Psychotherapy with couples offers the potential for considerable growth for the relationship, the individuals involved, and others in their lives, including children and families of origin. Psychoanalytic perspectives, in particular, help us to consider and make use of the experiences between the members of the couple. In this course, we will examine some of the central concepts of psychoanalytically informed couples work and apply them to issues couples often present with, including communication, conflict, sexuality, parenting, money, and the tension of intimacy vs. autonomy.
