This externship is recommended to all professionals who counsel couples.
The four-day externship includes observation of live interviews, theory and clinical techniques, skill training exercises, and supervision in specific areas. Participants learn to see marital distress from an attachment perspective, help partners reprocess the emotional responses that maintain marital distress, shape new interactions and bonding events, and overcome therapeutic impasses.
