2015 LACPA CE Program

Saturday, March 21, 2015 

Power Dynamics in Intimate Relationships

9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.  CE Credits 6.0

Held at The New Center for Psychoanalysis in Los Angeles

This seminar examines how adults use power in relationships—and how we can make these dynamics and their consequences more visible to clients. We will examine how to assess power dynamics and their effects, looking at meta-issues such as narratives, existential issues, and relationship contracts. We will look at how to shape couples’ conflicts so they are more effective (and less scary to the conflict- avoidant). And we will see how power can be consciously used to invigorate sexual relationships.



Presenter: Marty Klein, Ph.D.
