Revolutionize Your Work with Couples by Michelle Wangler
- A roadmap for how to select the best possible interventions for different types of couples

- Highly effective, practical exercise that leads many couples to say, “We haven’t felt this connected in years!”
Are you ready to take your work with couples to a whole new level? Instead of feeling stuck and bewildered, imagine feeling grounded and structured. Inadequacy is replaced with confidence, knowing you have a roadmap to keep your couples on course. New couples begin to say, “our previous therapists just let us muddle along. Thank you for finally helping us!”
Join us to learn cutting-edge tools to evolve and deepen your work with couples. This workshop offers practical interventions, step-by-step, that are designed to create the results couples want. You will learn how to take charge with the endlessly blaming couples, gain traction with the conflict avoidant couples, and guide entrenched couples out of destructive communication patterns. You will confront defenses in a way that is illuminating for everyone in the room. You’ll also sharpen your skills with a powerful communication exercise that serves as an assessment and intervention tool, as well as fostering teamwork and collaboration.
When you understand the dynamics of a relationship from a developmental perspective, your work with couples is transformed. This workshop offers proven, hands-on, practical tools that you can begin using immediately with your couples. Equipped with a road map, you will feel more prepared to face obstacles that lie ahead and be able to know you are truly helping. Watch your practice grow!

More information about Medical:
Medicine is the science and practice of establishing the diagnosis, prognosis, treatment, and prevention of disease.
Medicine encompasses a variety of health care practices evolved to maintain and restore health by the prevention and treatment of illness.
Contemporary medicine applies biomedical sciences, biomedical research, genetics, and medical technology to diagnose, treat, and prevent injury and disease,
typically through pharmaceuticals or surgery, but also through therapies as diverse as psychotherapy, external splints and traction, medical devices, biologics, and ionizing radiation, amongst others.
Medicine has been around for thousands of years, during most of which it was an art (an area of skill and knowledge) frequently having connections to the religious and
philosophical beliefs of local culture. For example, a medicine man would apply herbs and say prayers for healing, or an ancient philosopher and physician would apply bloodletting according to the theories of humorism.
In recent centuries, since the advent of modern science, most medicine has become a combination of art and science (both basic and applied, under the umbrella of medical science).
While stitching technique for sutures is an art learned through practice, the knowledge of what happens at the cellular and molecular level in the tissues being stitched arises through science.
