Positive Communication in Relationships
You are a couple’s therapist who happens to be Black. You are seeing a couple for trust issues and meeting with one member of the couple for individual therapy.
The other partner, is also Black. He or she is very jealous, and during the course of your work has admitted to having had an ongoing affair but says it has ended.
Your goal with the couple has been to improve communication. Your goal with the individual work is to provide additional support and specific skills tailored for each partner.
As therapist, what skills would you suggest in this situation to improve communication?
