Silence in Relationships and CFT

Silence can be the most destructive phase in a relationship. Meaningful communication is the stuff relationships are made off and what maintains them. Heated emotional exchanges., as long as they are not aimed at personality attributes or communication patterns that are close to the core self of a person, are usually not as damaging to a relationship as is silence.

In communication-focused therapy (CFT), as developed by the author, the emphasis is on restarting and maintaining a process of meaningful communication, so that the partners can make better decisions about the future of their relationship. At the same time, individual therapy is helpful because an apparent unwillingness to communicate frequently points to intrapersonal difficulties.
