For the first time ever, TCCR will be enabling practitioners to participate in a full online training. The course, entitled; The Psychodynamics of Couple Relationships: Readings in Love and Hate provides a term of live online seminars and video presentations which will explore the psychodynamics of couple relationships.

Devised to be in line with TCCR’s MA programmes ( MA in Couple & Individual Psychodynamic Counselling & Psychotherapy , MA in Couple Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy and MSc in Psychosexual and Relationship Therapy), the expertly compiled reading seminar will be facilitated by Linsey Blair, via an innovative blend of shared papers and video presentations by leading theoreticians in the field, augmented by weekly live on-line seminars to discuss the papers and explore clinical implications and examples. An online student room / group blog will add to the learning dynamic by creating a trainee community for the length of the study.

The Readings in Love and Hate training starts in January 2016 and is suitable for therapists with some understanding of psychoanalytic concepts interested in finding out more about the application of psychoanalytical theory to couple work. The intake is limited to 16 places, with applications open now. Additionally interested parties benefit from an early bird reduced rate of £395 a saving of £55 on the headline price.

Practitioners who are already working in the field of couple therapy can participate in another new initiative, an online practitioner group.  The Tavistock Centre for Couple Relationships is looking for 9 practitioners in psychodynamically informed couple work to join a web based set of weekly clinical professional seminars.

Participants can share and explore their clinical work with couples. TCCR’s  Director of Training, Maureen Boerma, senior couple psychoanalytic psychotherapist, will be facilitating this weekly group, which will run in 2016 from January until March.

Of the new developments TCCR’s Head of Training, Maureen Boerma said:

“The benefits of online training and professional exchange are manifest. As the world leader in couple therapy TCCR is now able to offer therapists the opportunity to access some of our cutting edge thinking, flexibly from anywhere around the globe. Both of our offerings will allow for the crucial element that digital gives, the ability to quickly take in, learn and exchange a variety of perspectives. As well as the value of our training I am particularly delighted to be leading a network of couple practitioners in an online forum, which we think may be the first of its kind , certainly in the UK couple therapy arena.”
