Creating Intimate Connections

February 3, 2023 @ 7:30 pm - February 5, 2023 @ 5:00 pm

With Dori Middleman, MD, Mark Putnam, MD and Intissar BenHalim, LCSW

In this workshop, we are continuing the “Mariah Method” with the importance of healthy relationships as a foundation for living a healthy life.
“My approach is experiential, and supports my belief that as people are damaged by experience, so are they healed by experience. To this end, all my clients participate physically, emotionally, intellectually and spiritually in their own healing process. The organism of each client holds the secret to what it needs, and what is enough.” – Mariah Fenton Gladis 1948 – 2018

Cost: $595 for individual working space, $475 for group space, and $300 for students and alums of our Center. Healthy meals and snacks are provided.

Reservations: Please indicate whether you want an individual or a group spot. There are also a limited number of overnight accommodations available for the weekend, double-occupancy.

Sometimes feel disconnected from family, friends and loved ones, cast out, alone?

What you are really feeling is a threat to your emotional safety, cut off from any connections and vulnerable to isolation, illness, divorce and career failure. If you like to create positive change in your relationships with family, friends, lovers, and partners, then join us in this workshop and increase your Partner-ability! This workshop is for individuals or couples.

At this workshop you will learn to:

  • Understand how early attachments have shaped your relationships for better or worse
  • Deepen your understanding of the dynamics of successful relating
  • Learn keys to creating successful relationships
  • Practice risking positive action with others in a safe environment
  • Assess your abilities and disabilities and deepen your relationship skills and capacity to love.

It’s an exciting opportunity for an ongoing professional and personal growth process supervised by master practitioners, Dori Middleman, MD, Mark Putnam, MD and Intissar BenHalim, LCSW.

CEUs: This program has been approved by the Pennsylvania State Board of Social Workers, Marriage and Family Therapists and Professional Counselors for 21 contact hours of continuing education toward licensure renewal.
