Discernment Counseling for Couples on the Brink of Divorce

Discernment Counseling for Couples on the Brink of Divorce

Institute for Couple and Family Enhancement 

Instructor: Becky R. Davenport, Ph.D., LMFT-S, ICFE Director

November 1, 2019 9am-4pm

6 CEUs

Up to 30% of couples who present for therapy would fall into the category of a "mixed agenda" couple- meaning one spouse is not fully committed to or hopeful about couples therapy. Most traditional couples therapy models have not really given us a means of successfully engaging those couples into effective couples therapy, much less down the path of healthy divorce. Discernment counseling, developed from over a decade of research and clinical work with these couples, fills the gap for couples therapists. This training in discernment counseling is intended to prepare you for effectively guiding mixed agenda couples through a short term (1-5 sessions) intentional decision making process regarding the future of their relationship, and then transition with them as they continue forward into either a full commitment to couples therapy or ending the relationship with as much dignity and intentionality as possible. Dr. Davenport will take you through the Discernment Counseling protocol from beginning to end.  

Limited enrollment for personal attention. Cost- $125 for training and 6 CEUs; $100 for LPC-Intern, LMFT-Associates and graduate students.

One hour break for lunch on your own at 12:00pm.
