Emotionally-Focused Couple Therapy

See attachments.

1. The results of the pilot study comparing pharmacotherapy and EFCT for depressed women with concurrent relationship distress (Dessaulles, Johnson, & Denton, 2003) raised interesting questions about the possible effectiveness of couple therapy for what are typically seen as individual problems. As a counsellor, how might you assess an individual client to determine whether couple (or family) therapy might in fact be equally effective, or more effective?

2. If you thought it might make sense to change the case to a couple/family case, how might you speak to the client about this? How might you make the transition from an individual case to a couple/family case?

3. Finally, speculate about how might you speak to the other member of the couple (or to the other members of the family) in the first conjoint session, to minimize the effect of your having already had one individual session with the initial client?
