You have one of the most challenging jobs in the field of therapy.
Couples therapists today must not only guide clients to better emotional and sexual connections in the face of deep-rooted problems such as infidelity, trauma, shame, and addictions, but they must also adapt to rapidly changing cultural norms that may even make them personally uncomfortable. 

Psychotherapist and New York Times bestselling author, Esther Perel, thrives on challenges like these. Her clinical creativity and ability to establish a safe and energizing therapeutic environment where partners can talk about anything has become an inspiration to therapists around the world. As such, she’s become not only something of a couples therapy rock star, but also a crossover phenom featured in publications like The New York Times, Vogue, The Economist and The Atlantic—and she's been praised as “a master at what she does” by The New Yorker. Her recent podcast series, Where Should We Begin?, set download records, reaching the top of the iTunes charts. Her bestselling books, Mating in Captivity and The State of Affairs, have been translated into dozens of languages, and her unique approach is transforming the field.

Now in this comprehensive Master Class, you have the chance to experience Esther Perel in action. You'll get an inside understanding of her transformative approach as she shares— therapist to therapist —the process underlying her clinical choices as she works with three couples dealing with infidelity, seeming sexual incompatibility, and the impact of childhood trauma. Sit in on an in-depth conversation about each session, with thought-provoking questions from Networker Editor, Rich Simon, that will get to the heart of her techniques, so you can learn how to implement them into your approach.

Best of all, you'll complete this online course with concrete, practical tools that you can begin using with your own clients right away to help them find hope and joy in their relationships.

This is your chance to bring new creativity and clarity to your couples work, and enhance your effectiveness with even your most challenging cases.

Introduction to Esther Perel’s Couples Therapy Approach
In the Introductory Session of this Master Class, Esther offers her latest insight into the changing narratives of couples today. She explores the cultural forces that have changed marriage in our society, and explains how therapists can address the new consumer mindset most couples bring into therapy, prioritizing individual happiness and self-fulfillment above other relationship concerns.
Module 1
Speak to Me in French
In this session, meet a husband and wife who have been married for 16 years and believe that they are sexually incompatible. Discover how Esther’s unique approach helps them leave the session understanding their individual histories, including past abuse and trauma. Learn creative strategies to help couples call each other back to a new place of sexual and emotional intimacy.
Module 1
The Perfect Marriage
The couple in this session have been happily married for 40 years. He’s been an attentive father and a loving husband. They’ve had a vibrant sex life, good marriage, and a fulfilling family life—until the wife discovered her husband had been compulsively unfaithful with one-night stands and pay-for-play sex throughout their entire marriage. She's chosen to remain in the marriage but is hurt, angry, confused and shamed by friends and her children for staying. Experience how Esther quickly identifies the real pain points, helping the couple regain trust. Learn strategies that will enhance your own ability to help your clients heal from infidelity.
Module 1
Trauma and the Roots of Infidelity
Seeking Esther's guidance on how to create a space of safety for physical intimacy, the couple in this session are gay men who have been together for 14 years, but were just recently married. One of the partners has a history of PTSD and substance abuse, and it's recently been discovered that he's had multiple affairs. Experience how Esther helps the couple to better understand the trauma and its triggers, and how she creatively guides the couple towards a fuller, more open relationship.
