Title: Principles of Effective Couple’s Therapy -

Principles of Effective Couples Therapy

  • There are many basic principles of effective
    couples therapy. Some of these principles
    include the change of relationship views,
    modification of dysfunctional behavior, decreases
    emotional avoidance, improvement of communication
    and promotion of strength.

  • 1. Change of relationship Views
  • Throughout the therapeutic process, the
    therapist helps both partners to see their
    relationship in a more objective manner. The
    process begins after the therapists collects data
    on the interaction between both partners.
    Different therapists use different strategies to
    focus on altering the way the relationship is

  • 2. Modification of dysfunctional behavior
  • An effective couples therapist will attempt
    to change the way partners behave with each
    other. Therapists should ensure that their
    clients are not engaging themselves in actions
    that can cause psychological, physical or
    economic harm. To achieve this, therapist should
    conduct an assessment in order to determine
    whether their clients are at risk.
  • 3. Decreases emotional avoidance
  • It is very important to understand that
    couples who avoid the expression of private
    feelings put themselves at higher risk of
    becoming emotionally distance thus growing apart
    from each other.

  • 4. Improves communication and promotes strength
  • Effective couples therapies focus on helping
    both partners to communicate effectively. The
    communication should not be abusive and the
    partners should not ridicule each other
    especially when they are expressing their
    feelings. The therapist may provide instructions
    to the couple with the aim of helping them
    understand the type of communication that will
    cause more conflicts and the type of
    communication which is effective. The couple will
    also get a chance to learn more empathically and
    actively. An effective therapist will point out
    the strengths in the relationship and will try to
    build resilience. The main point of promoting
    strength in a relationship is to help the
    partners enjoy their relationship.
