About the Course:

Learn the basics of conflict resolution and a ground-breaking comprehensive theory of emotional health, psychopathology, and treatment. Dr. Heitler’s book makes therapy more efficient by clearly mapping out the journey from upsetting conflict to resolution and relief. She proposes a conflict-focused diagnostic system with clear treatment guidance. You will learn the skills, attitudes, and three major steps necessary for conflict to proceed to resolution. Dr. Heitler proposes that psychopathology occurs when people detour off the path of constructive conflict resolution. The book describes the specific detours characterizing each of the syndromes that therapists commonly treat: depression, anxiety reactions, anger, addictive patterns, and family conflicts.
