Using square breathing and muscle relaxation techniques are really good ways to help couples move into their bodies and away from their reactivity. It changes brain chemistry and helps move partners to be in a safer space and more open to authentically participate in the Couples Dialogue. As you point out, the dialogue is a way to create co-regulation for the couples and building it upon a guided imagery really helps the couple to get in a place to be more receptive to hearing, validating and empathizing with their partner.
See you in class on Thursday.
