"When you master the five common relationship patterns, your ability to navigate even the most difficult therapy sessions increases ten-fold." - Terry Real

Dear Colleagues,

I am excited to invite you to a popular online training course called Grandiose Women - Shut Down Men.

As you may know, a focus in my therapy practice has been working with extremely difficult situations in couples/relationship therapy. When I asked you and my community what they wanted more of you shared five key issues that come up time and time again in sessions. These issues matched my own experience.

The five common patterns include the following:
     1. Grandiose Women
     2. Shut Down Men
     3. Love Avoidance
     4. Infidelity, and
     5. Our Clients’ Relationship to Themselves

As a therapist there are specific tools and techniques for mastering working with these patterns. When you have a solid command of them you can move dramatically faster toward positive outcomes.

Join me for this special intensive course where we will finally get to discuss how to work with grandiose women using the principles of Relational Life Therapy.

P.S. I have also added a few bonuses including another recorded training so you get two for the price of one.

Practical Techniques For Troublesome Issues 
- The Ultimate Therapy Toolbox 
The following are two common scenarios that as
a relationship therapist you will encounter on a regular basis
Scenario 1:
The woman drags the man to therapy and takes charge of the meeting. As she talks, the man remains silent, drifting off into space. And when he does talk the woman jumps in to cut him off or with anger.
Scenario 2:
In a private session either the man or woman ‘confides’ in you that they have had an infidelity. Now you have them both back in session and you have information of which the other partner is unaware. How can you maintain the confidence of one of your clients without betraying the other and vice versa.

 In this five-session training we are going to do a deep dive into some of the more difficult but common situations in the therapy room.
The focus is on the therapist’s own toolbox - specific direction, guidance and advice about techniques such as:

• How To Organize A First Session
• How To Determine What’s Really Going On
• Getting To The Heart of Things
• Quickly Loving Confrontation
• Empowering Our Clients
• Using Family of Origin Material
• How To Download Skills
• Dealing with Resistance
• Amplifying Progress
• How To Control And Direct
• The Session  Use of Rituals
• Exploring Sex – all in relationship to the five therapeutic challenges.
