An Integrative Approach to Couple Therapy: Altering the Treatment Modality to Resolve an Impasse

Barbara R. Cohn

In this article the author demonstrates an integrative approach to couple therapy in order to resolve a treatment impasse. The systematic alternation of individual and couple sessions was introduced into an ongoing couple treatment. This change in treatment modality enabled necessary work on the self systems of members of the couple which in turn improved the couple relationship. The author uses an understanding of object relations, self psychology, and systems thinking both to explore the dynamics of the couple and to explain why the restructuring of the treatment was useful.
