Therapists sometimes get stuck trying to change a couple's interactional patterns without understanding the underlying belief systems that maintain the patterns. By zeroing in on the core beliefs and expectations of each partner, the therapist is able to address multiple levels of experience and help the couple change pivotal aspects of their relationship in a short period of time. Conflicting beliefs around money, sex, power, gender, responsibility and intimacy will be examined within this therapeutic framework. Videotapes excerpts will demonstrate different ways of changing constraining beliefs to those that enrich the relationship.

Educational Objectives:

  1. To describe two methods for uncovering the beliefs and expectations underlying destructive interactional patterns.
  2. To describe two different ways of changing constraining beliefs to those that enhance the relationship.
