Online Trauma Supervision Group with Dr. Silvina Irwin & Michael Barnett

As we all know, couples therapy in-and-of-itself can be quite complicated and nuanced, however, the presence of unresolved trauma creates an extraordinary set of complexities that even the most seasoned therapists struggle with.  When unresolved trauma is present,   couples therapy often comes to a standstill, goes off the rails with emotional intensity, or gets dragged down by the heavy weight of hopelessness for therapist and couples alike.

Because of the great need for more specific supervision around complex cases involving trauma, Michael Barnett and I will be offering an online consultation group focusing on working with couples in which one or both partners suffer from the impact of unresolved trauma in their lives. The aim of the group is to assist EFT therapists in tailoring case conceptualization and therapeutic interventions to meet the needs of traumatized couples with deliberate therapeutic confidence and effectiveness.

The group will offer opportunities for therapists to discuss their trauma cases for guidance, consultation and supervision in a safe and supportive setting. 


  • The group will be limited to 15 participants

  • Meetings are every other Wednesday from 11:00 - 12:30 PST/2:00-3:30 EST beginning on October 23rd for a total of 12 meetings:

    • Meeting Dates: October 23, November 6, November 20, December 4, December 18, January 15, January 29, February 12, February 26, March 11, March 25, and April 8.

  • Fees: There are two payment options available:  

    • 1 lump sum of $960.00 (Savings of $60.00) 

    • 2 payments of $510.00

  • The group will meet on Zoom – a HIPAA compliant secure video-conferencing platform

  • In order to address the predictable self-of the therapist issues that surface when working with traumatized clients, we ask that participants commit to the entirety of the group series for the explicit goal of promoting an environment of emotional safety.
