Dr. Bader offers an innovative couples therapy training program specially designed for therapists who live too far away to attend our local groups. This 12-month course by Internet and telephone includes ongoing personalized answers for your unique challenges, plus written lessons and conference calls. It’s called, “The Developmental Model of Couples Therapy: Integrating Attachment, Differentiation, and Neuroscience in Couples Therapy.”  The course meets requirements for 36 hours of continuing education for most healthcare providers.
