NP006 Couples Therapy: Today and Tomorrow
NP006, Couples, 3, Harville Hendrix
Thank you for a fascinating discussion of your IMAGO approach to couples therapy. Two questions came to mind as I considered the foundational tools you describe as central to the dialogue: 1.Does the therapist facilitate the use of those techniques (mirroring, validation, empathy) by first demonstrating an example of their use or by deliberately guiding the direction of the response?
2. Might "empathy" be a tool used before "validation" since,in some cases, it might be easier for someone to be able to "validate" a partner's stated need by first attempting to "empathize" those feelings that led the partner to have that need?
