Teaching and supervision is provided by senior staff. All our trainings and supervisions are delivered by highly experienced staff at Tavistock Relationships.
This stimulating course looks into some of the most fascinating aspects of couple relationships, including sex and sexuality, hate, aggression, and the myriad of unconscious processes such as unconscious phantasy and beliefs. This is a theory based course where the learning is participative. Course leaders and attendees will draw on their own clinical material to develop understanding of psychoanalytic concepts as they relate to the adult couple relationship.
What the course covers:
The course is for qualified therapists and other workers working with individuals (adult and child) and families who want to explore and understand the couple relationship and its impact on their particular client base. The course is also for qualified therapists interested in working with couples and who want to understand more before undertaking further clinical training.
