This colorful type of couple is really a trap. The eager beaver is very motivated for the couples therapy and the turtle is quiet, nervous, or disengaged. Trap one is we overly take the turtle to be “emotionally unavailable” or as psychologically stunted while making the eager beaver out to be an emotionally sophisticated spouse. Trap two is to realize the “language” shared with the eager beaver can unbalance the three-way work if the turtle can’t match the language. The Doherty Approach is passionate about balanced three-way couples therapy and not labeling someone who is not experienced with therapy speak.
