Congruence Couple Therapy (CCT) for gambling and substance use (workshop series)


This advanced training opportunity is being offered to clinicians with five or more years of experience working with gambling, gaming or technology use clients. There will be six weekly workshops that are limited to a small group to allow for discussion and role-play.

Congruence Couple Therapy is a humanistic, integrative, trauma-informed model that provides a theoretical map to guide clinicians to intervene systemically among four inner-outer and past-present dimensions. Emotion regulation and congruent communication help clients shift from dysfunctional to effective patterns in relation to self and other. Using an interactive format, participants will engage in discussions and role-play of case vignettes on how CCT can be applied to individual and couple clinical issues with evidence from research. Each workshop will focus on a specific topic:

  • Introduction to CCT & Philosophical Underpinnings
  • Fostering Hope, Balancing Alliance, Assessment
  • Congruent Communication
  • Linking the Four Dimensions (Part 1)
  • Linking the Four Dimensions (Part 2)
  • Consolidation and Summation.

The workshops will take place on the same day and time each week (February 3rd, 10th, 17th, 24th, March 3rd and 10th from 10:30 to 12:30 hours (12 CEUs). Please note that you may be contacted to confirm your eligibility.
