20th Annual Conference
Saturday, May 17, 2014
9 am – 4:30 pm
National 4-H Conference Center
7100 Connecticut Avenue, Chevy Chase, Maryland 20815
Dr. Ringstrom will discuss his model for doing relational couples work. Treatment goals include actualization of self experience in an intimate relationship, the capacity for mutual recognition, and the relationship having a mind of its own.
Based on his new book, A Relational Psychoanalytic Approach to Couples Psychotherapy, Dr. Ringstrom will describe six steps in which these themes are achieved. The steps wed theory and practice, are non-linear, and offer specific clinical guidelines for working with couples. His presentation will use plenty of illustrative clinical material to bring the concepts to life.
Additionally, there will be a case presentation and small group discussions.
