Presenter: Mona Fishbane, Ph.D
 
3.5 CE credits for Psychologists
Instructional Level: appropriate for all levels
 

Couples in distress often get caught up in cycles of mutual blame and emotional reactivity. This workshop explores psychodynamic, interpersonal, intergenerational, cultural, and neurobiological factors fueling these cycles. Dr. Fishbane will present an integrative approach to transforming couple impasses, informed by interpersonal neurobiology and relationship research. The focus is on helping couples shift from disempowered, blaming stances to positions of relational empowerment, connection, and respect. Dr. Fishbane’s presentation builds on her book, Loving with the Brain in Mind: Neurobiology & Couple Therapy, part of the Norton Series on Interpersonal Neurobiology.
