PET-C Level 1 Registration 

The Couples Research Institute
Geneva, Illinois

As a PET-C Level 1 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 each week will average between 2 and 4 hours). At the end of each week you will have the option of meeting live with Dr. Atkinson via Zoom in order to ask questions relevant to the teaching videos assigned that week and interact with Dr. Atkinson as he answers questions. These live interactive sessions with Dr. Atkinson will be reserved exclusively for those who are able to watch the assigned teaching videos for the week and come ready to ask specific questions. 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). (Note: You don’t need to wait to begin viewing the PET-C training videos until the next scheduled live interactive sessions. You will have access to all of the training videos for each Level as soon as you register.)
