For couples experiencing communication issues, constant inability to see eye to eye, and overall dissatisfaction, it can feel like all hope is lost. It takes a lot of effort to make that step toward therapy or coaching, especially if it’s been tried in the past. Whether a couple is experiencing their first major conflict or ready to throw in the towel, a tool called Movement Pattern Analysis (MPA) can provide a major boost. The process is relatively simple, and the results are life-changing. Often used in executive consulting to sort out issues with team dynamics, MPA is based on the fact that our inherent movement patterns and preferences reflect and directly relate to our inherent patterns of decision-making and interaction.
At InTouch & Motion, we utilize MPA to help each partner in a couple understand: (a) their own patterns and preferences, (b) their partner’s patterns and preferences, and (c) how the two interact best and where they struggle most. The process results in a mass of information on each person’s strengths and blind spots both in how they interact with each other and how they prefer to make decisions. It is important to understand that there is no right or wrong way to interact with the world and make decisions; what we can change is how we utilize our preferred approach to elicit positivity rather than tension and misunderstanding. Once this foundation is understood, we build and practice specific and individualized strategies for each of the partners to enact so that both are working toward improvement, growth, and change.
Here’s a general step-by-step of the MPA couples session process:
– Each person has a two-hour, individualized consultation
– Each person receives a two-hour feedback session on their unique approach to decision-making and interaction
– Each person receives a written report on their patterns, strengths, and blind spots
– The couple receives a feedback session where each learn about their partner’s decision-making and interaction profile and how their profiles impact their relationship dynamic
– The couple gets a written report on their strengths and weakness as a couple, detailing strategies for improvement
