LECTURE 2 : HOW TO MAKE COUPLE COUNSELING WORK

A TEMPERATURE CHECK- therapist should request is “Tell me the story of how you met.” The response will tell you volumes about the status of the couple’s relationship.

A BASE OF RESPECT AND TRUST- many couples will have an eroded base of respect and trust for each other.Building love and respect is difficult for couples, especially for those who have experienced affairs or other serious lies or serious arguments.The techniques used in Imago Relationship therapy which we will be talking late ron in the coming videos will help the couple to move toward regaining the trust and respect they may once had in the relationship by allowing them to vent the frustration and be heard by the partner in an empathic manner.

BASIC COUPLES SKILLS- Four important measures couples can take to establish themselves as a couple and maintain their love and respect for each other:
1. Develop a communication pattern in which you empathically listen, make clear requests, and give supportive feedback.
2. Identify conflicts and difficulties, discuss alternatives, problem solve, and reach viable agreements.
3. Share emotional and sexual intimacy so your bond is nurtured and energized.
4. Enjoy each other, share activities and your lives.
