...And It`s All Your Fault!
Transforming Troubled Relationships into Loving Ones
David Burns, M.D.
13 CE/CME Hours
We all find ourselves at odds with family members, friends, and colleagues from time to time. Why is it sometimes so hard to get close to the people we care about? And why do so many of our clients persistently fight and complain about friends or family members, even when we provide them with outstanding tools to overcome those conflicts?
Dr. Burns argues that effective relationship therapy cannot simply involve a series of techniques designed to enhance intimacy and communication, no matter how sensible or helpful those techniques might seem to be. That’s because darker and more devious motives compete with our desires for loving, joyous relationships. The failure to deal with those motives is the most common cause of therapeutic failure. In the workshop, Dr. Burns will illustrate powerful TEAM-CBT techniques for working with individuals as well as couples with troubled relationships. He will give you the opportunity to work on a conflict you’ve experienced with a friend, family member, colleague or patient so that you can gain a personal perspective as well as a deeper clinical understanding of these new techniques. Teaching methods will include didactic presentations, Q&A, practice exercises, and live demonstrations.
