This book focuses on the link between the childhood attachment injury of each of the couple and the later repetition of that wound within the marital conflict. We use verbatim case transcripts as our primary data.
Of many possible couples therapy paths, which one to follow? This introduction outlines the unique complications of couples psychotherapy. How do you treat two people simultaneously? What role does the past of each client play in the treatment? How do you construct a working model to guide the therapy as the treatment connects the original object relations conflict of each, to the present marriage?
