Gain a better understanding of how to move couples forward when helping them face difficult truths in their lives.It's not easy when a couple enters treatment unsure about whether to dissolve a marriage or try to save it---especially when each partner leans in a different direction. These 'mixed agenda' couples present challenges for even the most skilled couples therapist, particularly since successful couples therapy usually depends on both partners being at least nominally invested in working on the relationship. This topic will demonstrate a new approach called Discernment Counseling that helps partners develop clarity and confidence about whether to divorce or work on their relationship in therapy, while avoiding the pitfall of trying to start couples therapy in the face of ambivalence about the future of the marriage and about the value of therapy for the marriage.
