    The Dynamics of the Divorcing Couple   with Larry Stone, LMFT

    When working with a client going through a divorce, we often see severe reactions and intense stress.  There is also a tendency for the individual client to paint a very black and white, highly negative picture of their spouse. This presentation will help to create an understanding of how this situation develops, as well as ways to respond to it that will help rather than exacerbate the problems.
    • Learning Objectives:
    • Attendees will develop an understanding of the history and intensity of the conflict often present during the period around the divorce.
    • Attendees will gain an understanding of the cycle between the spouses.
    • Attendees will learn how misguided attempts at support are often destructive.
    • Attendees will learn to differentiate toxic support from helpful support.
      About the Presenter:
