Online Training on Couples Counseling

Online Training on Couples Counseling
Trainer: Tom Ryan and Maryam Suheyl

Savaira offered 20 hours of virtual Interactive training in Couples Counseling for psychologists spread over five Sundays in September and October. The training was facilitated by Tom Ryan (Master in Counseling Psychology, Gottman certified) with Ms. Maryam Suheyl (Master in Marriage and Family Therapy) as the co-facilitator. This skills-based training was designed to teach effective approaches in couple’s therapy. The 27 participants learned skills in effective communication, conflict resolution, improving relationships, and addressing specific problems. Participants also learned how the therapist’s role differs in couples versus individual counseling. Three follow-up supervision sessions will be held in November and December.
