Title: Investigating the Effect of Systemic Constructivist Couple Therapy (SCCT)- Based Relationship Enhancement Workshops on the Relationship Satisfaction of Couples in the Community
Author: Eshghi, Niloufar
Abstract: Relationships play an essential role in the well-being of individuals and there have been many attempts in recent years to help couples build stronger bonds with each other. For the purposes of this study, a workshop format of a previously validated couples intervention was created and its effectiveness was investigated. Specifically, this study examined the effect of a four-session workshop rooted in the empirical findings of systemic constructivist couple therapy (SCCT) research. A sample of 15 couples participated in this workshop over a span of 8 months. The results of this study showed that the workshop was effective in enhancing the relationship of the couples as measured through five self-report measures completed pre and post participation in the workshop. The self-report measures captured relationship quality, styles of listening, emotional experience of the relationship and closeness with the partner. These results and the implication of this study are discussed.
