Therapist Training on Discernment Counseling for Couples
Discernment counseling is a powerful process for couples with divorce ambivalence who aren't sure whether to pursue couples counseling or consider divorce. This short term protocol helps “mixed agenda couples” where one is leaning out of the marriage and the other wants to save it. The introductory video on discernment is now available only as part of comprehensive training in discernment counseling, see “Other Discernment Counseling Training Information" below. If you are a therapist who has purchased the introductory video and you have a password you can view the video.
