The Angry Couple: Conflict Focused Treatment
The Angry Couple dramatically recreates key moments in the six-month course of counseling with Judith and Richard, a distressed couple whose marriage is threatened by a cycle of explosive anger and silent withdrawal. Dr. Heitler quickly reins in their anger, cuts through the impasses that have prolonged their conflict, and uncovers the core issues that have blocked intimacy from flourishing.

This video offers a solid framework for students, fresh perspectives for seasoned therapists, and engaging learning for couples looking to enhance their relationship.

This is an excellent presentation. A valuable teaching and training tool, it clearly illustrates that successful clinical practice involves the ability to take a focused problem-solving approach which integrates perspectives and techniques from several therapeutic modalities. Clinicians of every theoretical orientation will find something of value in this clear and thoughtful presentation.

Dr. Heitler gives us a road map for working with one of the more difficult couple dynamic: constant arguing. This map includes: how to structure a session, how to set limits, how to make use of family-of-origin material, how to set goals, and how the therapist can use her own emotional reactions. An extra bonus is that it is moving to watch this engaging couple work through relationship difficulties.

Susan HeitlerDr. Susan Heitler is a clinical psychologist specializing in saving marriages. In her clinical practice as a marriage therapist in Denver, Colorado, Dr. Heitler has been helping individuals and couples for over 25 years. She also has written a book, a workbook, and led workshops called The Power of Two to help more couples learn the skills that lead to marital success. Dr. Heitler graduated from Harvard University, earned a masters degree in education at Boston University and then a doctorate in psychology from New York University. She and her husband, married over 30 years, have enjoyed raising four children, now young adults with children of their own. Dr. Heitler has lectured on her therapy methods nationwide and abroad, including in Spain, Austria, Lebanon, the United Arab Emirates, Israel and Australia. Dr. Heitler, a popular radio and television talk show guest, is frequently interviewed in magazines such as Fitness, Men's Health, Women's World, and Parenting. Her cases have appeared often in the Ladies Home Journal column "Can This Marriage Be Saved?" In May 2004, Dr. Heitler appeared on the CBS Early Show where anchor Harry Smith introduced her as "the most influential person in my life—my therapist." He encouraged his viewers similarly to seek therapy when they are emotionally distressed and premarital counseling when they are contemplating marriage.
