Dyad Therapy can be appropriate for combination of two individuals who wish to engage in the therapeutic process. Although the most typical Dyad is consists of parent and child, other dyads can include:
- business partners
- brother and sister or
- long-term friends
The goals of Dyad Therapy can vary based on each partners expectation.
Dyad Therapy is similar couples therapy, where each person learns to negotiate their differences, resolve conflicts and create healthy boundaries and limits between themselves. The first step of this process is to help each person explore and identify the stuck points of their relationship. Through that work, the therapist can go on to help each individual build clear, honest and vulnerable dialog with one another.
Dyad Therapy can also be an effective method to explore conflicting feelings that each person might have about the continuation of the relationship.
