The Anatomy of Intimacy Workshops, in collaboration with the UCI Department of Psychiatry and Human Behavior, offer an annual series of continuing education programs in couples and family therapy designed to give you skills you can use immediately in your practice.


Offered during the academic year, our workshops are based on the most current leading edge research and treatment methods. The invited faculty are among the most respected in the profession from around the world, presenting cutting edge clinical approaches to the California mental health community.


These one or two day programs focus on one main topic or the work of one particular expert in couples or family therapy. There is a big emphasis in each workshop on integrating theory with clinical practice so we require that each presenter show videotapes or do simulations to demonstrate their work

Some examples of our distinguished speakers:

      Susan Johnson, John Gottman, Daniel Siegel, Ellyn Bader, Esther Perel, Janis Spring, Terry Real,

      Stan Tatkin, Harville Hendrix, Barry McCarthy, Pepper Schwartz, Stephen Porges, 

      Helen Fisher, Tammy Nelson, Margaret Nichols, Bessel van der Kolk, Bill Doherty


The Foundation is an approved provider of the American Psychological Association [APA] and formerly a provider of the Board of Behavioral Sciences which now accepts APA programs for credit.

Foundation for the Contemporary Family  is approved by the American Psychological Association to sponsor continuing education for psychologists. Foundation for the Contemporary Family maintains responsibility for this program and its content.
