The couple relationship is a fascinating and complex subject which we encounter daily, both in our personal lives and with patients in the therapy room. During the workshop, we will engage with different aspects of ourselves, as partners and therapists. The focus will be on identifying and understanding our fears – as individuals and as part of a couple - observing our coping patterns, those of our partners and our patients, and the ability to progress from fear to love.


There will be two parts:



  • our own encounter with the issue of couple relationships in our private lives; the emotional and psychological burdens that are integral to a couple’s journey; dialogue and engagement with this theme as an opportunity for personal and relationship development;


  • working with the couple-relationship in the therapy room, and receiving tools for individual and couple therapy according to the biodynamic body psychotherapy approach.



The course features lectures on themes connected to the couple-relationship, such as: different communication styles; crises and tensions and coping methods; sexuality, money, and control struggles; what is a satisfying relationship?;  dilemmas and conflicts in individual and couple therapy, including the therapist’s role in the tripartite encounter.


We will also discuss, share, and bring up cases from our therapy work, and we will practice in pairs and threes in both parts of the course. This will include individual work on the main fears that motivate and affect us, both as partners and as therapists.​


A one-day workshop for therapists on the theme of relationships – at the personal level, and in the therapeutic setting.
