When a couple has de-escalated, they often feel so much better, believing therapy has been successful and is over.  But until each one is able to reach for the other from a softer place, they remain vulnerable to relapse and disappointment.  Furthermore, for permanent restructuring to happen, the more withdrawn partner needs to be able to re-engage in the "dance" and the more critical, blaming partner must then reach toward the other from a vulnerable place.  Presenters plan to discuss the process and challenges of the important change event, "blamer softening," and to show taped segments from sessions with two couples, one which achieved an apparent but "false" blamer softening, and one where the blamer actually softened.

Husband and wife therapist team, Parker Stacy, LPC and Mary Stacy, LCSW will present. 

Presenters and Discussant:

Parker Stacy, MBA, LPC and Mary E. Stacy, LCSW are certified EFT therapists and approved supervisor candidates who specialize in couple counseling.  Mary also runs EFT psychotherapy connection groups.  Their private practice is located in Greenwich, CT. 

Non-members welcome - join at the door and get a $10 discount.
