Description

Treating Trauma

Dr. Julie Gottman describes the impact of PTSD on committed relationships using real examples of trauma caused by early abandonment, childhood abuse, and military combat. She demonstrates a therapeutic approach that interweaves individual PTSD treatment with Gottman Method Couples Therapy. Watch Paul and Shantel, the couple featured in our Level 1 Clinical Training and Therapy Sessions: Live videos, as they return to therapy with the Gottmans eight years later. These new films demonstrate powerful couples interventions for PTSD and trauma.

Treating Affairs

Dr. John Gottman unfolds the science behind trust and betrayal and provides the tools needed to create trust and commitment in love relationships. The Gottmans describe their impactful “Atone, Attune, and Attach” model for treating affairs. This model provides clinicians with an unbiased approach that compassionately serves both partners as they struggle to rebuild a collapsed marriage. See brand new films of the Gottmans in their clinical office engaging in intensive therapy with a military couple, a case in which the husband had an affair and suffered from PTSD following his 12 back-to-back deployments overseas. Learn the important variations in assessment and intervention techniques that empower couples to not only rebuild their relationship, but also create immunity from future betrayals.

Learning Objectives

At the completion of this training, you will be able to:

  1. Compare and contrast the psychometric soundness of assessment instruments used to diagnose PTSD, including tools for structured interviews, self-report scales, and psycho-physiological assessment methods.

  3. Evaluate the effectiveness of popular individual therapies for treating PTSD.

  4. Compare and contrast research studies on couples therapy methods for treating PTSD.

  5. Defend the practice of conducting conjoint therapy to address PTSD during couples therapy by referencing the relevant research findings on the impact of PTSD on relationships, as well as the relationship outcomes associated with individual PTSD treatment.

  6. Implement clinical strategies that help “surface” trauma when working with a couple with PTSD.

  7. Select clinical interventions that help “explore” trauma at a deeper level once it has surfaced.

  8. Facilitate movement from the individual to the dyad when processing a trauma.

  14. Apply the Gottman Method Couples Therapy Assessment process with couples who have experienced an affair.

  15. Incorporate appropriate additional details when conducting an Assessment feedback session for treating affairs.

  16. Facilitate the Atonement phase of Gottman Method Couples Therapy for affairs.

  17. Defend the practice of allowing the hurt partner to express anger, insecurity, resentment, fear and feelings of rejection, rather than down-regulating their expression of emotion.
