This bundle delivers three of our most popular resources, all working together for you to make a strong and impressive start with new couples in your practice.
#1: Rethinking First Sessions
A 60-minute audio of Dr. Peter Pearson sharing his experimentation and success with a new approach to first sessions.
Pete covers these points and many more:
What questions therapists typically ask in a first session
Why not to ask those questions, and what happens when you do
What questions to ask, and how to transition from these new questions into positive progress
This audio training comes with a 12-page summary of the session and links to two educational, motivational videos available on YouTube that Pete shows new couples.
#2: Stepping Stones to Intimacy (Pack of 25 brochures)
The Stepping Stones brochure is a great tool to give every new couple. It describes normal relationship stages of the Developmental Model of Couples Therapy and provides them a way to choose next steps in their evolution.
#3: Tell Me No Lies (Paperback book)
This book was written for the public but covers many aspects of truth in relationships that therapists will find fascinating and therapeutic:
The 4 stages every couple goes through
How to help couples create honesty, curiosity, and vulnerability for a deeper, more rewarding marriage
Complexity of honesty versus deception in marriage
Warning signs that a couple hasn't mastered honesty and vulnerability: the dark side of the honeymoon, the stalemate, freedom unhinged
