The objective of this course is to identify advances in treatment and research in couple therapy. Biological, psychological, and
sociological considerations will be addressed. As a result of attending this course, participants will be able to: identify different
types of treatment interventions; summarize issues impacting intimacy, divorce, and remarriage; define problems associated
with sexual dysfunction, affairs, and narcissism; describe the problems that children face as a result of marital discord; and
present the most common problems (and their solutions) that couples and therapists experience. The course is intended for all
mental health and medical clinicians, marriage and family therapists, and others interested in couples and couples therapy.
