"A River Runs Through It": Navigating Couples Treatment from A Self And Interactive Regulation - Approach, by Jacqueline Gotthold The author compares the couple’s journey to the incredible and changing currents of a river. First it is rough, then it is slow and majestic; its flow shows the phases of expression, narration, articulation and change of the couple in therapy. Given that all relations are supposedly co-created, dyadic, dynamic, bi -directional and self and interactively regulated, Gotthold maintains that in the couple’s treatment it is necessary to understand the miscues that have surfaced during the emergent process of the dyadic system of the co-creation. If all goes well, the couple will be able to understand and to change the dyadic regulatory processes in order to proceed in a "healthy" and co-agreed manner. To maintain her theory the author refers to the contributions of Bebee and Lachman’s Infant Research with specific references to the concepts of coordination, equilibrium, and mutual influence systems, on the Study of the Boston Group on transformation and on the notion of implicit relational knowing. Through a clinical example, Gotthold shows how it is possible in couple’s therapy, to transform a system from a bi-directional to a tri-directional one. Understanding the bi-directional and self and interactively regulated dimensions of the relationship we are investigating, aids the implicit and explicit and procedural interpretations that are necessary to change the system.
