    • 3 Aug 2018
    • 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM (PDT)
    • Coffee Cartel at 1820 S. Catalina Ave., Redondo Beach

    The topic of our next book group is "Couples Counseling Techniques."  Rather than select one specific book for the group to discuss,  we are going to open up the options for this August meeting.  We invite you to pick and read whatever clinical book on a couples therapy method you would like to know more about.  Whether you are already an experienced couples therapist or educating yourself on some couples therapy basics, there is so much more to learn clinically!  At our meeting, everyone can briefly present their book to the group and share what they have learned.  A one-page summary handout would be appreciated, but is not required. 

     This is an opportunity to expand your knowledge about couples interventions.  We will also learn from each other's book selections.  Happy Reading!

    If you have questions about the Book Group, contact either Betsy McBride, LMFT at or Jennifer Birner at
