internal model of attachement sono una delle componenti primarie. La scelta di un partner e la costruzione di un rapporto sentimentale sembrano essere in relazione con le caratteristiche e il grado di articolazione dell’assetto emotivo e cognitivo individuale. Il rapporto di coppia si genera dall’ingranarsi dei due stili sentimentali che sono espressione dei significati individuali (self meaning) e tendono a mantenere sentimenti di continuità e di unicità del sé nell'incontro intimo con l’altro da sé. In una terapia di coppia, l’obiettivo è quello di incrementare tale articolazione nell’analizzare come si ingranano i due significati individuali nelle varie fasi di formazione, mantenimento e crisi/rottura.)" />

In this article, the author will introduce the "postrational constructivist cognitive approach" to couple therapy. In this presentation, I will in particular refer to concepts that derive from the work of Patricia Crittenden, Furio Lambruschi and Vittorio Guidano, briefly mentioning them. A more comprehensive presentation can be found in their work. The dynamics that lie beneath the emotional reciprocity of a romantic relationship are considered to be tightly connected with the attachment experienced during childhood that represents the emotional dimension in which the personal meaning is created. This can afterwards develop in a personal meaning organization in which the internal models of attachment are one of the components. The choice of a partner and the creation of a romantic relationship seem to be in relation with the characteristics and the degree of articulation of the emotional and cognitive individual structure. The couple relationship is generated by the engagement of the two romantic styles that are the expression of the individual self meanings. These tend to maintain feelings of continuity and uniqueness of the Self during the intimate encounter of the other from self. In a couple therapy the aim is to increment such articulation in the analysis of how the two personal meanings engage in the various phases of creation, conservation and crisis/rupture.
