Couples formed by people of the same sex present common problems to heterosexual couples: communication problems, jealousy, infidelity. . . But the development of the personality of a homosexual, in a society in which homosexuality has only recently begun to be truly accepted, brings together two people who bring to the relationship a past history, in which they have lived to a greater or lesser extent a specific stressor of homosexual couples, homophobia, which many of them end up internalizing. To assume that they are completely different from heterosexual couples would be a fallacy and an exaggeration, but not to admit that there are differences would also be a mistake.
How does it work?
In the first session, the two members of the couple are met. To be able to have a version of the situation by both parties and to evaluate how they interact in session. It will explain the dynamics to follow in couple therapy, the importance of their commitment, sincerity in testimonies and work outside of sessions.
The second session is done individually with each of the members of the couple separately, to know the situation without the presence of the partner and to assess whether there are individual issues that should be worked on before starting couple therapy. Several questionnaires will be delivered, which will have to be completed by the couple individually, of great importance to gather information necessary for a more complete intervention.
The third and successive will be attended to the couple jointly and individually depending on the evolution of the therapeutic process.
No couple is the same as another, just as no two people are the same, so psychotherapy is totally individualized, adapted to their specific needs, but in general the objectives of treatment are usually training in skills to increase reinforcement, improve communication, acquisition of problem-solving skills, negotiation and agreements, acquisition of new interpersonal vocabulary, learning conversational skills, expression, control of stimuli, planning and use of free time, etc…
