The 2021 advanced couple therapy online summer school will consider the effects of various kinds of traumatic experience on the life of the couple, and the capacity or otherwise for these ruptures to be survived.
Catastrophic experiences such as illness, bereavement, affairs and loss of employment, as well as experiences triggered by the social or political environment, may challenge a couple’s projective system as well as their capacity for thinking. Ruptures from the past may also overshadow the relationship in the here and now.
The summer school will explore how a couple can be helped in analytic couple psychotherapy to think about the meaning of the traumatic event.
Theoretical and clinical presentations will explore this thinking in terms of the couple relationship, and consider potential ways forward.
The advanced summer school is for couple-trained therapists already working in the field and provides a unique opportunity to immerse yourself in cutting-edge thinking with a world-leading couple psychoanalytic psychotherapy institute.
You will learn and grow as a couple therapist through lectures and twice-daily intensive clinical discussion groups and will study alongside like-minded people from the UK and around the world. Seminars and clinical discussion groups will be led by Tavistock Relationships staff members, all experienced couple therapists, including David Hewison and Andrew Balfour.
