Description

In Enhanced Cognitive–Behavioral Couple Therapy, Dr. Donald H. Baucom demonstrates this approach to working with couples coping with relationship difficulties. Although regular cognitive–behavioral therapy has been useful in working with couples, it has largely neglected the broader patterns and core themes in intimate relationships, such as differences in needs for intimacy. In addition to focusing on a couple's interactive processes, enhanced cognitive–behavioral therapy attends to the two unique individuals, including all that each partner brings to the relationship, as well as to the context in which the relationship exists.

In this session, Dr. Baucom works with a couple who have a history of resistance to vulnerability, helping them to learn to open up and truly listen to each other.
