Working with Couples: The Jazz Consultation

What happens when you introduce jazz musicians to a couple’s therapy session? What does harmony and dissonance in music have to do with couples, especially couples in distress? What makes a couple “swing”? The Jazz Consultation will show us how jazz musicians, as official “consultants” to a couple therapy session, expand the boundaries of traditional therapy, with fascinating results. In this workshop participants will watch a DVD of a jazz consultation, to see what happens when the music of jazz meets the “music” of couple therapy and how the introduction of jazz music opens up new dimensions in understanding therapy, as well as the "self" of the therapist.

Amy Begel, LCSW, LMFT, the creator of The Jazz Consultation, was trained by Dr. Salvador Minuchin in the mid 1980’s, and went on to become a senior faculty member at The Minuchin Center for The Family in New York until its closing in 2011. She is currently on the faculty of the Department of Family Medicine at the Institute for Family Health at Mt. Sinai Medical Center in New York. She maintains a private practice in couple and family therapy, and teaches and consults nationally and internationally. She has published numerous articles and currently co-authors the blog Relationship Rhythms with David Keith, MD.
