Presenter: Ruth Rosen Cohen, LCSW and Pat Colucci-Coritt, Ph.D.

Fee: $100 | FIW Alumni: $90.00
Betty Carter’s book, Love, Honor and Negotiate, could not be more relevant than it is today. Using the FIW model of treatment, we view managing closeness and distance and balancing power within the couple as central challenges that re-emerge at many points throughout the relationship and across the life cycle stages.
Now, in the time of the Covid-19 pandemic, couples are working from home, with little or no time apart, they must share time and space as never before. Without the natural separation of work or other activities that typically create space for the couple, long-standing issues may be magnified or new conflicts may develop.
We will discuss case material with participants to explore ways for couples to manage closeness and distance and expand their problem-solving capacity as they re-negotiate their relationship in the context of Covid-19.
