The work of therapy, in my view, is to build a bridge of empathy between partners, to allow each to see the other as he or she is – flawed but vulnerable, self-protective but eager for true connection and love. This is very challenging work for many couples, who may have solidified a harsh set of judgments about each other in order to defend themselves from pain. Yet it is among the most rewarding experiences a therapist can have - to see a couple deeply connected and loving again, after years of unhappiness together.


Good therapy with families has this advantage over individual therapy in clearing up life’s problems: psychotherapists have a greater capacity to instigate change and growth by shaking up the old patterns that hold the dysfunctional belief systems in place.
