In Emotionally Focused Therapy With Couples, Leslie S. Greenberg demonstrates his affect-centered approach to working with couples. In this session, Dr. Greenberg works with a couple in their 20s who have been married for 2 years and live with the female partner's family. During the session, the focus shifts from problems with her family to problems with the couple's relationship. By focusing on the couple's problems, Dr. Greenberg helps them to begin to reveal their underlying emotions to each other in order to change their negative interactional pattern.
