WEBINAR: Using imagery Re-scripting in couples therapy
Healing attachment wounds lies at the heart of many approaches to couples therapy. However, couples with significant trauma histories can be challenging for couples therapists to work with. Research suggests that early childhood trauma in one or both partners increases the likelihood of early termination of couples therapy. Imagery Re-scripting (ImR) has gained traction as a stand-alone treatment for individuals with a range of issues, including childhood trauma, so can it be applied to couples?
Imagery Rescripting for couples provides a tool to process trauma and building connection, showing promising results in early research. This presentation will explore ImR as an intervention that could be applied within a range of couples therapy approaches, including Emotion Focussed therapy.
This webinar will present Imagery re-scripting for couples therapists, covering
· an overview of the theoretical basis for Imagery re-scripting
· principles for using ImR safely with couples
· common types of early adversity and how to adapt for a range of presentations, including childhood sexual abuse, critical or physically abusive parents, childhood neglect, family violence
· practical tools to solidify the couple bond after session
This Webinar comes with step by step guide to Imagery Re-scripting for couples and a handout to use with couples.
