Congruence Couple Therapy for Pathological Gambling
Lee, Bonnie K.
Couple therapy models for pathological gambling are limited. Congruence Couple Therapy is an integrative, humanistic, systems model that addresses intrapsychic, interpersonal, intergenerational, and universal–spiritual disconnections of pathological gamblers and their spouses to shift towards congruence. Specifically, CCT‘s theoretical foundations, main constructs, and treatment interventions are illustrated in a progression of six clinical phases. Promise of CCT‘s systemic conceptualization and interventions for pathological gambling and future directions in its continuing evolution are discussed. Keywords: Congruence Couple Therapy .
