It’s hard to get a word in edgewise when couples with toxic dynamics enter treatment…
…nevermind knowing the right words to say.
Power imbalances, lack of cooperation, intense emotions, hostility, maybe even abuse.. not to mention each partner’s individual issues.
It can be hard to know where to start. But, one thing is crucial, you need to get your clients calm, engaged, and ready for change.
Two-time bestselling author Krystal Mazzola Wood has created a DBT blueprint for working with couples and individuals in toxic relationships that jump starts healthy dynamics – while making couples work easier on you!
Based around one of the most evidenced-based and time-tested treatments, Krystal’s approach to applying DBT with couples helps you to shortcut around common therapy obstacles….
Become the therapist that helps your clients take action in their relationships instead of just talking about them and help them recover instead of just maintain.
Continuing education credit information is coming soon for this live webcast.
Krystal Mazzola Wood, LMFT, is a licensed marriage and family therapist, author, and codependency expert. Krystal received her undergraduate degree in gender studies and human sexuality from the University of Arizona. She then attended the University of Oregon to pursue their couples and family therapy master’s program in 2009. It was highly important to Krystal to attend an inclusive program as this was prior to the Marriage Equality Act.
Krystal gained her expertise in codependency by working at The Meadows, a world-renowned treatment center. Here, Krystal trained under pioneering codependency expert Pia Mellody. Throughout this time, Krystal has been fascinated by the systems in which people suffer – and recover – from the beginning of her career. This systemic focus led her to create her five-step codependency recovery system, which is featured in her book, The Codependency Recovery Plan: A 5-Step Guide to Understand, Accept, and Break Free from the Codependent Cycle. To support readers further, she then wrote The Codependency Workbook: Simple Practices for Developing and Maintaining Your Independence.
Krystal’s systemic focus also led her to a four-part program for health boundaries. This program is featured in her current training at PESI, CBT, DBT & EMDR Strategies to Free Clients from Codependency, Narcissistic Abuse & Attachment Trauma.
Krystal currently treats individual and couples’ clients experiencing codependency at her practice, The Healthy Relationship Foundation. She is currently working on her third book due late 2022, Self-Love Made Possible: The 5-Step Guide to Stop Being Your Own Worst Enemy and Become Your Own Best Friend. She also contributes weekly to her blog for empowering dating advice, Confidently Authentic.
