This training teaches therapists how to: (1) access and utilize the Eye-Brain Connection through the visual system which connects to the
emotional/sensory parts of the brain; (2) apply OEI techniques to help people
better regulate their emotions; (3) facilitate the brain’s ability to integrate
disparate aspects of experience; (4) strengthen the working alliance; (5)
increase self-refl ection and curiosity; (6) reduce the intensity of trauma,
urges to self-harm, and compulsive, addictive behaviors.

About the workshop: 

This presentation is highly recommended for clinicians who see couples or who are interested in doing so. An innovative method—called three-dimensional communicationTM—will be set forth.  Learning this way of working with couples empowers them to build (or rebuild) trust and intimacy. The approach will enable you to bring direction and momentum to your treatment of couples. At the same time, it will equip your clients to integrate skills needed to track and improve their connection.

Attendees will have a blueprint for helping their clients create emotional safety. What emotional safety entails—from a neurological, inter-subjective, relational and systemic perspective—will be explored and illustrated. Case examples, visual aids, useful metaphors and reframes as well as role-play will help illustrate major points and enliven the day. Attendees are encouraged to bring questions about clinical issues relating to couples work. Time will be set aside for a questions. comments and discussion.
