A Unique Look at How a Master Therapist Leads a Couple Through the Minefield of Reconnection…

Terry Real is giving you an all-access pass to 8 LIVE therapy sessions as he works in-depth with one couple, using the therapy method he created, Relational Life Therapy (RLT).

As you know, couples therapy is complex and rarely resolved in one session. This is your rare opportunity to get a real-time, unedited look at how one of the world’s leading couples therapists guides one couple from fractured disconnection to fierce intimacy.

You’ll witness everything: from the initial session where relational stances are diagnosed
to deep trauma work to understand how they formed. You’ll see Terry move the couple
into vulnerability and connection—and hold them in that space.

Finally, you’ll see how he teaches the couple the skills they need to sustain that connection
long after their time in therapy.

…And He’ll Let You in on How He Does It

After each session, you’ll join Terry and your fellow observers for 45 minutes of Q&A to discuss what happened.

Terry will explain what he was thinking at different points and why he did what he did. Plus, you can ask him questions directly to deepen your understanding of the work.

This combination of observation and Q&A will give you a thorough understanding of the RLT model, how it translates in the therapy room, and—most importantly—a clear idea of how to use these techniques in your own sessions.

12 CEUs are available to therapists who attend live for an additional fee. For more information, please go here.

There are two elements of each session:

Observation

This is where you will observe Terry working in-depth with the couple for roughly one hour. During the therapy session, you will remain on mute and not participate. However, you will be able to share comments in a separate live chat with your fellow observers throughout.

Q&A

After each therapy session, you will have roughly 45 minutes to debrief with Terry and your fellow observers. This is where you’ll dive into the details of what happened and how. You can share your observations and ask Terry questions directly. Terry will hold nothing back in his responses, openly disclosing the RLT tools he used and explaining the intent behind 
his actions.

What Can I Expect To See?

RLT is known for producing profound, lasting results in rapid time. You may have seen the deeply moving breakthroughs that happen in Terry’s Couples Experiential—but here you will see how a relationship transforms over the course of therapy.

You’ll move beyond the initial session and see how to guide them through different challenges, work with resistance, hold them in connection, and teach them the skills they need to sustain lifelong intimacy.

Terry has a reputation for saving couples who other therapists struggled to help. Known for his straight-talking, no-nonsense style, Terry disarms with humor, warmth, and compassion. The chance to observe his masterful skill live is not to be missed.

What Will I Learn?

As you observe each session and spend time learning directly from Terry, you will enhance your understanding of couples work and the techniques that move clients forward.
