Integrative Behavioral Couple Therapy (IBCT) is a cutting-edge intervention for couples who are working through relationship concerns. Supported by current research, it has been chosen by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs as its couples therapy treatment of choice.

IBCT integrates the twin goals of acceptance and change as positive outcomes for couples in therapy. A third generation behavior therapy, IBCT holds that couples who succeed in therapy usually make concrete behavioral changes to accommodate the needs
of their partner. However, they also show greater emotional acceptance of each other and a willingness to accept unchangeable aspects of their partner’s personality. This will be a skill building workshop designed to prepare participants to begin implementing IBCT in their own practice.

Class size is limited to 40.
