Overcoming Divorce One Marriage at a Time: A Primer on Relational Life Therapy

Workshop, Continuing Education, Social Work CE, In-Person Workshop


With Eric Kispert, LCSW, LCADC

6 CEs

Created by the renowned marital therapist and best-selling author Terry Real, Relational Life Therapy is designed to go right to the core of marital conflict and quickly make positive, lasting change. During this workshop, therapists will receive a comprehensive overview of the model and of the elements that distinguish it from other therapies. In addition, attention will be given to the societal shift away from the traditional patriarchal marriage to one rooted in respect and collaboration. During a discussion on RLT skills, the opportunity will be interwoven for individuals to explore their own primary relationship. Ultimately, participants will leave this training with tangible skills they can begin using in their next couple’s session.

Learning Objectives:

  • Acquire a thorough understanding of the RLT model
  • Utilize the Relational Grid™ as a road map for change
  • Identify and optimize leverage to shift the relational dance
  • Learn five major RLT skills
  • Increase awareness of professional edges

New York State Office of the Professions (NYSED) regulations require that participants must be present for the entire approved educational activity in order to receive a certificate for continuing education credits. There is no accommodation in the State regulations for late arrival, late return from lunch or breaks, or early departure. According to NYSED, in order to award social work CEUs; “When you offer a multi-day or multi-part course/educational activity, the learner must complete all parts in order to earn the certificate for contact hours, in the same way that a student must complete a semester-long course to receive college credit. You may not award partial credit for a program, even a one-day program, if the learner does not complete all requirements at that time.”
