This four day training will cover the steps and stages of working with couples from an attachment perspective.  Training will be packed with didactic as well as experiential learning opportunities.  There will be two live consultations of a trainer working with a couple (pending availability).

Who should attend: The Externship is recommended for all licensed professionals who counsel couples, including psychiatrists, psychologists, psychotherapists, pastors, family physicians, social workers, psychiatric nurses, counselors and students training in these professions.

Cancellation policy: If you wish to withdraw from the Externship, you must do so in writing. If you cancel before October 25, you will receive a full refund minus a $50 administrative fee. We are sorry that no refunds will be available for cancellations made after October 25 due to administrative and budgetary costs.
