Childhood relational experiences and adverse events greatly influence adult relational strategies. When working with couples, especially highly reactive and conflictive ones, precisely the most difficult to treat with standard couple therapy, having an attachment informed therapeutic approach can be of great help.

In this workshop we will outline a conceptual framework from which to integrate attachment and other affective systems into couple therapy. We shall analyse what adjustments need to be made in the assessment and intervention with these couples. We will also provide intervention strategies to maximize work with them and how and when to introduce these interventions with couples who, initially, are not in therapy to work on their past, but on their present relational conflicts.

Learning Objectives

  1. Participants will be provided with a conceptual framework from which to integrate attachment and other affective systems into couples therapy, including aspects to consider in the assessment and intervention phases, leading to a comprehensive way of working in couples therapy.
  2. Participants will learn specific interventions that enhance couple therapy, especially for highly reactive and conflictive ones.
  3. Participants will learn how to identify the most common pitfalls and mistakes made when doing this type of couple work and how to identify and avoid them, helping to adjust treatment plans in the context of each therapeutic relationship.
