Even couples presenting with what, on the surface, appear to be simpler couple problems bring with them the emotion schemes that are the tread-marks of their childhood and relationship histories with current partners and others. Practitioners see couples struggling with these difficult interactions as well as experiencing themselves in-session. These are transferences – the past enacted in the present. An awareness of these historic patterns and how to work with these histories, or manage them if they are challenging the couple process, helps deepen, enrich and enlighten the couple processes in the therapy room.

This workshop aims to help therapists to identify the transferences and projections that are operating in couple work, and unpack the emotion schemes inside emotional signatures that influence these patterns of relating that emerge in the couple work. This workshop will also include ideas for revealing the transference templates as well as some of the interventions for working with them in longer term couple work.
