Moral Development in Couple Therapy

Moral Development in Couple Therapy

By Steven I. Ries



This innovative text utilizes Kohlberg's stages of moral development, demonstrating how they can be effectively applied to couple and marriage therapy. Facilitating moral stage development has been found to improve couples' ability to relate to one another, enhancing trust, transparency, communication, and intimacy. Based on empirical research and Kohlberg's classic stages of development, the book showcases the Conceptual Template, a tool for therapists to guide their clients in thinking more objectively about the reality being experienced, their own subjectivity, and how to work together as a couple to mindfully solve problems. With an extensive Instructional Manual as well as a transcript of the author teaching the Conceptual Template process to a therapist, Moral Development in Couple Therapy illustrates a highly practical approach to counseling that helps couples achieve a more rational level of moral judgment and reasoning. Filled with practical case studies and written in an accessible manner, this text is an indispensable resource for couple therapists and other mental health professionals working with couples to resolve conflict. .
