Couples Therapy Stages

The treatment of a couple goes through several stages. Couples vary in their motivation for treatment, how long they’ve been together, how much hurt there is, and what style of conflict they developed over time. These variables affect the way the couples go through the stages. Often, couples regress and need to cycle back to the initial stage. Sometimes, couples move through the stages several times before solidifying their gains. Not all couples in treatment make it to the second or third stage. Many couples disengage from treatment after the first stage. And sometimes couples return months or years later, to check in, to deal with another crisis, or finish unfinished work.
