ICP+P’s 20th Annual Conference A Relational Psychoanalytic Approach to Couples Therapy with Philip Ringstrom, PhD, PsyD

Dr. Ringstrom will discuss his model for working relationally with couples at our 20th Annual Conference, on Saturday, May 17, 2014. The topic of Dr. Ringstrom’s newest book, a Relational Approach to Conjoint Therapy (The Analytic Press) will be the focus of the conference.

For the morning, Dr. Ringstrom will present his model, with plenty of illustrative clinical material. Attendees will then break into discussion groups led by expert facilitators to generate questions. Based on the groups’ questions, Barbara Shapard, MSW will dialogue with Dr. Ringstrom.

In the afternoon, Leslie Smith, Ph.D. will present a couples case, which Dr. Ringstrom and Michael Wannon, Ph.D. will discuss. There will also be open discussion with the audience about the case, followed by another opportunity for small groups to explore the clinical material.
