The parents of four children--a ten-year old and three eight-year old triplets--are concerned that they have grown apart after a series of life challenges. They describe feelings of anger toward each other and a lack of intimacy. In this fourth session of six, the therapist elicits the couple's reactions to their friend's observations in the previous session about their courtship and early relationship. The couple provides more details about their life stressors since that time: the birth of their first child, then triplets, the mother's hospitalization, the death of the husband's father, and the husband's cancer. The therapist helps them focus on the strength of their couple bond and the personal strengths they have failed to acknowledge. He encourages them to make more time for themselves.
