Couple psychotherapy - Group psychotherapy. A possible dialogue? - Through the exploration of the "bond" concept (as expressed by Kaës) - which is the specific unconscious reality that emerges from the encounter of two or more subjects - work with couples is analyzed through the evolution of what the authors see as the most fruitful paradigms for clinical work. Our understanding of individual and group psychoanalytic psychotherapy is examined, and basic clinical theoretical tenets are identified during the meeting with the couple. We determine the cardinal concepts by which we explore the evergrowing complexity of emotional dynamics. The therapist needs to observe and investigate both inner and outer personal aspects, as well as reciprocal emotional dynamics in order to define not only the self but also the meaning of us. The authors examine different phases in the couple’s life, and, more specifically, what happens within the couple when a newborn arrives. Particular attention is given to the construction of the couple’s common setting. Referring to transference and counter-transference dynamics, analogies and differences between group psychotherapy and couple psychotherapy are outlined in order to establish a possible dialogue between the two approaches.
