Workshops and Seminars

Workshop and Seminar Topics: If you have an interest in attending any of these workshops or seminars, please contact us.

Clinical and Practical Areas

  • Responding vs Reacting (Staying in Neutral)
  • Shadow Boxing: Reacting to what we believe about the other, not what’s necessarily true
  • We (unwittingly) teach people how to treat us; and you can change that
  • Self-Confidence requires Self-Efficacy; it doesn’t occur on its own
  • There’s no such thing as Laziness; it’s mostly a function of anxiety
  • Changing Dysfunctional Thinking
  • Equalizing Imbalances -The Economics of a Relationship and how to change them (in work and life)
  • The Substance Abusing Family Member: A gentler approach eliciting positive change via reinforcement and engagement vs the more volatile ‘Interventions’
  • The Restrictive/Binge Eating Cycle and Self-Efficacy
  • Communicating Negative Information; it can motivate rather than deflate
  • You Have to Make Movement To ‘Move’
  • To manage anxiety, learn to “Make it Moot”
  • Helping families through divorce: the differing needs of the children separate from the needs of the partners
  • If you want to communicate, change the unwitting messages
  • Setting Limits: Saying No, Saying Yes
  • Self-efficacy vs. self esteem; Focusing on the former will make the latter happen 

Interpersonal Relationships

  • The Chase isn’t what you think it is
  • Falling out of love is a myth – and can change
  • “Hogging the Wanting”
  • “We have no chemistry” is rarely the reason a relationship isn’t working
  • When a relationship becomes less sexual, take more risk
  • When someone says, “All I care about is making you happy” – Run!
  • The role of porn
  • If attraction and sex are underwhelming, that can change
  • People have affairs because they’re afraid they’re losing their partners – not because they no longer love them
  • Why annoyance is so present in relationships
  • Don’t make your partner do your reassuring; Do your own self-inquiry
  • Intimacy requires being able to have “separateness”
