  • Overview

    In this online workshop, Anne Power will draw on her research, in which she interviewed 18 contented couples in the US and the UK, and which formed the basis of her new book, Contented Couples: Magic, Logic or Luck?

    As clinicians we might be familiar with thinking about what has gone wrong in the couple relationship, or what might never have been established in the first place, but we are perhaps less familiar with thinking about what makes couples successful.

    Anne will describe how she arrived at the focus of her research and why it was important to her to include couples in arranged marriages and self-arranged relationships, as well as those who met through romance.

    She will consider the following questions: what are partners doing right that makes a long-term relationship work?; when couples have been to therapy earlier in their relationship, how do the benefits show up later?; when couples have got through stormy times without therapy, how is this possible?; if a good enough relationship is inherently therapeutic, how can we understand what constitutes good enough?; do stories of happy couples have a message for single clients?

    Anne will give a presentation, which will be followed by a discussion in the group.
