Publisher's Summary

Expand and enhance your skills as a therapist with the guidance of an internationally respected clinician

Couple therapy combines the intense work of one-on-one sessions with the need for close mediation skills - which is why the practice can be twice as difficult and emotionally draining. This is why Stan Tatkin put together What Every Therapist Ought to Know - a comprehensive guide to the psychobiological approach to couple therapy.

Over the course of eight in-depth sessions, Tatkin will lead you in an exploration of the theory and clinical tools you need to work effectively with couples who are seeking more intimate, connected, and fulfilling relationships. Through both theoretical and experiential-based learning approaches, Stan will provide a foundational training in each of the primary attachment styles, as well as how knowledge of our own and our partners' attachment histories is essential for a healthy communication.

What Every Therapist Ought to Know will teach you:

  • Anchors, Islands, and Waves: different attachment styles and how they affect relational thinking
  • Specific interview techniques to soothe clients’ activation, encourage closer engagement, and elicit deeper insights
  • How to guide couples out of disordered communication and into secure functioning
  • Why monitoring and teaching arousal regulation during sessions yields future benefits
  • How to refocus clients after disruptions in the process
  • Why the psychobiological approach to therapy requires you to acknowledge when you’re wrong and investigate deeply how to change course
  • How to self-inquire as a therapist and avoid jumping to premature conclusions
  • The most common pitfalls in the couple therapy process and how to sidestep them

“Obviously, this is a career that is very different than most,” says Tatkin. “This process can be painful at times, but the struggle is an integral part of this very complex set of theories. It takes time and patience. If you do it a lot, you will eventually feel very comfortable in your practice."

Extremely helpful and practical

This feels like mentorship in a book.
Recommend to Counsellors - even if you are not a couples Counsellor, I think you should have an awareness of what a couples Counsellor might do.
Highly Recommend for someone like me who is not a practitioner - but someone with an interest in psych personally - and as research for fiction writing.
