Coming in 2017-2018

Couples in Recovery; Love Addiction; Acceptance & Change; Infidelity, Cybersex & Forgiveness

The Anatomy of Intimacy series chooses topics based on your feedback and continues to invite the best and brightest of couples therapy from varied perspectives to offer you in-depth clinical training and interventions you can use with clients on Monday morning.

With that in mind, our lineup for 2017–2018 is: Dr. Robert Navarra will present Couples & Addiction, which is an innovative relational approach to recovery for the addicted person and partner. Dr. Alexandra Katehakis will share her work with Love Addiction, using a psychobiological approach, strengthening your confidence in working affectively and somatically.

In the Spring, we have Dr. Andrew Christensen presenting his Integrative Behavioral Couples Therapy, which incorporates an emotional focus. And back by popular demand is Dr. Janis Abrahms Spring with refinements to her radical model of treating infidelity with innovative protocols for dealing with secrets, cybersex, and forgiveness.

And the Foundation for the Contemporary Family is still underwriting the programs to keep tuition low and cover the cost of the popular buffet lunch on the patio!
