Couples Body Psychotherapy

A Course for psychotherapists from the UK and Europe

With Gabriel Shiraz

Studies will be held at Emerson College, a charming rural location just an

hour from London. Forest Row, East Sussex, UK  

September 2020, December 2020, March 2021

 

This course is designed for experienced psychotherapists who want to broaden their field of expertise on individual and professional levels. It equips therapists to work with couples, using therapeutic tools from the world of Body-Psychotherapy, such as awareness techniques, therapeutic discourse, movement, touch, breathing and psychodrama. The course is held at Emerson College, a charming setting surrounded by nature, ideal for in-depth learning.

The learning process will provide the therapist with tools for working with couples, as well as a powerful personal process. On our journey of experiential and theoretical learning, we will learn about the complexity of couples therapy, in which four entities are present in the therapy room: each of the two partners, their relationship and the therapist., as well as the relational ties between everyone.

The studies will be held over three long weekends:

10-13 September 2020, 3-6- December 2020, 3-6 March 2021

Hours: Thursday 13.00-21.00, Friday 09.00-17.00

Saturday – day off and time for individual and couples practice, Sunday 09.00-17.00

          10-13 September 2020 - The first meeting; the room in couples therapy. Various needs and desires, conflicts, and means of mediation. Working with personal and couple narratives. The broadening process of the couples therapist to encompass each partner and the relationship itself.

          3-6 December 2020 - Tensions, stress, situations of crisis and routine in a couple’s relationship. Working with individual and couple patterns and narratives. The Primary Couple Personality and Couple Armour. Unique mind-body techniques for working with couples in conditions of distrust and crisis.

          3-6 March 2021 - Therapeutic work with couples on questions of intimacy and sexuality. Dealing with explosive issues such as struggles for control, money, aggression and others. Spirituality and beliefs in a relationship and their impact on the cople. The therapeutic space, and processes of understanding, closure and ending the therapy; recommendations for the future.

 

Body Psychotherapy is a mind-body-energy therapy method. Its approach to the couple and the family is holistic. It explores the different layers within us: thought and behaviour patterns, body structure and body image, our breathing, movement, and posture, physical and emotional expression, resonance within the couple and the family, mind-body relationships, psychosomatic and sexual problems, belief systems, personal and couple potential.

Each session is taught and practiced individually, in pairs, and in groups. The course draws on unique ways of working with couples from the world of body psychotherapy – through therapeutic discourse, movement, mind and body awareness, modelling from the world of Virginia Satir, and more. Through a process of personal learning and development, we will observe and explore different situations in couples therapy. Throughout the course, we will broaden our therapeutic capacities - from working with individuals, to working with couples - presenting case studies from therapy and using discussions and training. Once the course ends, we will progress to a group support and supervision structure and training, using Skype and other various media.
