How to Get the Most from your Couples Therapy

The problem with this approach is that it is blaming and shaming. Most people become defensive when faced with blame or shame and do what they can to build a strong case in their defense in order to avoid feeling shamed. This puts the attacker in the position of having to build a stronger and more righteous attack. The situation quickly escalates as each person builds a stronger case for why they are “right.” It is easy to see how quickly attacker and defender can find themselves fully caught up in the “Blame/Shame Cycle.”
