This workshop will identify common mistakes in work with mixed-agenda couples (one leaning toward divorce and the other wanting to save the marriage), and will teach a new protocol for discernment counseling to help clients make a decision that has integrity for all involved, and that improves the odds of healing fragile bonds. Continuing eduation credit is available through this workshop.

Presented by:
Bill Doherty, LP, LMFT, Director
Steve Harris, LMFT, Associate Director
Bridget Manley Mayer, MS, LMFT, Project Coordinator
