Enhancing Couple & Family Connections

Expressive Therapies as Awareness and Communication Catalysts

This three-day training will empower you to use Expressive Therapies in counselling with couples and families. You will learn ways to invite couples and families to engage with creative arts, somatic focus, symbol work, and role-play as part of their journey in counselling. The program builds on the long history of activity-based interventions from the many schools of family and couple therapy. Given the highly charged atmospheres encountered in family and couples' sessions, it makes sense to include a range of interventions that engage deeper self-reflection and emotional awareness, to bring clarity to interpersonal dynamics. Experiential understanding motivates development of new positive relating.


We will integrate evidence-based methods from Emotion-Focused Therapy, Experiential Family Therapy, as well as research insights from the Gottman's. While expressive, creative counselling methods support clients of all ages, this training will also include ways to effectively include children in family sessions. There will be a focus for couples on ways family-of-origin experiences and attachment patterns can influence current relating.
