PET-C Level 1 Registration 

The Couples Research Institute
Geneva, Illinois

As a PET-C training participant, you will watch videos of Dr. Atkinson teaching every step and nuance of the Mutual Disarmament Component of Pragmatic/Experiential Therapy for Couples. These teaching videos draw on live presentations Dr. Atkinson has given along with studio recordings and Dr. Atkinson’s therapy sessions in which he demonstrates specific PET-C methods and interventions. Every week you will be assigned videos to watch at whatever times are convenient for you (The total length of viewing time every week will average between 2 and 4 hours). At the end of each week you will meet live with Dr. Atkinson via Zoom in order to ask questions, seek clarification, and interact with Dr. Atkinson as he summarizes the most important things he hopes that you are taking away from the teaching videos. Each live discussion will be recorded so that if a participant is unable to attend, they can watch later. Here are the dates of the Level 1 live discussions with Dr. Atkinson in the next Level 1 training (Live discussions will occur from 11 AM – 12:30 PM Central Time each day):
