Times New Roman

Therapeutic treatment, and counseling, of a married couple requires specialized models of therapy, because a couple is more than two individuals seeking treatment. A couple is a unit and an entity, and working with two persons within a relationship has different goals, intervention tools, and roles than individual counseling. In a similar manner, the laws, ethics and standards which relate to couples therapy include different parameters than those standards governing individual treatment. Whether dealing with confidentiality, with selecting a model of therapy, or billing insurance, there are factors which are unique to this specialization and which demand the attentive awareness of the therapist and counselor. This webinar course will review and discuss the relevant data so as to better assist couples therapists in the professional standard of care for this work.
