Relational life therapy offers strategies to combat marital dysfunction and restore harmony in relationships.
Couples -- those recovering from affairs, traumatic events, or a lull in passion -- can find RLT helpful. To repair discord, the therapist identifies the main conflict upsetting the couples' emotional intimacy.
Once the partners see how they both contribute to the problem, the therapist teaches them skills to improve the ways they relate to each other. Couples may see a change in their relationship within three to six months.
