Dysfunctional, repeated behavior in marriage is often a misguided attempt at intimacy and growth. Couples use each other to unconsciously dramatize unresolved childhood experiences in attempts to bring them to light and resolve them. When these efforts become stuck, repetitive and painful, they can destroy a marriage. If they can be brought to light in marital therapy, they can become part of a more playful, creative relationship.
This seminar will begin with an overview of how an understanding of the therapy relationship can be applied to the treatment of couples. The seminar will cover the diagnosis of relationship problems; basic concepts in differentiating relationship pathology from individual pathology; and basic issues in determining the treatment of choice between individual or conjoint approaches to treatment. Using clinical material, the seminar will demonstrate how to conduct a diagnostic evaluation and how to structure a couple’s treatment.
