Couples say they want better communication often without having the developmental capacities to bring about what they so desperately desire. The Initiator-Inquirer Process can be used to increase clients' capacity for empathy, self-definition and giving when it is not convenient.

Learning Objectives

  1. Delineate 2 roles that increase communication when couples are emotionally triggered.

  2. Demonstrate how to support partners in effectively initiating a topic that matters to them

  3. Review the continuum of empathy development
