Zur Institute is pleased to announce our first LIVE Case Consultation Group. The series of five meetings will focus on couples’ therapy. In each 75-minute meeting two of the participating therapists will have the chance to present a case. While you watch or listen, each one will work with Dr. Marty Klein, who will ask unexpected questions, fearlessly role play, analyze the narratives, and stimulate new ways of thinking about each case. Participants can of course ask questions. You'll come away from each session looking at your own cases with fresh eyes.
When: Five Thursdays starting 9/17, continuing 10/1, 10/15, 10/29 and 11/12.
Live at 11-12:15pm Pacific Time. Sessions will be recorded and available on-demand for two weeks after each session.
For Everyone: General Public ~ Clients ~ Professionals – Please Share!
