What is Psychobiological Approach to Couples Therapy?

Home » Treatment Therapies » Psychobiological Approach to Couples Therapy (PACT)

Psychobiological Approach to Couples Therapy seeks to help partners understand their partner’s needs based on their unique experiences. By understanding these needs, partners will be more in tune and empathetic in their responses to conflict or disagreement.

PACT teaches partners to understand the human need for connection and how this need can play out within relationships. If people exhibit problematic behavior within a relationship, it’s helpful to understand how their early relationships affect the way they relate in the present day.

Your PACT counselor will encourage an exploration of attachment needs for each partner. They will encourage each partner to notice details about their partner’s body language and microexpressions. By seeing small cues in their partner, couples can better understand when they need safety and connection.

PACT can be helpful for couples experiencing conflict in their relationship.
