January 2016, by Julie MandarinoHuman beings are social animals. Much of the joy and struggles in our lives comes from our connections and interactions with other people. When any two people form a bond, especially our primary romantic bonds, they create a third entity, their relationship.
Just as each person has shadows, each relationship has shadows. Each partnership has its own, often unspoken, rules about what is and isn't allowed to be. Each relationship has things it hides, represses, denies and projects onto others.
Traditional Shadow Work® approaches people as individuals. It addresses individual shadows. But we are more than just individuals. We are also individuals-in-relationship. Until recently there hasn't been any way within the Shadow Work structure to address our relationships and our relationship shadows. That has now changed.
With the encouragement and support of Cliff Barry, Shadow Work® founder, a group of facilitators has been meeting every year for the past several years to develop ways for working with couples. Out of these meetings, a new Shadow Work certification program has been developed. This program integrates the Shadow Work Model with the mainstream field of relationship education to produce a unique approach for coaching couples.
The only prerequisite for beginning the program is completion of the Shadow Work Basic Facilitator Training. To become certified as a Shadow Work Couples' Coach, however, it is necessary to be a certified Shadow Work Coach (for individuals).
The Couples' Coaching program has two main parts: an educational component that provides the basic knowledge of couples' dynamics and skills for working with them, and a practicum that involves coaching couples with the supervision of a certified mentor.
The educational component is the entry point for the program. The first couples' coaching training will be offered by Joe and Julie Mandarino in Fairfield, Iowa, from May 12-15, 2016. This four-day training is designed for those who are pursuing certification as a Shadow Work Couples Coach, but it can also be taken as a standalone course for those who are simply interested in learning more about couples' dynamics and how to work with them. For more information about this course, please see the Calendar of Events at ShadowWork.com..
