D-EIS/MIM Training – Working with Families & Couples (Advanced Live online)


Models that look only at the effects of social interaction patterns in father-child or mother-child dyads are inadequate for understanding the impact of interaction patterns on the whole family system. The family systems’ view provides a coherent foundation and framework for such efforts. Family therapy theories all agree that the dynamic organisation and interactive relations between family members, including co-parenting skills of the parents, even trans-generationally, may critically influence the individual’s well-being.

Couple romantic distress co-varies with individual emotional and behavioural disorders. The effect of couple distress—particularly negative communication—is not confined to the adult partners. Even when the effects are mediated through co-parenting skills and parenting alliance as suggested above, the couple’s interactive style cannot be totally dismissed when working clinically with families.

The aim of the Advanced MIM training is to broaden the traditional focus of the MIM observations…..the Parent-Child dyad, to look at the family system including co-parenting as well as to give an insight into the dynamics of the couple relationship. To observe clinical video examples of Family and Couples MIM’s along with examples with RVF (Reflective Video Feedback) will be given, as well as qualitative and quantitative (Family MIM) assessment examples.



The learning objectives of the 2-day training are:

  • How to apply the MIM with families and adult couples
  • How to understand and assess (score/qualitative assessment) family and couples MIM observations?
  • Case examples, theoretical and practical considerations



This training is designed for Therapists/Clinicians who have undertaken Theraplay training or the Basic MIM/D-EIS (Dyadic Emotional Interaction Style) Scoring course.
