Mindfulness, practically applied through Caroline Welch’s 3Ps approach of Purpose, Pivoting, and Pacing, provides a useful tool for enriching our well-being both personally and professionally. In this webinar Caroline and couples therapist Ellyn Bader will explore why these concepts are so vital (particularly for women) and how mindfulness can cultivate the resilience that is so needed in couples therapy.
Purpose is what’s most important to us. Research reveals that its cultivation is associated with our mental and medical health. Dr. Bader will discuss how she brings Purpose into her couples therapy practice throughout varying stages of treatment.
Pivoting is proactively making changes when needed and beneficial. The relevance for couples therapy includes the importance of relationship maintenance, addressing issues before they become overwhelming, and responding skillfully when triggered by a partner.
Pacing is slowing down on a daily basis, and also taking a broader view of our overall health spans. In couples therapy, this means acknowledging what the major challenges are and being active, rather than passive participants in our lives and relationships. We will also take a look at the ways in which therapists who try to go too fast may undermine themselves.
Caroline is joined by Ellyn Bader, a leading couples therapist, as they discuss the intersection of Caroline’s 3-P process and couples work. In addition to running a private practice, Ellyn has co-authored the books, In Quest of the Mythical Mate: A Developmental Approach to Diagnosis and Treatment in Couples Therapy and Tell Me No Lies: How to Face the Truth and Build a Loving Marriage with her husband, Dr. Peter Pearson.
