the Brief Couple Therapy : Why
In a couple, an inhibition or obstruction of communication generates co-dependant behaviours : the attitude of the partners oscillates between the poles of dependency & counter-dependency, instead of finding some balance thanks to constructive & progressive principles of interdependence & complementarity.
Consequently, the partners stick to roles often interchangeable, such as that of the Persecutor, the Victim & the Saviour, and rigid relationship scenarios get under way. This further stirs the mechanisms of mutual incomprehension, frustration & opposition within the couple.
Disagreement & conflict originate from several & sometimes simultaneous causes :
- misunderstandings due to a lack of communication, or a communication defect
- the wish to keep the side benefits of the stagnating situation
- a taste for power & control, struggle for influence
- projection, generalization & prejudice
- force of habit & the fear of the unknown
- negative doubt & destructive criticism
- accusation, namely looking for a culprit instead of searching for the heart of the problem
- avoidance behaviour through laxness & non-accountability
Brief Couple Therapy aims to draw up an unbiased inventory of the relationship, to devise methods to settle conflicts & to create a shared vision, in order to reach an understanding & a reconciliation.
This therapeutic dynamic helps to dissolve anxiety, to release oneself from anger & to defuse aggressiveness within the relationship by stimulating the partners’ constructive confrontation, strengthening the ability to take into account each other’s point of view, sensibility & values, and as a consequence by generating a mutual improvement & transformation of each other’s behaviour.
To stop the vicious circle of dissension & to restore the spirit of common good, in fact, it’s essential to share moments of cooperation & mutual aid again, while at the same time empowering & emancipating each other …
As a result, this joint adventure encourages authenticity & sincerity, reinforces trust & renews creativity in the romantic relationship !
