“Being understood is being loved.”
Dyadic therapeutic work, as previously mentioned, can at times stem from Whole Family System work. In fact, this is not uncommon in family dances. The expression “it takes two to tango” comes to mind. I rely heavily on the evidence-based research and the theoretical understandings of Attachment Theory in my work, and most significantly when working dyadically. I also use the Circle of Security approach when working on parent-child relationships and parenting challenges, along with the theoretical learnings of Emotionally-Focused Therapy (EFT).
