Moving from conflict to emotional intimacy is a type of couple therapy that allows each partner to feel comfortable in the session. The object is to develop a deeper understanding of one another rather than argue about surface issues. This work gets away from blame, judgment, and criticism. An environment that is safe and nonjudgmental allows for couples to express themselves and to discover more about the other. We start by discussing the differences in people, biology, family, cultures, trauma. We discuss the triggers each of the couples has and where they have come from. Giving the other a chance to see how they may trigger the other without knowing. We work on strategies of working on the anger individually so the couple can come back and talk through the problems. We also discuss the imperfections in partners and how that is for each member. Other issues explored are couple dynamics, unmet needs, sexuality always homering each parsons feelings. We also work on empathy ,acceptance, communication and work on unmet needs such as sexuality so the couple can move closer together in certain areas.
