Do you find yourself challenged by clients whom you can’t seem to move to make progress out of their pain, conflict or betrayal?
All of us have had this experience despite our best efforts.
What we’ve learned is that teaching clients how to be Self-Intimate and Conflict-Intimate (two of the Three Intimacies) motivates them to both face their distress and define clear personal and relationship goals as well as providing concrete ways to move past their old “stuck spots”.
Are you overwhelmed with the intensity of couples dealing with affairs?
Infidelity is one of the most personally challenging issues a therapist faces, and it is the number one reason couples seek therapy.
Using the model of the Three Infidelities to determine the type of affair effectively assists the therapist in knowing how to best help both the betrayed and betrayer. Using the TRI developmental approach and teaching the Three Intimacies to clients equips the therapist with concrete tools and a clear way to understand the couple’s stuck spots. The therapist then is able to target these areas effectively to give the couple skills and hope two things they desperately need in order to do the hard work required of each of them.
