There are two ways to feel stuck as couples therapy and they each require a different approach to moving forward. In one situation the couple is stuck (not progressing in therapy) but the clinical relationship is good. Input from colleagues can help the therapist try other approaches. The other, perhaps more common but under-discussed stuckness is when the couple is not progressing and the therapist is struggling with one or both of the spouses. If you don’t address that relational impasse, the whole therapy system is not likely to move forward.
