This brief model has a powerful effect on couples. Misleading in its simplicity but potent in its outcome, the Three C’s approach uses the couples’ own words to design and realign the relationship in a strategic manner. Lecture, live demonstration, experiential exercise and discussion will be used for meaningful exchange.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Describe the treatment plan for an individual couples’ session based upon the presenting problem.
  2. List two hypotheses from the client’s presenting problem that relate to causality.
  3. List two common defense mechanisms couples use which could be classified as causality.
