Couples Therapy: Influence from an Intersubjective lens - The author redefines the analytic style adopted in couples therapy and in group therapy in light of self psychology, intersubjectivity perspective, relational psychoanalysis, neuropsychology, attachment theory, motivational systems theory and of social constructivism. With this synthesis emerges a theoretical eclecticism which is coherent and finally free from the obligation of adhering to a unique point of view. This allows maximum freedom to the therapist. In Segalla’s work, the couple appears to be a therapeutic challenge more difficult and with greater risks compared to more traditional couple settings. In the face of the greater complexity and unpredictability of multiple settings (in our case the trio constituted by the couple and the therapist) the author suggests, also by a clinical example, the use, besides that of the analyst and his/her own history, of theoretical grids more articulated, less one-sided, and more adapted to comprehend the therapeutic contexts of the couple.
