Couples Therapy is for couples who are in a relationship, married or not. It is often referred to as marriage counseling. People struggling with relationship problems argue over trifles, exchange barbed endearments, sulk, and rage. Partners are viewed as sadomasochistic, symbiotic, exploitive, narcissistic, dependent, immature, controlling, deceitful, toxic, double binding, manipulative, and as colluding, having hidden agendas, being dishonest, or playing games.
The goal of Couples Therapy is to exclude irrationality from relationships and to eliminate problems and to improve the couple's relationship. This type of therapy can also help couples decide whether or not they should continue staying together. Although the focus of Couples Therapy is on the couple, there are times when the individual psychological issues of one or both parties need to be addressed. Partners are encouraged to renounce their unreasonable demands, uncontrolled fighting, and fantasy based expectations and to negotiate and compromise.
Couples Therapy often includes sessions designed to improve problem solving, build communication skills, and identify life goals and relationship responsibilities. Other common issues include infidelity, financial problems, illness and other life changes, and anger. Depending on the level of distress in the relationship, therapy can be short term or over a period of several months. Ideal for counsellors and social workers.
