This brief therapy approach works with any therapeutic perspective to provide new tools for helping couples move beyond fighting. Utilizing resources couples naturally posses, this approach helps couples return to a state of being in love, and offer tools that can help them return there at will.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Explain the ways that spontaneous trance produces fights and arguments, and ways to alter that dynamic.
  2. Describe ways to help couples recapture that “in love” feeling.
