Trauma can be overwhelmingly difficult to deal with alone. And further, it ultimately affects more than just the person who initially suffered the trauma.
It’s very common for it to affect an intimate relationship, as well as the whole family. Thus, couples therapy can be an effective tool.
Watch this video as Dr. Sue Johnson talks about how to use couples-based therapy and the science of love to aid in healing trauma.
In this week’s webinar, I’ll be interviewing Dr. Johnson about how trauma affects intimate relationships and how we can use relationships to heal trauma.
Here’s a preview of what we’ll discuss:
- How to use couples therapy to strengthen attachments bonds in the face of trauma
- Unique problems (and opportunities) in couples therapy with trauma survivors and their partners
- Special considerations for first responder or military families
- How to use emotionally focused couples therapy for treating trauma
