Terry Real will introduce participants to his groundbreaking, new art form of Relational Life Therapy (RLT). This model of therapy is akin to "relationship ju-jitsu", in which couples build on each other's momentum and get what they need by empowering their partner to give it to them.
This Web Conference is intermediate instructional level and designed to help clinicians:
1) Use leverage to break through impasses in couples therapy and turn the couple towards progress;
2) Describe Relational Life Therapy tools such as: Scanning for Addictions, Acting Out Issues, Stance/Stance and the Dance, Family of Origin, and Inner Child Issues;
3) Empower the "latent" and reconnect the "blatant” to achieve a renewed bond going forward in their therapy.
Terry Real, LICSW
Before launching his groundbreaking new company, REAL Relational Solutions, Terry founded the Relational Life Institute, (formed in 2002 as The Relational Recovery Institute). A family therapist and teacher for more than twenty years, Terry is the best-selling author of I Don’t Want to Talk About It: Overcoming the Secret Legacy of Male Depression (Scribner, 1997), the straight-talking How Can I Get Through to You? Reconnecting Men and Women (Scribner, 2002), and most recently The New Rules of Marriage: What You Need to Make Love Work (Random House). Terry knows how to lead couples on a step-by-step journey to greater intimacy — and greater personal fulfillment.
A senior faculty member of the Family Institute of Cambridge in Massachusetts and a retired Clinical Fellow of the Meadows Institute in Arizona, Terry has worked with thousands of individuals, couples, and fellow therapists. Through his books, the Institute, and workshops around the country, Terry helps women and men, parents and non-parents, to help them create the connection they desire in their relationships.
Terry's work, with its rigorous common-sense approach, speaks to both men and women. His ideas on men's issues and on couple's therapy have been celebrated in venues from the Today Show and 20/20, to Oprah and The New York Times. He is a regular contributor to Good Morning America.
