Even a highly seasoned couples therapist can feel out of sync when encountering unfamiliar cultural patterns in a marriage. Similarly, the stresses of cultural differences between partners in an intimate relationship can exacerbate the tension within the union.
This training will help participants understand the facets that define culture and how culture can be used as a strength within a relationship. Through interactive discussion and activities participant will gain a deeper understanding of the importance of culture, and its role in the therapeutic alliance, in couples counseling. You will gain an understanding of how cultural views can cause a barrier to treatment and even deter clients from coming to therapy. The Facilitators will use case studies of couples of various backgrounds and will look at effective methods, Gottman and others, for working with minority couples.
This training will improve participant’s insight of how cultural biases exist and how to identify this through comprehensive assessment of the couple, and ongoing self-assessment. Best practices and research will be discussed to conclude the workshop. (Presented by: The Relationship Boosters, Monika Ward, LCSW-C, Dr. Kia James, EdD, LCPC and, Carol Ann Trotman, LCPC)
