Cognitive Behavioural Couple Therapy: Introductory workshop - March

Go Back


Relationship distress is common in the UK, with over 40% of marriages ending in divorce, and approximately one third of couples in stable partnerships reporting difficulties in their relationship. The past few years have seen a surge of interest in cognitive behavioural approaches to working with couples in the UK. There is increasing evidence that couple-based interventions can be effective not only in ameliorating relationship distress, but also in addressing psychopathology, such as depression, obsessive compulsive disorder and anorexia nervosa. Behavioural couple therapy for depression is now a treatment option in many IAPT services and is supported by NICE guidelines when relationship distress is considered a maintaining factor in the presenting symptomatology.

This workshop will provide an introduction to the theory and application of cognitive behavioural couple therapy. The theoretical underpinnings of the model will be described, along with the main intervention techniques. Materials will cover assessment, formulation, and outcome measurement. The challenges of working with distressed couples will be discussed. The workshop will be interactive and role-play exercises, as well as group discussions, will be used to practise clinical skills throughout the day. The evidence supporting couple therapy will be presented and participants will have plenty of opportunities to ask questions
