Working effectively with couples in therapy requires specialized clinical skills. Having couples take on their own learning outside of the therapy hour can enhance the efficacy of couples work. WeConcile® is a program that provides this learning to couples. It also provides the WeConcile® Clinician Guide, an extensive tool couples therapists can integrate into their practices.
Through WeConcile®, couples learn about their perceptions and how they see each other and themselves. They delve into how their histories have impacted their ability to create a healthy relationship. They learn about their cycle actions that fuel their conflicts and the vulnerable needs and feelings that lie underneath. This learning opens new relationship vistas. It allows the couples more cognitive structure within which to process. It also enables the clinician more room for processing with the couple instead of using session time to educate the couple. The therapy session can become more productive because of the additional learning the couple is doing.
In this 2-hour continuing education web conference, Jennifer Lehr, LMFT will explain how clinicians can use WeConcile® as a tool in their couples therapy practice. Clinicians will learn the phases and steps of bringing the couple from cognitive understanding to vulnerable sharing and connection. Clinicians will learn the 24 levels of content, including “Relationship Basics,” “The Cycle,” “Attachment: A New Lens,” and “What Are Your Feelings?” as well as be guided on the process of couples therapy. At the end of this web conference, clinicians will feel more empowered to work with couples and understand how to use this educational program to make their couples work more effective and powerful.
This introductory instructional level web conference is designed to help clinicians:
