What Is Couples Therapy?
A focus on a specific problem (i.e. sexual difficulties, Internet addiction, intimacy, jealousy) Active participation on the part of the therapist in treating the relationship itself, rather than each individual separately. Solution-focused, change-oriented interventions early on in treatment. A clear establishment of treatment objectives. Research conducted by the American Association of Marriage and Family concluded that over 97% of surveyed couples got the help they needed from couples therapy. In addition, 93% of couples said therapy gave them more effective tools for dealing with conflict.
