Couples Counseling: Using the Power and Intimacy Formula

John Lucas

This seminar will offer a simple but all-encompassing formula for therapy and assessment. This formula ideally applies to couple's work. Examples of assessment and application of the formula will be offered in the presentation. The presentation will also present a useful integration of psychology and Christianity for clients with a Christian framework.  Based on this simple formula, the presentation will also apply CBT principles to address areas of anger management, conflict resolution and self-worth.

The presentation will also touch on the application of this formula with other major areas of concern, namely, parenting and addictions.

Participants will learn:

1. The general principles of the Power and Intimacy formula in treatment.

2.   How to apply the Power and Intimacy formula to couples therapy.

3.   How the Power and Intimacy formula can be applied to various areas of treatment, including individual therapy, addictions, and parenting.

4.   How the Power and Intimacy formula can be used to integrate psychology and Christianity into a successful therapy approach.
