Join Hedy Schleifer in this interview as she presents what she calls the “unraveling of the survival knot” in the developmental growth journey of a couple. The “survival knot” is the principle “stuck place” of couples, the unconscious and yet essential agenda embedded in the problem with which they appear in the office of a couples therapist. The “survival knot” is what couples experience as their impasse issue, where one person’s anguished desperation meets the other person’s dogged resistance, and vice versa. In this interview Hedy reveals the roadmap for entering the most treacherous territory of a couple’s relationship, while taking a structured and coherent step-by-step journey.
