Master the World of Relational Life Therapy

Give your clients—and yourself—the tools to build lifelong authentic connections

Connection has never felt more critical. We have never wanted more from our relationships, yet divorce attorneys have never been busier. Perhaps this is because we have lived in an anti-relational, addictive, narcissistic culture that may give lip service to the importance of relationships but hasn’t taught us the skills to realize them.

As therapists, we can fill in those gaps. There’s a world of relational technology that can be taught and mastered once we open to the need for it. We can give our clients those tools. This is the basis of Relational Life Therapy (RLT)—the life’s work of internationally recognized family therapist Terry Real.

When you train in RLT, you can master the skills to help clients accelerate toward untapped levels of closeness, intimacy, and trust. To help them live powerful, relational lives—with themselves and each other.

What Our Graduates
Have To Say

“My work with Terry has greatly enriched me as a therapist. I’ve been in practice over 35 years and trained with many exceptional therapists. Training with Terry has pulled all this together and enabled my interventions to be more elegant and to the point, resulting in my client work being more focused and penetrating without sacrificing empathy or compassion”

— Yana Hoffman

“After 25 years of working as a Psychotherapist and Marriage Counselor I was ready to “hang it all up.” I was more than burnt out. Now, 6 months later, I am reinvested in my work and enjoying it in a brand new way. Renewed energy and enthusiasm for my work has replaced the negativity I was experiencing. Thanks so much RLT!”

— Roseanna Zoubek

“Some of the things I love about Terry Real and his work are the practical steps, down-to-earth guidance and his model of having the courage and respect to be honest with couples when one partner is behaving in a way that needs to be addressed first.”

— Rachel M.
