Therapist neutrality

One of my friends recently told me of an unpleasant counseling experience he had with his ex- wife. The therapist took a neutral position on the disclosure that his wife was actively involved in an affair. Rather than saying in clear terms that it was unacceptable and counter to rebuilding the marriage, the therapist minimized her ongoing affair and steered the conversation to what he could do differently.

I choose to not be neutral in working with couples. I wish to be marriage friendly; to encourage couples to make it. While I have worked with many couples with infidelity, it is essential that affairs end so that healing can begin. And by taking a marriage friendly position, I am not neutral on this subject. Go team go!
