Integrative Behavioral Couples Therapy

Integrative Behavioral Couples Therapy is a treatment approach designed by Drs. Neil Jacobson and Andrew Christensen, and is based on the dual premise of promoting acceptance of one’s partner while simultaneously working on developing concrete skills to improve communication, decrease conflict, and increase empathy in the relationship. Research on acceptance in relationships has shown that greater acceptance of one’s partner creates a greater sense of safety and increases one’s flexibility to make lasting and meaningful change in the relationship.
