Spring 2015 Conference with Terry Real, LICSW

On May 15th, 2015, we hosted our annual joint spring conference with NASW at the Marriott Conference Center. Terry Real, LICSW, a nationally recognized therapist, social worker, author, and teacher, discussed helping couples by “Joining Through the Truth.” Terry created Relational Life Therapy (RLT), a “way of truth-telling by holding the mirror up to clients to help them see their part in the dysfunctional dance of their relationship and—the trickier part—showing them difficult truths about themselves in a way that lets them feel that we’re on their side, and are actually rooting for them”.
