Projective Identification in Common Couple Dances.
Middelberg, Carol V.
Journal of Marital and Family Therapy, v27 n3 p341-52 Jul 2001
Integrates the object relations concept of projective identification and the systemic concept of marital dances to develop a more powerful model for working with more difficult and distressed couples. Suggests how object relations techniques can be used to interrupt projective identifications and resolve conflict on intrapsychic level so the marital dance is no longer necessary to resolve issues.
