Couples Counseling: Re-Establishing Balance and Equity (Ce ARTICLE: 1 CE Credit)

Abstract There are many reasons couples come to feel discouraged, depressed, angry, and even demoralized about their relationship. When some mates perceive that they are not receiving sufficient equity (equal ratio of input to outcome) from their partners, they attribute negative motives of intentions, i.e., “my partner is deliberately shortchanging me.” There are those who give up on pursuing the idea of equity and instead become totally absorbed in their own lives and interests. This paper discusses interventions that can help couples to restore equity while preventing negative interactional sequences from derailing the relationship. The case illustration demonstrates how counselors can assist couples to become more attuned to the relative fairness of the “give and take” exchange within their relationship.
