ANGRY COUPLE (The): Conflict Focused Treatment with Dr. Susan Heitler Ph.D

This program dramatically recreates key moments in the six-month course of therapy with Judith and Richard, a distressed couple whose marriage is threatened by a cycle of explosive anger and silent withdrawal. Dr. Heitler quickly reins in their anger, cuts through the impasses that have prolonged their conflict, and uncovers the core issues that have blocked intimacy from flourishing.

Watch Dr. Heitler in action, and you'll learn how to:
* Gain control in the first session, and keep subsequent sessions safe
* Defuse anger in the therapy office, without taking sides
* Teach techniques for preventing anger escalations at home
* Convert inflammatory interactions to cooperative dialogue
* Help couples develop positive communication skills, so core issues are addressed and resolved.

THE ANGRY COUPLE offers a solid framework for students, fresh perspectives for seasoned therapists, and engaging learning for couples looking to enhance their relationship.
