What to expect.
The couple’s therapist will begin treatment with some standard interview questions about the history of the relationship so that they can get some insight into the dynamics of the relationship and what problems might be coming up. The therapist will also dive deeply into each partner’s values, goals, and cultural background. They will then help the couple identify the issue that treatment will focus on and establish treatment goals.
During treatment, the therapist will help the couple gain insight into the relationship dynamics that are creating issues and help both partners understand their roles in negative interactions and arguments. By understanding their relationship better, the couple can change the way they think about their relationship and each other. Another important aspect of couple’s therapy is altering the negative behaviors that can lead to disagreements and tension in the relationship. Couples therapists often assign the partners homework to apply the skills they have learned in therapy to their day-to-day interactions.
