Start Session

It Ain't Over Till It's Over: Marital Reconciliation in the Divorce Process - Details:

The conventional wisdom in therapy is that once a couple has begun legal divorce proceedings, there's no more point in doing marital therapy--just divorce counseling and mediation. But new research in Minnesota has shown that couples express lots of ambivalence and longing for reconciliation even while on their way to divorce court, although therapists don't seem to be paying attention. In this workshop, we'll examine our own values, attitudes, and ambivalence about encouraging couples at this late date to try again. You'll learn how to hold the hope for demoralized couples, use rapid interventions to resuscitate dying relationships, and mobilize community resources to help, because therapy alone isn't enough. Warning: this work isn't for the timid!
