Program Description:

The literature well-documents common couple issues such as communication differences, infidelity, financial woes, or incongruent parenting styles. In their search for answers, partners grapple with questions like “Why can’t they change if they love me?” or “Why won’t they accept me as I am?” Not only do couples get caught in the trap of trying to find explanations for their ongoing conflict, but their attempt to cope with or solve the problem becomes a problem itself. With that in mind, couple therapists may feel perplexed with conceptualizing the couple’s distress and identifying what to focus on first in treatment. Without a good understanding of the couple’s core issues, the process and outcome of treatment is at stake (Boisvert, M., Wright, J., Tremblay, N., & McDuff, P., 2011).
Integrative Behavioral Couple Therapy (IBCT), a 3rd wave couples therapy framework, not only addresses the specific relational concerns but also how the couple approaches the issues (Christensen, Doss, & Jacobson, 2020). This evidence-based treatment uniquely works toward the goals of both acceptance and change.  This workshop will offer a general overview of key differences and similarities between IBCT and other evidence-based couple therapies. Additionally, an outline of IBCT’s assessment, feedback, intervention, and termination phases will be covered. Case examples will be used to demonstrate clinical intervention strategies.

Goals and Objectives:

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

  1. Recognize key similarities and differences between IBCT and other couple’s therapy treatment approaches.
  2. Evaluate the couple’s appropriateness for IBCT.
  3. Describe 3 IBCT strategies for promoting acceptance and change.
