Summary This informative and stimulating presentation features excerpts from five treatment sessions in which Dr. Frank Dattilio demonstrates the core techniques of Cognitive Couples Therapy. The viewer has a rare opportunity to watch a master therapist using the same procedures that are presented in the book. The young couple in this presentation enter therapy after 10 years of marriage with complaints of resentment, alienation, misunderstanding, disenchantment, unfairness, and nonproductive quarrelsome arguments. In a series of conjoint and individual sessions, Dr. Dattilio demonstrates how he helps couples identify and conceptualize their complaints, thoughts, feelings, and beliefs and then begin the process of reconceptualizing and reframing those concepts and schemata to improve their personal and marital relationships. The use of specific techniques is clearly illustrated including how to delve into automatic thoughts and underlying beliefs (schemata), procedures for delineating positive and negative frames, how to develop and use the download arrow, reframing, educating clients in the cognitive model, and ways in which various questionnaires, instruments, and homework assignments can be productively used diagnostically, therapeutically, and to reinforce therapeutic gains. A brief program guide will help both experienced and novice therapists increase their understanding and appreciation of what Dr. Dattilio demonstrates in his work with this couple.
