CBT for Interpersonal Conflicts (Self-Study)



Discover where your clients’ ineffective and interfering patterns of relating come from; and help them go to the bottom of their interpersonal conflicts and relationship problems through the use of CBT

Hosted by SWEET Institute

Join us for this hybrid in-person and online full day hands on conference on CBT for Interpersonal Conflicts

Come and master the 4-point questionnaire that will help you quickly diagnose interpersonal conflicts and learn how to quickly address them accordingly. Come and learn to quickly identify the types of coping strategies that have led to the interpersonal conflicts that are currently present. Come and learn with us why “people are always leaving” our clients, why they believe that “they don’t belong anywhere,” and why they always put “other people’s needs before theirs and at their detriment.” Learn with us how to help them get out of this trap.

Join us and learn how to best get to the root of why our clients believe that “No one could really love me if they knew the real me;” or “whenever I start getting close to someone, I’m afraid they’ll see how messed up I am;” or “it’s dangerous to trust people.” Join us and help clients manage schema-triggered pain differently; and learn how to help them replace ineffective schema coping with responses based on what really works both for them and their relationships.
