The 2020 Minnesota Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (MAMFT) Annual Conference is organized by Minnesota Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (MAMFT) and will be held from Sep 10 - 11, 2020 at The Westin Edina Galleria, Edina, Minnesota, United States of America. Loving with the Brain in Mind: A Relational-Neurobiological Approach to Couple Therapy Couples in distress often get caught up in cycles of mutual blame and emotional reactivity. This workshop explores psychodynamic, interpersonal, intergenerational, cultural, and neurobiological factors fueling these cycles. Dr. Fishbane will present an integrative approach to transforming couple impasses, informed by interpersonal neurobiology and relationship research. The focus is on helping couples shift from disempowered, blaming stances to positions of relational empowerment, connection, and respect. The workshop highlights the interplay between kneejerk reactivity (driven by the emotional brain) and a more thoughtful ability to live according to goals and values (powered by the higher brain). We will explore ways to help partners become proactive lovers, working to co-author their relationship together. The workshop will also consider the challenges of change in couple therapy, given the power of habit in the human brain, as well as the potential of neuroplasticity, the ability of the brain to change. Dr. Fishbane’s presentation builds on her book, Loving with the Brain in Mind: Neurobiology & Couple Therapy, part of the Norton Series on Interpersonal Neurobiology. Attendees will learn to: • Identify brain processes that underlie couple reactivity • Diagram & work with the vulnerability cycles of distressed couples • Identify & work with “unfinished business” from partners’ families of origin • Facilitate relational empowerment in couple therapy, including empathy, respect, & differentiation Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
