In this simulated session, Ellyn demonstrates how to dismantle a wife’s negative view of her husband’s selfishness. This unrelenting belief contributes to the persistence of anger, distance and limited problem solving options. See how Ellyn gently but persistently challenges this couple to understand their misperception and begin to connect in a more loving way.

Description

You see them every week – partners in distressed relationships who maintain such strong, negative views of one another that there’s a stranglehold on their relationship. How can you help them see more clearly and reconnect?

These couples’ negative views are strongly entrenched and they do not shift easily. Instead of using data to evolve a more positive view, these partners tend to configure reality in ways that support their negative pictures. They then look for evidence to support these negative projections. In some cases, they’ve been regarding others in their important relationships this way since childhood.

The high level of distress that is a constant in these relationships will not dissipate without a significant change in the negative view. But how to change it, when it is their reality, and they’re not easily shaken from it?

In this simulated session, Ellyn demonstrates how to dismantle a wife’s negative view of her husband’s selfishness. This unrelenting belief contributes to the persistence of anger, distance and limited problem solving options. See how Ellyn gently but persistently challenges this couple to understand their misperception and begin to connect in a more loving way.

You will learn a twelve step process for identifying, confronting and untangling negative and destructive beliefs.

You will receive the DVD and also a transcript of a session with a real couple where you can follow along as Ellyn works with the projection of selfishness.

You will be able to use this process actively with your own clients to more skillfully intervene in their destructive interaction.

A Glossary of Terms that are sometimes Confusing

Couples Therapy is a counseling procedure that seeks to improve the adjustment of two people who have created an interdependent relationship. There are no standard procedures to help two people improve their adjustments to each other. Generally, a more experienced therapist will offer more perspectives and tools to a couple. Length of treatment will depend on severity of problems, motivation and skills of the therapist. A couple can be dating, living together, married or separating and may be gay, lesbian or heterosexual.

Marriage Therapy is a term often used interchangeably with marriage counseling. The term marriage implies two people have created a union sanctioned by a government or religious institution. The methods used in marriage counseling, marriage therapy and couples therapy are interchangeable and depend more on the specific challenges of each unique couple.

Psychotherapy is one or more processes to help improve psychological and emotional functioning. Examples are psychoanalysis, cognitive therapy, behavior therapy, Gestalt therapy, Transactional Analysis, Rational-Emotive therapy, or group therapy. Many forms of psychotherapy are blends of different approaches. For example, newer forms of psychotherapy called energy psychology draw upon recent advances in brain and neuroscience. These approaches often build on cognitive behavioral methods.

Clinical Psychologist. After graduating from college, it usually takes about five years of graduate school to get a Ph.D. in Psycholgy. It then requires an additional two years of supervision and passing a written (and often) an oral exam. There are a few states that allow psychologists to prescribe medications (with additional training) but that is uncommon.

Psychiatrist. After graduation from medical school, there is a generally a 4-year psychiatric residency. After the completion of this training, psychiatrists must pass an exam issued by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology to obtain certification and legally practice in the field. Psychiatrists can prescribe medications.

Clinical Social Worker. This profession usually requires two years of study after obtaining an undergraduate degree. While specific licensure requirements vary by state, most require clinical social workers to obtain 3,000 hours or 2 years of supervised clinical experience, after obtaining a Masters degree. Social workers can also specialize in diverse fields such as human services management, social welfare analysis, community organizing, social and community development, and social and political research.

Marriage and Family Therapist. Obtaining this license requires a Masters degree which takes approximately two years of post graduate study. The license also requires 3000 hours of supervised work and passing written exams.
