The Heart of Loving: A New Model of Couples Therapy

May 31, 2013 8:45 am -
May 31, 2013 4:30 pm

Event Description

Master Series in Clinical Practice

Jointly sponsored by The Continuing Education Program at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, a Major Teaching Hospital of Harvard Medical School; Boston Psychoanalytic Society and Institute; and the Massachusetts School of Professional Psychology.

The Master Series affords the chance to spend a complete day with leaders in our field to consider the unique perspective each speaker brings to the challenging dilemmas in both theory and practice. We hope that you will consider joining us for the entire series at a reduced tuition or choose the programs most relevant to your own practice.


David Treadway, PhD, instructor

Couples often struggle with too many issues and too little time. David Treadway’s model of organizing couples therapy helps the clients design their own treatment plan. This workshop will show how couples can choose whether to work on making changes in the here and now, focus on healing from the wounds of their past or visit the dynamics of their family of origin. Once couples chose whether to focus on the present or the past, this model then has a variety of additional choices for a couple to explore. Couples might decide to work on communications or behavior changes, problem solving or sexual intimacy. Dr. Treadway and the couple then plan a number of sessions of varying duration and frequency to work together followed by an assessment and potentially a new treatment focus. Dr. Treadway will demonstrate with video, role play, and discussion how this model helps couples invest in their own treatment, learn how to collaborate respectfully and tolerate living with unresolved issues while working on changing one aspect of their relationship at a time. In addition to demonstrating this collaborative model of organizing couples treatment, he will also present a wide range of therapeutic strategies, protocols and interventions for many typical couples’ issues including communication, conflict, sexuality, parenting, finances and family of origin.

Upon completion of the program, the student will be able to:

  • Explain how to organize couples therapy to help the clients design their own treatment plan
  • Describe how couples choose whether to work on making changes in the here and now, focus on healing from the wounds of their past or visit the dynamics of their family of origin
  • Demonstrate how this model helps couples invest in their own treatment, learn how to collaborate respectfully and tolerate living with unresolved issues while working on changing one aspect of their relationship at a time
