During the course of a relationship a couple can develop adverse dynamics. process. This can happen either slowly over time or it can be sparked by certain life events. The resulting vicious
circles can sooner or later escalate. During such circles, behaviour of one partner triggers strong emotions within the other partner. This partner responds to these emotions with certain
behavioural patterns which triggers in turn emotions within the other partner. If this partner reacts again with the same behavioural patterns, a vicious circle is created, which the couple
often is unable to escape on their own.
During the couples therapy the couple will learn to recognize the vicious circles, to break out of these circles and to increase positive relationship experiences.
