Back from Las Vegas and ready to roll for 2020.

Resource Therapy has a lot to offer therapists. A perfect addition to your therapy skillset and toolbox. Ready to train in the USA - 2020.

Hi guys,  have been over to the USA scouting possible locations for bringing Resource Therapy to America.

Welcome to the city that never sleeps - Las Vegas. Could it be our first stop for Resource Therapy Training?
Welcome to the city that never sleeps – Las Vegas. Could it be our first stop for Resource Therapy Training?

I loved my visit. Las Vegas was a hoot and so hot!! Thank you to the America people too. Everyone was so kind, polite and friendly.

Attending a Michele Weiner-Davis workshop – a couple therapy legend and new friend. Michele is super talented at bringing out the best state to progress marriages on the brink. So exciting to learn her Solution Oriented model, a further development of brief Solution focused therapy. I did training back in the day with Brian Cade and bought his book he wrote with Bill O’Hanlon – A Brief guide to Brief Therapy.

As many of you know Chris and I run Marriage Works and if you want more info and  For Michele’s books please click this link.

So we are thinking of different USA locations – love to hear your recommendations please. It’s looking like 2020 to return in 2021. Most likely we will do the Clinical training in two five day units.

Loved seeing these native Big horn Sheep in Boulder City, Nevada USA. Perhaps this could be the Resource Therapy Institutes next training destination? Say 2020?

How glorious to see wildlife in the wild. Truly one of my favorite things to do. Pretty pleased it wasn’t a bear or a rattlesnake though!

Love to hear your thoughts and comments – please spread the word. So happy to chat to folks who wish to know more about Resource Therapy and how it will benefit your client work. It’s a brief parts therapy perfectly adaptable to your preferred therapy model – I know we get attached to our learnings and fair enough.

Thanks for reading. Glad the Sydney winter weather has been kind. The Mojave desert was getting up to 118 Fahrenheit, melting point for me at 47 Celsius!

Chris and I are delighted to be a part of the Bali training experience with Gordon and Anna Emmerson. We are proud to present  a One Day Special Master Class in UBUD, Bali  Monday 6th August 2018.

UPDATE – with Bali’s Mt Agung actively erupting at the time of writing December 2017, we are looking to provide this training at an alternative location around the same time of year. So please hold that thought, register your interest to get updates and if you know or could help with a venue suggestion ( preferably tropical!) then drop me a line – philipathornton@gmail.com

Thanks and so sorry but we hope to have good news on this soon xx

How to Master Couple Work using Your Resource Therapy Skills

Learn the application of Resource Therapy Protocols and Principles in Couple Counselling.

Learn in the fun and supportive of Ubud Bali  how to:

  • Use the RT protocol, as devised by Professor Gordon Emerson, for couple counselling, to assist clients with relationship issues.
  • Effectively apply RT actions in couple sessions, to facilitate relationship repair.
  • Harmoniously blend communication skills and RT actions for best client outcomes.
  • Use individual RT work with each partner, balanced with couple work, for optimal therapeutic results.

    Therapists learn how to help partnerships with Resource Therapy’s model of couple work.

    Expand your Resource Therapy potential by assisting couples in distress while applying your RT ciincial skills.

I know this can be daunting. Boy do I remember doing my RT training with Gordon Emmerson years ago and not feeling confident in applying it in couple work in my psychotherapy practice –  Marriage Works Sydney Practice. Yes, you read correctly. Here I was a trained couple therapist with a postgraduate diploma in Couple Therapy (and it cost me thousands!).

Training that is cost effective.

Once I had lots of practice with RT, I then applied it to my couple work using Gordon’s protocol. I found I was having more success with the couples consulting me. It’s wonderful in private practice for keeping a steady stream of clients and easily applicable to any health care setting. Using RT with twosomes means you can double the therapeutic outcome. And isn’t that why we signed up for the helping profession?

Working with many partnerships over the years, we have identified common issues encountered in using this model with couples.

No problem using RT in couple therapy.

This means we can offer you the benefit of our field proven know-how with practical methods to overcome these obstacles effectively.

 

 

Naturally you have completed the 10-day Clinical training, which has given you the basis to quickly progress to couple work. So come join us in Ubud, Chris and I would love to meet you.

soap-bubble-824591_640
You can see the world in anything.

We will bring couple work alive with client case material with our experience (50 plus years between Chris and I) in what works and what doesn’t. As you know RT works with most clients presenting issues.

You do not need any couple therapy training – just a willingness to multiply your capacity for therapy.

This cutting edge workshop run by the Resource Therapy Institute of Australia will be presented by Chris Paulin (Consultant Psychologist) & Philipa Thornton (Relationship Psychologist).
