No cases involve more momentous consequences than those involving couples on the brink of divorce, especially when children are involved. No matter how neutral we try to be, our beliefs, judgments, and behavior in the therapy room can have enormous repercussions on whether clients decide to go all-in for saving their marriage or dissolve it. What's our responsibility and what role should our own values and judgments play in the process? Is therapeutic neutrality really possible when marriages are on the line? Should it be?

To help you answer these questions, we're launching an all-new online video course — The Dilemmas of Divorce: New Approaches for Helping Couples on the Brink. It features William Doherty, Terry Real, Tammy Nelson, Michele Weiner-Davis, Patricia Papernow, and Elana Katz — leading innovators in the field of couples therapy who will share new approaches they've developed specifically for couples considering divorce.

You'll learn how to determine the best interests of your clients and their entire families and get the practical guidance you need to start using these new approaches with couples considering divorce in your own practice.

  • Insight Phase - Help divorcing couples review the deeper meaning of their marriage, determine what they've learned, find ways to mourn their loss, and express regrets and appreciation to each other
