The workshop A Relational Psychoanalytic Approach to Couples Therapy will be presented Friday, November 22, at Menninger by Philip Ringstrom, PhD, PsyD, a senior training analyst from the Institute of Contemporary Psychoanalysis in Los Angeles, who will discuss his model for working with couples.
Treatment goals include the actualization of self-experience in an intimate relationship, the capacity for mutual recognition and the relationship having a mind of its own. Dr. Ringstrom will describe the six steps in which these themes are achieved.
