EMDR as an enhancer of couple therapy
In the protocol of the relational-systemic approach with couples, some overlaps are already present in the EMDR line of thought: we analyze deeply personal histories, focusing on the positive and negative events in the couple’s life, underlining the positive resources of each partner and of the couple as a whole, and analyzing the discomfort and the conditions that deliver it. The beginning of the work with EMDR has permitted to check which are the partner’s often unaware behaviours that triggered the onset of the discomfort. It also underlined each dysfunctional partner’s behaviour within the couple.
