At times, individual therapy appears to be simply a conversation between two people. In fact, those conversations are shaped by the goals we set at the beginning of treatment, as well as by the learning style of the client. We’ll combine the basic “talking cure” with other appropriate approaches that address the multiple aspects of every problem: behaviors, attitudes, emotions, and physical symptoms. Clients who are willing to practice their new skills and behaviors between sessions will find their progress accelerates, and their time in treatment is shorter.
Relationships are hard. Occasional tune-ups can keep partners’ connection to each other in working order. And when problems have reached a crisis point, committing to a period of regular joint work can help the couple to grow past their stuck point. In couple’s therapy, partners examine behaviors and learn to process emotions as well as improve and practice skills like constructive conflict and communication.
