The Importance of Being Evidence Based

- Raises the profile of RLT
- Allows for inclusion in APA education and clinical training programs, which would greatly increase exposure
- Paves the way for funding for further research and dissemination of the RLT model

Initial Undertakings

Increase RLT 's Profile with a Wider Audience

We are in the process of publishing an academic article to illustrate the theory and rationale that forms the foundation of RLT. This will help pave the way for publication of a research study.

Advising on the writing of an RLT Treatment Manual

The existence of such a manual makes it possible for instructors to teach the model in multi-method courses, and for future researchers to easily design controlled research projects.

Study A (Therapist Training Outcome Research):

Pilot Study is Complete
Designed and ran a pilot study to look at RLT trainees as they attend a new Level Two course taught by Terry Real. This study provided us with valuable demographic data regarding the nature of the participants, along with pointers about what additions might need to be made to the training. This study also placed us in a position of confidence to proceed with a large scale study as participants are available who are new to RLT.

Study B (Therapy Outcome Research):

Literature Review is Complete
Currently advising Relational Life Institute in restructuring training program in preparation to conduct research with highly consistent outcomes.


We are seeking a student collaborator for Qualitative Research Study

RESEARCH CONSENT FORM

Quantitative Study of the Experience of Attending RLT Training

This study is designed to assess the impact of attending on-line RLT training with Terry Real. Participation is entirely voluntary, and separate from the training process itself. If you press the consent button below, you will be taken to the survey, and you can leave it at any time.Your responses will be identified by number only (a number you choose), and as such all responses are entirely anonymous. Data will be kept for seven years following publication, in a file on dropbox, accessible by the researchers only.It is our intention to write up the results of the study and submit them for publication as part of our mission to raise the profile of RLT and work towards being evidence-based. When the results are ready, there will be a link to them on both the RLI and the RLF websites.

If you have any complaints about the research at any point you are welcome to contact Relational Life Foundation Executive Director, Sarah Oswald (sarah@relationallife.com).

Seeking Student Collaborator for Qualitative Research Study

(An ideal thesis topic for anyone interested in couples therapy)

The Relational Life Therapy (RLT) model is used by many marital therapists and is becoming increasingly popular. This model includes a two-day workshop called The Essential Skills of Relationships. In this workshop facilitators teach participants the main ingredients of the RLT model, including the importance of self-regulation, losing and winning strategies, communication and negotiation methods, and techniques for cherishing a partner and a relationship. There are also opportunities in the workshop to practice some of these skills.The Relational Life Foundation, a non-profit organization, has formed a committee dedicated to researching the effectiveness of RLT. We wish to interview past participants of the workshop to determine:
- Whether they understand the concepts they are being taught
- Whether they incorporate the concepts into their relationships
- Whether they believe they have benefitted from the workshop, and if so, in what ways
Our hope is that this information will help us better understand the experience of participating in this workshop, including whether there is significant variation in participants’ experiences. This may help facilitators tailor their teaching and interventions.Our plan is for a qualitative study, where we will interview 10 participants (who all attended the same workshop) with open-ended questions, and then apply a Thematic Analysis.We will draw on the psychology literature for previous studies evaluating experiential workshop participation, as well as for guidance on using Thematic Analysis. We expect to complete an academic article we can submit for publication. This research will follow all APA ethical guidelines for research with human participants.

Are you a psychologist with war trauma experience?

Psychologists with war trauma experience may be of great help to the Ukrainian colleagues by offering advice, guidance and moral support. If you wish to donate your time to help, please read the following note from Dmitry Garyushkin, President of Ukrainian Neuropsychological Association and Director of the Center of Neuropsychology and Neurorehabilitation "Neuro Brain Boost."

Dear colleagues,
My name is Dmitry Garyushkin, I am President of Ukrainian Neuropsychological Association and Director, Center of Neuropsychology and Neurorehabilitation "Neuro Brain Boost." It so happened that we in Ukraine are in a state of war with Russia, and nobody expected such treachery from the Russian Federation. Many city residents are still unable to evacuate and are in a most precarious situation; there are many casualties among the peaceful population; many witness death every day, and this is not something one can get used to.
Therefore we are asking you to help us with crisis psychology, to offer guidance to Ukrainian psychologists. Unfortunately we don't have relevant experience, many local psychologists want to help but don't know how to do it correctly and not to make things worse. It is essential to provide help now. People are huddled in bunkers and basements, and even those who escaped to safety cannot find a peace of mind. Many suffer from psychological breakdowns and make rash decisions, which may cost them their lives.Therefore we are asking for your help, thank you for your cooperation.Psychologists with war trauma experience may be of great help to the Ukrainians even if they don't speak Ukrainian or Russian. While they may not be able to provide direct counseling services to the general population, they may be able to offer valuable advice and guidance to Ukrainian colleagues. And moral support from colleagues is invaluable in and of itself. In my experience many Ukrainian professionals speak decent English, even if the general population does not.

Please contact Dr. Dmitriy Garyushkin at: neyro.lab@ukr.net

Part of our mission is to support the network of RLT practitioners in honing their skills, connecting with each other and bringing RLT to new and diverse audiences!

Based on your feedback, we're excited to offer the following opportunities for Certified RLT Practitioners:
