About the Workshop
The Advanced Healing for Couples Workshop is a Level 2 (advanced) workshop that offers an opportunity to pursue deeper healing within a coupleship. As such, it’s primarily an experiential workshop. “Experiential” means the agenda includes exercises like psychodrama, “empty chair” work, and similar active ways of getting to deeper levels of understanding and healing. Small group time with other couples will comprise the majority of the workshop, rather than teaching segments.
Each couple will identify the work you choose to do. Possible topics include better communication, rebuilding trust, deepening intimacy, healthy sexuality, finances, parenting, or any other issue you want to address.
Two leaders will facilitate each small group, which normally will have four to six couples. All leaders are at least master’s level, licensed therapists with specific training in psychodrama and experiential therapy.
