Frequently Asked Questions Regarding Couples' Therapy
How long will couples therapy take?
At the Portland Relationship Institute, specific goals are set at the beginning of therapy, and couples are expected to do homework to establish healthy relationship patterns and practices in their daily lives. Because of this, therapy or counseling is usually time-limited and ends when your relationship goals have been met. Of course there are some more complex situations which require a series of goals and resolutions that take place sequentially over time. All of this can be discussed and clarified during the initial evaluation session with the therapist. Because we have specialized in relationship issues for over twenty years, we have almost certainly dealt with any relationship or couples' issues you may have.
How do you choose an effective
The unfortunate fact is that many psychotherapists perform Couples' Therapy who have not been trained to do so. We have found through experience and research that the most effective couples' therapy combines skill-building with feedback and insight on communication patterns and processes, along with regular homework assignments. Couples' sessions where the therapists merely referee arguments tends to not produce any long-lasting changes in relationship patterns. So when you're choosing a couples' therapist, be sure to ask them how active and directive they are in their sessions. Finally, you should also ask your therapist how many couples' or marriage counseling sessions they do every week. If it's less than 5-10, they are doing couples' therapy as a minor sidelight, not as a main thrust of their practice and they may not be as experienced in working with this modality.
