Description

Fighting couples come to you for a quick fix. Are you ready to turn those frustrations into positive change?

Therapy is usually a couple’s choice after years of marital conflict, and their expectations can turn sessions into a challenge, leaving you and your clients feeling like the whole process is a failure.

Put yourself on the path to success when you enroll in Couples Therapy Jump-Start: Connecting Clinical Strategies with Neuroscience to Re-Wire & Re-Fire Love. You’ll gain a unique skillset to turn frustrations into positive change, help clients calm themselves, and foster listening without reacting – using techniques backed by neuroscience to help rewire the client’s brains.

Solutions take time, but when you have the right tools you can start a couple’s therapy session on the right path from day one.
