Couple therapy engages us in a complex, recursive process of interlocking activities: data gathering, hypothesizing, planning, sharing our ideas with clients, and processing their feedback. These activities proceed almost simultaneously, allowing us to continuously refine our working models of what the problem is and what we can do to help. This complexity can be both stimulating and overwhelming. While much of what I do now in couple therapy has become automatic, some attitudes and behaviors require constant vigilance, even after many years. In this chapter, I offer some overarching recommendations for conducting therapy, and then discuss the sequencing of interventions in detail.
