Ellyn Bader & Peter Pearson

Lies, Deception, Passive-Aggressive Behavior, Unrelenting Hostility: Stimulating change with tough couples problems

Many challenging issues stymie couples therapists including deception and lies to a partner and to you; passive-aggressive behavior; and unrelenting hostility with no motivation for change. Untangling the web of deception, replacing passive-aggressive behavior with action and motivation, and shifting hostility in early sessions are all necessary for sustained change in entrenched couples.

In this one-day interactive workshop, Drs. Ellyn Bader and Peter Pearson will use their Developmental Model to demonstrate how to intervene incisively and support the developmental growth of each partner.

You will start the day by seeing a live role play demo of a first session with a hostile/angry couple. You’ll learn to stimulate collaboration without asking why they are seeing you or asking how you can help them. You’ll see how to gracefully shift unmotivated partners into embracing self-change rather than partner rehabilitation.

Your confidence will grow during the day as you learn to integrate attachment theory, differentiation, and neuroscience with your next round of tough clients.

In this fast paced day you will learn how to inspire motivation in unmotivated partners; identify a continuum of lies and skillfully confront deception; build motivation after infidelity; and integrate the intrapsychic impases of passive-aggressive partners and learn to interrupt the over-functioning of their spouses. You will take away innovative and practical approaches as you spend the day with the co-founders of The Couples Institute. You will get the benefit of their experience specializing with couples since 1984­

Conference Opening

 

Timothy B. Tyson

Special guest Timothy B. Tyson will speak at the opening reception. Tyson was a child when the 1970 lynching of Henry Marrow occurred in his hometown of Oxford, N.C. He remembers the moment he heard about the murder of the  23-year-old black man. His book, Blood Done Sign My Name, is a historic account of the race violence, tension, and riots that surrounded the events.

Tyson’s father, a minster, supported the Civil Rights movement, which incited anger in the small town. His family eventually fled Oxford. These events had a great impact on the child who would grow up to become a scholar on the history, and current realities, of racial prejudice in the United States. He also wrote The Blood of Emmett Till, which shed new light on the 1955 kidnapping and harrowing murder of a 14 year old boy. Tyson will address how the past can inform the present in our current work toward healing the prejudices that divide us.

Tyson is a senior research scholar at the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University. He also is an adjunct professor at the University of North Carolina. According to Duke’s Center for Documentary Studies website, The Blood of Emmett Till has received many accolades including the 2018 Robert F. Kennedy Book Award.

The Los Angeles Times and National Public Radio selected it as Best Book of 2017, while the Atlanta Journal-Constitution named it Best Southern Book of 2017.

Tyson’s book Blood Done Sign My Name was a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award, winner of the Southern Book Award for Nonfiction and the Grawemeyer Award in Religion. Tyson was executive producer of Mike Wiley’s 2008 play and writer-consultant for Jeb Stuart’s 2010 feature film adaptation by that title.

He is co-editor with David Cecelski of Democracy Betrayed: The Wilmington Race Riot of 1898 and Its Legacy, which won the 1998 Outstanding Book Award from the Gustavus Meyers Center for Human Rights in North America and author of Ghosts of 1898: Wilmington’s Race Riot and the Rise of White Supremacy, which won 2007 Excellence Award from the National Association of Black Journalists. He serves on the executive board of the North Carolina NAACP, Repairers of the Breach, and the UNC Center for Civil Rights.

The Transgenerational Script Questionnaire (TSQ) an Aid to Untangle the Family Tree

Gloria Noriega Gayol, Mexico, Invited Speaker

 

Psychotherapy

The TSQ is an aid to untangle the family tree. The TSQ is an effective instrument to start untangling the family tree. In a quick and clear way the participants will be able to understand the complex structure of their transgenerational script, as a pattern that unconsciously have been repeating within three to five generations. Through a brief didactic presentation and a group process, the participants will be able to differentiate their healthy and toxic family scripts to reinforce the former and redecide the latter, in a subsequent therapeutic work. The TSQ can be applied in individual and group sessions, for own benefit and for the relieve of further generations.

An Introduction to Educational Transactional Analysis

The purpose of this post-conference institute is to provide an introduction to the field of educational transactional analysis. If you are involved in the task of education then there will be plenty of interest. For those working in formal education, schooling, community learning, or adult training, we will be considering theory and practice informed by TA. Teachers, trainers, parents and students are all welcome to explore this distinctive field of TA application. Within the workshop Giles will offer an overview of learning imagoes (Napper & Newton, 2015) and the learning continuum (Barrow, 2007) in developing educational purpose and identity. He will also introduce the Health System, a positive integrated framework of TA models (Newton, 2007).

Biography

Giles Barrow, TSTA (Education) has been involved in education for more than 30 years, starting out as a mainstream teacher, then specializing in provision for students excluded from school. He currently works and writes on the themes of relational aspects of teaching, learning, school leadership and culture. He also runs a small farm in rural England.

Creating Community in the Face of Economic and Racial Distress: When life does not support an “I’m OK-You’re OK” position

The vast majority of people living on the planet today do not live under conditions that support an “I’m OK-You’re OK” life position.

Eric Berne wrote about life positions on one, and only one time, in 1962, as a preliminary and unfinished effort to classify the underlying motivations for games.  The concept of life positions was later taken up by Thomas Harris, Frank Ernst, and Claude Steiner and was gradually transformed into a slogan of ideals and values within Transactional Analysis.

When does the idealization of “I’m OK/You’re OK” form a kind of tyranny and a turning away from the ugliness and despair in the lives of many?  How do we as counselors, therapists, educators and consultants work with individuals and social groups whose life circumstances foster a “not-OK” position?  How do we communicate respect and acceptance of a “not-OK” position? How do we as professionals bring (or not bring) this alleged TA ideal into our work? We will take time to explore and critically examine the relevance of “I’m OK/You’re OK” in our work.

For the past 15 years I have been living in a marginalized, racially diverse (though predominantly African-American), economically distressed community.  I have been a member of the community group devoted to the safety and revitalization of the neighborhood, to which the building of affordable housing has been a key.  It is the responsibility of this board to identify and represent the priorities of the residents and oversee the paid staff. For the past several years I have served as president of the board.  This workshop will be based on what I have learned through my work with my community. We will focus on the complexities of living in a racially diverse and economically distressed neighborhood, the resistances to change, the forces of overt and covert racism, and the efforts to support agency, in contrast to “OKness”.  Aspects of cultural scripting that foster racism and classism will be examined.  Active participation will be encouraged through small group and full group discussions.

Strategic Design for TA Innovation: Finding new ways to heal

Let’s kick start innovation of TA applications using the principles of design thinking!

I became interested in design thinking several years ago. My consultancy work is focused mainly on helping businesses innovate their business practices as quickly as they innovate their products. I have clients all over the world, mainly multinationals, family businesses, and start-ups that want to change their leadership, customer relationships, innovation processes, and cooperation styles to suit the world today.

I was looking for a way to free up creativity and innovative thinking in a world dominated by rationality and linear thinking. In TA terms I work a lot with an excess of Adult, Normative Parent, and Adapted Child energy. But to become innovative, businesses have to tap into Free Child and Rebellious Child thinking, framed by Nurturing Parent perspectives on their customers.

Design thinking comes from a tradition of industrial design in the 1950s, which has been generalized to social issues in the last ten years. Within design thinking, we use an iterative client-focused approach to find solutions for ambiguous issues. Our starting point is that we have to deeply understand our customers to be able to find the real problem and innovative solutions. It is human-centered, playful, visual, focused on learning by doing and wicked problem solving. A bit like TA.

Within this workshop we will use the design thinking process to create new TA products and services for our customers. By the end of the institute the participants will understand design thinking, will have applied the principles to better understand TA clients, and will use client profiling to create new innovative products and services within TA.

The workshop is experiential, framed by plenary theory discussions. The workshop will be given in English.
