Most case consults present a struggle between the therapist and one or both spouses who aren’t buying what we’re saying or are otherwise not on board with our approach. In The Doherty Approach we don’t see that as a crisis but as a moment to stop, engage the client, reconnect, and renegotiate what “we are doing here” in the therapy. When we clean up relational issues between therapist and a client, it means we don’t have to complain about the uncooperative spouse in case consults. We fix the problem in the therapeutic relationship, or we talk with the couple about ending the therapy.
