This interactive workshop series (12 hrs.) offers a theoretical, practical and evidence-based introduction to Congruence Couple Therapy (CCT). CCT is a humanistic, systemic, trauma-informed model that utilizes the couple relationship as a resource to create significant clinical outcomes for addiction and mental health. It offers a conceptual shift away from focusing solely on the individual and symptom reduction to address the complex and relational issues that often underlie gambling and addictive disorders. Family of origin influences, couple communication, self-awareness, self-esteem, and life transitions are addressed. Participants will engage in discussion of cases and clinical vignettes on how CCT can be applied to clinical presentations of problem gambling, substance use, and other co-occurring mental health issues.
2-hour sessions over 6 Saturdays, 3-5 p.m. EST.
