All About This Workshop

Couples Bootcamp was created to allow partners to explore their relational issues in a safe environment while learning how to work together to heal and improve their relationship. Combining Pia Mellody’s groundbreaking work on family of origin childhood relational trauma and Stan Tatkin’s mix of neuroscience, human biology of arousal, and attachment theory, couples work in small groups.

Using a holistic approach to healing, couples practice how to address painful issues utilizing boundaries, nervous system regulation techniques, and improved communication, building on existing strengths within the coupleship. New rules of engagement are introduced. Vulnerability is encouraged. Exploration of embroiled patterns stemming from family of origin are examined, reducing shame and aiding in the release of those behaviors. Couples Bootcamp is designed by PIT- (Post-Induction Therapy) and PACT- (Psychobiological Approach to Couples Therapy) trained therapists.

Cost: $5,500 per couple, which includes

  • meals
  • evening activities (yoga, tai chi, auricular acupuncture, live music)
  • 12-Step meeting
  • Brain Spa access
  • gym access
