Upcoming Events

Live Workshop: Object Relations, taught by Dr. Stan Tatkin

June 28, 2024
8:00am - 10:30am Pacific time

PACT+ Members: Sign in and reserve your FREE seat.

In this workshop, PACT developer Stan Tatkin, PsyD, MFT, will discuss how to apply object relations theory to work effectively with couples. 

A valuable framework for couple therapists, object relations theory is a way of thinking about development and how people operate and interact with others from childhood through adulthood in increasingly complex ways.

Applying object relations theory is useful when working with:

  • Particularly difficult people
  • Any issues of developmental delay
  • A history of trauma
  • Brain disorder or injury

Stan will break down the theory and explain how – and when – to apply it.

  • Help regulate yourself and others.
  • Determine a strategy based on what you observe in the couple.
  • Help people differentiate previous relationships as children from current relationships.
  • Identify work to be done on a partner’s individuation and differentiation.

Stan will also discuss inner child work and parts work.

Learn through lecture, discussion, video demonstrations, and role playing. Ask questions if you have them.
