Terry Real

“Family dysfunction rolls down from generation to generation, like a fire in the woods, taking down everything in its path until one person in one generation has the courage to turn and face the flames. That person brings peace to their ancestors and spares the children that follow.”
— Terry Real, Creator of Relational Life Therapy

A Note From Terry Real

Welcome!

Connection has never felt more precious or critical. We have never wanted more from our relationships, not just our romantic relationships but friends, family, and children. At no time in history has it been more clear that intimacy is life’s grail.

Yet divorce attorneys have never been busier. Perhaps this is because we all have lived in an anti-relational, addictive, narcissistic culture that may give lip service to the importance of relationships but has not taught us the skills to realize them.

As therapists, we can fill in those gaps. There is 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)—my life’s work.

Developing my approach has been a thirty-year project. When I first got into the reality of practice, the couples who came to me were suffering, and the tools I had were inadequate for the task. So I made it my mission to figure out a way to bring relief, healing, and change to my clients.

After teaching RLT workshops all over the U.S., I created this online course to make the material available to more people. I designed RLT Level 1 to give you an in-depth introduction to the theory and practice of the RLT model. It is also the first step toward RLT certification and will prepare you for the Level 2 & 3 trainings.

I have seen this model help thousands of therapists get faster and more effective results for their clients. In the kinds of cases I see, it can be quite detrimental to let therapy drag on. RLT allows you to go deep and understand the negative patterns in the relationship quickly to help clients make rapid and substantive changes.

I will give you the fruit of my life’s work in this training. 

I encourage you to join me and my terrific faculty for 10 hours of training. You’ll join myself, Cathy Hill (Director of the RLT Training School), and Anna Sterk (senior RLT therapist and educator) for five 2-hour classes. Cathy and I will lead the teaching before Anna takes your questions to deepen your learning. These sessions will be packed full of real case demonstrations so you can see how the techniques translate into practice.

I look forward to seeing you in the training and sharing the transformative power of RLT with you.

Warmly,

Terry

P.S. I’ve put my heart into the Level 1 training we are about to start together—to make it exactly the training I wish I could have received myself. As you get deeper into it, you’ll see that there are many refinements and subtleties to the RLT model

Here’s what you’ll learn inside each class:

Class 1.

Content types included in this module:

WHAT IS RELATIONAL LIFE THERAPY?

The differences between RLT and traditional psychodynamic therapy are explored. Also considered are the stances of “one-down shame” and “one-up grandiosity” in couples; according to RLT, true intimacy can only happen when partners are “same-as” with each other. RLT is about action and swift results, helping people to make major changes to the negative parts of their character, and the critical role and stance of the therapist is described.

Presented also are the concepts of Relational Mindfulness, Joining Through the Truth, and psychological patriarchy.

Learning objectives:

  • Explain the 3 Phases of RLT and how RLT differs from traditional therapy
  • Understand the RLT view of power imbalances in couples, of psychological patriarchy, and how these are addressed through therapy
  • Describe the role and approach of the therapist in RLT
  • Explain Relational Mindfulness and the “fight, flight, fix” responses 
Class 2.

Content types included in this module:

OVERVIEW OF PHASE 1

The reasons why, in RLT, data must be gathered as a first stage of therapy. Also laid out are the seven diagnostic lenses of RLT, and the first first explored in depth. The “stance, stance, dance” dynamic is explained, tools are given to describe each partner’s pattern and the dance that results, and the goal of therapy in working with this entire dynamic is expressed. Losing strategies, preconditions, and blatant/latent stances are explored.

Learning objectives:

  • List the seven lenses
  • Explain the role of data gathering
  • Understand how preconditions are addressed in RLT
  • Differentiate the various losing strategies clients employ
  • Explain the difference between blatant and latent stances
Class 3.

Content types included in this module:

RLT LENSES 4,5 and 6

Relational trauma and its impact on adult relationships is explored. The three major family of origin roles are discussed, and advice is given on how to work with grandiose partners. The Relationship Grid diagnostic tool is laid out as a tool to help you identify each partner’s relational stance. You will also explore the two kinds of boundaries and self-esteem, with advice on how to work with grandiosity.

Learning objectives:

  • Explain the relational grid and track losing strategies against it
  • Describe the two kinds of boundaries
  • Outline the major family of origin roles and how they play with stances
  • Understand effective approaches to working with grandiose women as well as grandiose men
Class 4.

Content types included in this module:

USE OF THE RLT LENSES IN INTERVENTION & FINDING LEVERAGE

We move from diagnosis to treatment. Here, you will learn how to use the RLT approach of Joining Through the Truth to lovingly confront clients and engage them in the therapeutic process. The concept of leverage is explored: what it is, why it’s necessary, and how it can be used. Advice is given on empowering latent people, and the concept of the “relational champion” is presented.

Learning objectives:

  • Understand the concept of leverage and how to use it
  • Describe strategies for latent people
  • Understand that RLT requires that the latent person be a “relational champion” in therapy 
Class 5.

Content types included in this module:

RECONNECTING THE BLATANT
This module focuses on empowering the latent, finding leverage, and reconnecting the blatant.  From a neurobiological perspective we discuss how to create the right combination of stress and safety for promoting change.  We explore how to work with the fears of the latent and the grandiosity of the blatant.  Terry demonstrates joining through the truth with a blatant man.
 

Learning objectives:

  • Understand the concept of appropriate discrepancy and how it works with Neuroplasticity
  • Understand types of leverage
  • know how to join through the truth
“Terry helps reawaken couples who seem trapped in a long-term stalemate and allows them to move toward growth and fuller Selfhood.”

Richard Schwartz, originator of Internal Family Systems

8 Ways RLT is Different From Traditional Therapy

ADDRESSING GRANDIOSITY AND SHAME

Traditional psychotherapy focuses primarily on healing shame: helping people come up from feeling “one-down,” or inferior. RLT is just as concerned with shame’s cousin, grandiosity. We help people come to the level ground, neither “one-up” and superior nor “one-down” and inferior.

LASTING TRANSFORMATION

In traditional therapy, character is considered deeply embedded and hard to change. In RLT, we see character as more or less equal to one’s internalized family—the repertoire of relational themes inherited from the family of origin. Character is changeable. We set the bar high: we expect to see dramatic change in our clients. It’s not unusual for clients to simply stop doing negative things they’ve done their whole lives. And, with support, these changes can be permanent. RLT moves fast and makes things happen—its techniques help clients make real characterological changes.

IT’S ABOUT SUBJECTIVE REALITY

There is no room for objective reality in personal relationships. Who’s right or wrong doesn’t matter. It’s about two subjective realities that have to negotiate with each other, make things work for themselves as a team. In RLT, we focus on helping clients work as a team with an “us vs. the problem” mindset and move beyond the “you vs. me” mindset and the power struggle of who’s right.

WE TAKE SIDES​

In RLT, therapists are not neutral—we take sides. Not all problems in a relationship are 50/50, some are 70/30, some are 99/1. When there’s power imbalance, we explicitly side with the one-down person to restore balance. RLT therapists don’t try to seduce or earn the trust of grandiose people; instead, we gather data and use leverage to engage resistant clients in the process.

INNER CHILD WORK IN THE PRESENCE OF THE PARTNER

Deep character and trauma work are done right in the room, in the presence of the partner. This is different from traditional therapy, with its emphasis on individual work. It’s not about transference; it’s about the client changing their relationship with themselves and their partner. Unless one of the partners is quite viciously critical, people will go deeper in the presence of their partner, and this work helps build empathy and connection between couples.

TEACHING RELATIONAL SKILLS

Traditional therapy heals through nurturing; RLT believes that nurturing and empathy are necessary but not sufficient. In RLT, we also teach our clients how to live relationally—in a way that is connected to oneself, one’s thoughts, feelings, sensations, and to others. RLT is educational and it empowers clients with the skills to repair and cherish their relationships for life.

WE'RE DIRECT

We lovingly confront our clients: RLT is all about telling people what to do in certain situations, educating, and equipping them to have a corrective emotional experience with their partner. RLT therapists take sides and tell people what to do—and what the consequences will be if they don’t do it.

THERAPISTS AND CLIENTS ARE EQUAL

In traditional therapy, the therapist is an expert; either that, or in the Carl Rogers-style approach, the therapist is a follower. In RLT, the therapist is neither above nor below the client: we are in the mud with them, and our main authority comes from our personal relational recovery. RLT therapists make use of judicious self-disclosure—telling stories of how we use these skills in our own relationships and know what works.

ADDRESSING GRANDIOSITY AND SHAME

Traditional psychotherapy focuses primarily on healing shame: helping people come up from feeling “one-down,” or inferior. RLT is just as concerned with shame’s cousin, grandiosity. We help people come to the level ground, neither “one-up” and superior nor “one-down” and inferior.

A tip: “Don’t get out ahead of your client. They’re the ones to assert the leverage, not you. You go too far when you act as if you have more leverage than you have. You go too far if you take on the offender of the blatant, rather than have the latent take on the blatant, generally.”

Terry Real

What Others Say About RLT

“Terry Real helps overturn old-fashioned, confining roles and opens up a treasury of hope for lasting and exciting intimacy for couples everywhere.”

— Edward Hallowell, M.D., author of Crazy Busy

“Terry’s work provided foundations of “telling the truth” to clients. I did it easily with individuals but stumbled with couples. Now I LOVE working with couples. It is now always profoundly moving & instructive.” 

— Jeanne O.

“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.

“Terry, you are an absolute gift to the the mental health community. “

— David Feder, MSW, RSW, CSAT, Close Connections, Toronto, Ontario, Canada

“Before learning Terry Real’s model I’d work with couples to problem-solve their dilemmas of the day. I always had misgivings about the long-term potential of my work because I didn’t know how to move in deeper to address with them their relational processes. Now, having Terry’s model for teaching clients healthy relating, I have guidelines to help them perform the modest miracle of personal transformation on a permanent level. “ 

— R.D.

“You have lots of ideas that are very useful with couple work – particularly with the male client. I love your stuff about gender discourses and boundaries, asking clearly for what you need from your partner.”

— Claire O

The Shift from Individualistic to Relational Thinking

by Terry Real

Objective vs. Subjective Reality

“He won’t listen!” cries Lucy, flinging open her arms, as she sits on the edge of the couch, as if to implore me.

“I don’t get her,” says Stan, sinking his face in his hands, beleaguered, exhausted, as if to say, “No matter what I do…”

And then there’s me, watching, listening. Couples on the brink fly in to see me. Together we spend one or two full days working, at the end of which time we agree that you’re either back on track or divorcing. One way or another, this is the last stop. Lucy and Stan are on the edge of dissolution, have been for over a year. This past weekend was a disaster.

So, what happened?” I ask.

Stan snorts. “This whole thing is ridiculous,” he declares, one leg pumping, impatient, annoyed.

Lucy cuts him off, taking charge. “We took two cars, for a weekend alone at our house on the Cape. Both were loaded with groceries. So, I can’t see out the back. Already I’m nervous. I don’t like driving at night. I ask Stan to stay by me, in case I… I don’t know, get lost, take a wrong turn, whatever.

She wanted me to keep an eye on her,” Stan tells me, wanting to hurry the story along. “Which I did.

Which you didn’t!” says Lucy.

Which is exactly what I did. Look,” Stan turns to me, the arbiter. “I was winding my way through the traffic. I’m about two cars up ahead of her…

But I can’t see him,” Lucy interjects.

I’ve got her square in my rearview mirror.” I look at Stan’s harried expression. I’m already sensing where this going. “She calls me, panicked, out of her mind. ‘You said you wouldn’t leave me!’ Already, she’s like screaming at me.

But you left me! After you said…

Okay,” I interrupt. “I think I’ve got it.” Stan and Lucy were caught in a typical who’s right / who’s wrong battle – hinging on their slightly different definitions of what it meant to “be there for” Lucy. To Lucy, “being there” meant being right by her side. For Stan, it meant keeping an eye on her. Who was objectively right?

Taking Sides

That’s a trick question. In marital relationships it’s never a matter of landing on the one true reality, but rather two people in need of negotiating differing subjective realities.

Between the two, I sided with Lucy – a difference between RLT and other therapies. We take sides. Stan was factually correct but relationally incorrect. Was he, as promised, looking after Lucy to make sure she was alright? Yes, absolutely. And if Stan had been the one to make the request, he would have been fine. But Stan wasn’t married to Stan. Lucy wanted the comfort of Stan by her side, in sight of her. It wasn’t his aid she was after, but the reassurance of his company. In this instance – as in so many others just like it, Lucy assured me, Stan didn’t “get it.” He missed the point because he wasn’t thinking relationally.

Shifting into
Relational Thinking

Even though on the brink of divorce, Stan wasn’t a bad guy. What he argued so vehemently for, the point he got so defensive about was, in fact right – in the linear, individualistic, Newtonian world we all live in. But I have a saying, “You can be right, or you can be married. What’s more important to you?”

Repair & Reconnection

I turn to Stan: “In this moment, right now, ask yourself, would you rather make the case that you’re right or would you rather make peace with your wife and help her feel better?”

“Meaning?” he says, tentative but listening.

“Turn to your wife right now and tell her something from the heart,” I coach him.

And, bless him, with a little encouragement, he tries it.

“Lucy,” he takes her hand. “I’m sorry, okay? I’m sorry if you felt so abandoned that day.”

“And you’re sorry you didn’t hear her,” I add.

“I am,” he says. “Really. No BS. I wish I could have listened better.” Stan looks at his wife’s tearful face.

“I’ve been waiting for this moment for years,” she says, crying, her body straining toward him.

“Wanna hug from the guy?” I ask her and she lurches forward, reaching for him.

“Take your time,” I tell them, as Stan rocks her gently. “Take all the time you need.”

Stan’s well-meaning but misguided loyalty to “sorting things out,” that is, determining the one right reality about it, deprived them both of moments like the one they had now in my office. Moments of repair. When Stan stopped defending himself and instead tended to his wife’s bruised feelings, she felt heard, the chasm between them was bridged, and everyone could breathe again.

 Presenter Bio

Terry Real, LICSW:

Terry Real is the bestselling author of I Don’t Want to Talk About It: Overcoming the Secret Legacy of Male Depression, the straight-talking How Can I Get Through to You? Reconnecting Men and Women, and most recently The New Rules of Marriage: What You Need to Make Love Work.

He founded the Relational Life Institute, offering workshops for couples, individuals, and parents as well as a professional training program for clinicians.

Terry’s work, with its rigorous commonsense approach, speaks to both men and women. A proponent of “full-throttle marriage,” Terry has been called “the most innovative voice in thinking about and treating men and their relationships in the world today.”

Cathy Hill, Ph.D., R. Psych

Cathy Hill began training in RLT in 2010 after attending her first Relationship Bootcamp and from that experience was determined that Terry needed to teach others to do RLT. Cathy persisted in this idea and Terry ended up having Cathy set up adanced training for his senior therapists which was very well received. Soon after she was named Director of Training for RLI. Cathy is trained in the ‘scientist-practitioner’ model, and is devoted to getting RLT ‘evidence-based’ which requires excellent in training in order to translate into excellence in practice.
