In the old way of thinking, stressed couples were depicted as a failed communication system of interacting pathologies that could be improved by therapists dispensing conflict resolution skills. In the new way of thinking, couples are the source of mutual healing and the fulcrum for social transformation. This lecture will discuss how that shift occurred and its implications, not only for the happiness of couples, but for the relational well-being of society.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Discuss the historical shift of perspective on couples.
  2. Describe the impact of healthy couples on society.
  3. Teach the concept of “mutual healing” of couples.
