209/309 – Creating a New Reality in Couples Therapy

Breaking Free of Weekly Sessions
HEDY SCHLEIFER

Everything we’re learning about the brain and the challenge of transforming deeply engrained emotional patterns tells us that the weekly appointment approach of traditional therapy is a limiting, highly flawed format. To help couples create new realities and move into a fuller experience of intimate connectedness, we need to provide opportunities for more immersive learning that fully engages the mind, body, and spirit of both partners. This workshop presents an intensive approach to helping couples transform their relationship. You’ll learn:

  • A step-by-step, experiential, multiday format that can provide a powerful boost to once-a-week therapy for guiding couples to explore a new style of connection and intimacy
  • How to expand mutual empathy by teaching partners how to “visit” each other’s emotional neighborhoods and better understand even the most painful places in their psyches
  • Strategies for guiding each partner to meet in a “main square” that they can mutually inhabit in emotional alignment with each other

7:00 PM Friday Dinner Event

My Most Unforgettable Session: An Evening of Storytelling
Courtney Armstrong, Mary Jo Barrett, Margaret Nichols, Terry Real, Hedy Schleifer, Ron Taffel

Join six Master Therapists as they engage in the art of storytelling and
invite you into an evening of deep listening and authentic experience.
As in the acclaimed first-person storytelling program The Moth, each
therapist will recount a deeply felt, real-life experience that will inspire,
provoke, and enchant. The more you listen, the more you’ll feel like
you’re huddled around a campfire exchanging stories and sharing insights in an
experience of communal discovery.

Each therapist will reveal a tale from the heart about a session, a client, or a
therapeutic moment that stands out from all the others because it was . . . the most
meaningful? Surprising? Humbling? Explosive? Hilarious? Come and find out!
Whether told from the point of view of the therapist, client, or supervisor,
the story will be a no-holds barred revelation ranging the gamut of emotions of
empathy, fear, suffering, celebration, pain, intimacy, embarrassment, and wonder.
You’ll leave with a deepened sense of what it means at the core to be a therapist.
