Five Points of Connection
We shift people from denial and judgement into awareness and acknowledgement.
Many couples report after the birth of their first child there is little time to spend together, let alone pursuing their own leisure activities. On top of this strain, avoidance of difficult conversations become habitual, mutual support fades, little effort is made to have fun together and the sex disappears.
Using the 5 Points of Connection, couples can change the factors that maintain these unhelpful patterns. They're able to dive deeper and work on how these patterns were created in the first place. This is the best practice for preventing relapse.
5 Points of Connection is focused on changing the couples ability to create harmony by incorporating both therapists observation and the couples own internal process.
Attention nurtures the relationship and maintains the connection. Without it, we become stale and drift apart.
Affection measures the temperature of the satisfaction and security of the relationships. Think of it like the emotional thermometer.
Appreciation is twofold, it helps keep resentment at bay and creates positive regard for the other.
Accountability enforces self-reflection and creates trust. It keeps us responsible for the role that we play in the health of the relationship.
Agreement is a sense that all parts fit well together. Couples have a sense of being on the same page.
