Excerpt

Marital or couples therapy can be defined as a format of intervention involving both members of a dyad, in which the focus of intervention is the problematic interactional patterns of the couple. The focus of couples therapy is on the dyad and its intimate emotional and sexual aspects. In this chapter, we use marital therapy and couples therapy interchangeably, as the majority of the issues are the same. A couple may represent man–woman, man–man, or woman–woman relationships.
