The article analyzes the co-therapy context as a place where the weness is endorsed as a relational model in the therapeutic process with couples in crisis. After describing the ideas of some authors interested in this treatment method in their clinical work, underlining its strength and weakness points, the co-therapy model is described a model referring to the multigenerational family therapy theory frame. In particular we will go inside the building ongoing processes of the therapeutic weness and the couple weness, the first one related to the relation between the two therapists, the second one as a chance for the couple to experience an adult relationship free from protective and undifferentiated issues. As an example, some clips from couple therapies at the Polo Clinico of the Accademia di Psicoterapia della Famiglia of Rome, will be presented.
