About the Workshop

This workshop serves to help couples explore their relational difficulties in a safe environment, while learning how to work together to heal their relationship. In a small group of couples, 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, this workshop allows 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.


$5,500 – All-inclusive are meals and evening activities: Yoga, Tai Chi, Auricular Acupuncture, Live Music, and 12-step meeting. Access to the Brain Center and gym are also included in the cost of the workshop.
