The purpose of this article is to demonstrate how counselors can use de Bono's Six Thinking Hats problem-solving technique in their work with couples. Part 1 of the article focuses on an introduction to the technique, including a theoretical rationale and supporting research. Following a detailed description of the process of using the model as a counseling technique with couples in Part 2, a case study is featured in Part 3. A brief review of the technique and its advantages and limitations in couple counseling concludes the article.
