A Psychobiological Approach to Couples Therapy (PACT) with Drs. William J. Ryan and James Dean
In this presentation, Dr. James Dean will present a couple case for discussion. The Discussant, Dr. William J. Ryan, Ph.D., will offer an exploration according to the PACT model and answer questions afterward.
William's discussion will be designed both to help Dr. Dean with his case, and provide more general information helpful to an audience who might be somewhat unfamiliar with PACT.
Psychobiology is the developmental study of human beings from cradle to grave, focusing on the developing mind, brain, and body. This presentation covers some science and discusses how therapists can organize couples' work in a manner that makes sense. The Psychobiological Approach to Couples Therapy (PACT), developed by Stan Tatkin, is an amalgam of developmental theories (neurobiology, arousal regulation, and attachment). It offers multiple therapeutic approaches and techniques (structural/strategic family systems, object relations, somatic tracking of face and body, psychodrama, informal trance, and more). The goal of PACT is for partners to behave in a manner of secure functioning: two autonomous individuals, entirely interdependent, always operating collaboratively and cooperatively. Secure-functioning partners operate under principles of fairness, justice, and sensitivity to one another. They co-create a unique culture with a clear shared purpose and vision as all free and fair unions must.
