Do these clients sound familiar? Terry Real used RLT to get past his client’s feelings of rage, abandonment and belittlement — and he’ll show you the steps to do the same in this intensive video course.

  • Trish and Jay

After years of therapy, Trish has learned that her rage has affected her relationship with her husband and their children. But Trish has never understood how her rough past, which includes family physical and sexual abuse, could be the reason behind her rage. Through analysis and utilizing individual trauma work, Dr. Terry Real will go deep with Trish to help her “solve the puzzle” as to why her rage continues, and help her re-build relational skills to improve her tremulous relationship with Jay and their children.

  • Liz and Mike

Neglected as a child by her parents and a recovering sex addict, Liz has always struggled with her rage, especially towards her husband Mike. She often feels abandoned by Mike, which then progresses into rage. Utilizing inner child work, Dr. Terry Real reveals that her love addiction and past abandonment is what fuels the rage she gives to Mike. Watch intensely as Terry teaches Liz and Mike the next steps to getting past the rage and living as a happy family unit again.

  • Jerome and Cindy

Born and raised in Jamaica, Jerome lived in what one could call a “warzone”. Jerome suffered through physical child abuse and the deaths of both his father and brother, and later served as a marine in Afghanistan twice. You will come to find that because of Jerome’s dark past, his relationship to his wife, Cindy, has greatly suffered, to the point where divorce is often brought up. Watch as Terry unveils Jerome’s past trauma history and how he addresses Jerome’s current rage towards his wife. Through deep trauma work, Dr. Terry Real will help this couple learn how to deal with the past to better the present.

  • Tom and Ann

After many years of individual therapy, Tom and Ann seem to still struggle with their relationship, especially when it comes to parenting. Tom often feels that Ann treats him as another child, while Ann believes Tom is very harsh with their son. Learn as Terry exposes the reality of Tom’s harshness towards his son and see how Terry stresses the importance of working together to parent their children.

  • Deborah and Alex

Taught by her mother at a very young age to never trust men, Deborah has been conflicted with feeling secure in her relationship with Alex. She often fears the day Alex will be unfaithful to her and gets easily triggered if Alex has any female interaction. Discover how Terry reveals that Deborah experienced psychological incest from her mother and how today, Deborah carries her mother’s burdens into her relationship with Alex. Find out how Terry helps Deborah unload her mother’s burdens to create a secure relationship with Alex and to be able to trust men again.

A family therapist and teacher for more than 25 years, Terry is the best-selling author of I Don’t Want to Talk About It: Overcoming the Secret Legacy of Male Depression (Scribner), the straight-talking How Can I Get Through to You? Reconnecting Men and Women (Scribner), and most recently The New Rules of Marriage: What You Need to Make Love Work (Random House). Terry knows how to lead couples on a step-by-step journey to greater intimacy — and greater personal fulfillment.

A senior faculty member of the Family Institute of Cambridge in Massachusetts and a retired Clinical Fellow of the Meadows Institute in Arizona, Terry has worked with thousands of individuals, couples, and fellow therapists. Through his books, the Institute, and workshops around the country, Terry helps women and men, parents and non-parents, to help them create the connection they desire in their relationships.

Terry’s work, with its rigorous commonsense approach, speaks to both men and women. His ideas on men’s issues and on couple’s therapy have been celebrated in venues from the “Good Morning America”, “The Today Show” and “20/20”, to “Oprah” and The New York Times.

A proponent of “full-throttle marriage,” as described in The New Rules of Marriage, Terry has been called “the most innovative voice in thinking about and treating men and their relationships in the world today.”

The New York Times Book Review described Terry’s work as: “A critical contribution to feminist psychology (that) brings the Men’s movement a significant step forward.” Robert Bly hailed it as “moving onto new ground in both story and song. Exhilarating in its honesty.”
