Being in an intimate relationship can be one of the greatest joys, but also one of the greatest pains. Hope doesn’t always coincide with reality, needs do not fit, anger leads to growing apart, judgements break acceptance, solitude fills parallel lives and distances the ones in the relationship. Our structural, moral, cognitive and emotional uniqueness makes us differently perceive the passing of the years, but beyond this, there is a relative natural and mutual cyclicity, universally and unexceptionally crossed by that spiritual entity newly formed yet old as the bible itself, called a “couple”. In all cases in which the relationships resisted and strived, the couples had basic practical abilities such as: listening, clear communication, negotiation, adequate anger management, assertive expressing of emotions and needs. In this paper, we present the cognitive-behavioral approach of couple and family therapy, focusing on the above-mentioned techniques.
