Webinar: Slicing Down: Deepening Emotional States in Couples Therapy


“In Gestalt therapy the phenomenology of emotions guides our contact experience and shapes our interactions” Peter H. Dreitzel

Successful couples therapy pivots around deepening awareness of emotions between partners: Deepened emotions, disclosed in a new way, creates new contact experiences of positive reaching and responding between partners.

Although often a stalwart of individual therapy, many couples therapists can struggle with knowing how to support partners and the relationship into deeper primary emotional states. Where working phenomenologically and within field orientated approaches can become lost in the conflict and negative interactions of the couple.
