As a relationship and divorce coach in Monsey, NY, I work with individuals, couples, and families in the Orthodox Jewish community who are struggling with marital and relationship issues.
CDC Certified Divorce Coach
To become certified by the CDC Board of Standards, I had to complete the study, training, and coach practicum through the CDC College of Divorce Coaching.
My training included taking ICF Standard classes for CCE Approval taught by qualified instructors. I also learned how to adhere to a code of ethics and received coaching both from CDC Mentors and peers, as well as undergoing in-depth discussions and debriefs.
CDC Certified Divorce Coaches learn:
- Proven Coaching Techniques
To maintain my certification, I have engaged in CCE (continuing coach education), taking additional coursework regularly to enhance my ability to help my clients and keep up-to-date with the latest practices.
Gottman Institute Clinical Training
Clinical training through the Gottman Institute (Levels 1 and 2), provided me with insight into how to help couples manage conflicts, increase intimacy, and minimize future issues using tools and strategies based on extensive research.
I learned how to intervene effectively and encourage communication between partners by showing them how their values, history, and subconscious dreams may be causing some of their most serious issues, as well as how to process fights in a way that is productive and allows them to assess their Friendship Profile, Conflict Profile, and Shared Meanings Profile.
- Some interventions used are :
- How to battle relationship cancers like the “Four Horsemen” (Learn more here.)
- Help couples create rituals of connection
- Help couples create a shared system of meaning and values
- Soothe “physiological flooding”
- Change couples’ “Attack/Defend System” to improve interactions
Michele Weiner-Davis – Divorce Busting Intensive Workshop for Professionals
Michele Weiner-Davis’s workshop helps coaches and marriage counselors work with couples who are trying to grapple with the most serious issues, such as infidelity and addiction.
I learned how to pull couples back from the brink with tried-and-true methods that offer hope to those who have given up, inspire spouses who are already “out the door,” and even help people who are already separated or in the process of getting divorced.
These techniques have been tested by Michele Weiner-Davis over her 30+ years of working with couples.
