Over the course of five counseling sessions, Shea Dunham works with Danielle and Jay, a married couple who have come to therapy to work on trust in their marriage. Danielle recently had an affair with a former boyfriend, and the couple is at a crossroads, trying to regain trust and intimacy. Danielle has shut down emotionally, and Jay is desperate to make the marriage work. Dunham works with the couple on how to repair attachment injuries, negotiate different attachment styles, and build security and trust in the relationship. Shea Dunham, PhD, is a licensed mental health counselor and associate professor at Governors State University. She works from an emotionally focused perspective and is an expert in family systems theory. She has published several professional articles in the area of counseling and is coeditor of Poisonous Parenting: Toxic Relationships Between Parents and Their Adult Children. She is also currently working on The Emotionally Focused Guide to Revisioning African American Relationships. Complete Counseling: From First to Last Session takes the viewer through five sessions with the same client. Viewers will witness how clients change from session to session, how the approach to treatment changes over time, and how various therapeutic interventions are applied in different situations.
