Madeleine Cocozza lectures in the couples relationship

Family Building – the lecture that helps you build a family! The functions, challenges, and care of the couple relationship - how can you as a professional help couples towards change when dilemmas arise?

The lecture is based on the theory and practice of designing the family system as presented in the book “Family Life – On Close Relationships.”

During the lecture, the entire family system is initially highlighted to then focus on the couple relationship. The lecture is aimed at professionals working with family therapy and couple relationships. It presents theoretical and practical tools for reflecting on functions in the couple relationship and helping the couple change their relationship.
