Angry Women, Withdrawn Men

 

Breaking Through in Couples Therapy

If you’ve ever worked with a couple, you know the palpable tension of a first session. There’s the fed-up wife and the husband who’s reluctantly agreed to come to therapy.

In the clip below, Jette Simon, a Senior Clinical Instructor in Imago Therapy, offers a step-by-step account of how she goes about creating a safe therapeutic space for both partners—despite their history and conflicts—and begins to engage them in a process of change.



To read more about the challenging work of couples therapy and how we can become more prepared to work with couples in session, see our November/December 2011 issue on couples therapy here.


Jette Simon, Lic., who conducts basic and advanced training programs in Imago Relationship Therapy, is the director of the Washington, D.C. Institute for Couples Therapy, and is a Senior Clinical Instructor for Imago International. She’s the author of Imago: The Therapy of Love.
