Full Title
A model of process for interpersonal interaction in marital therapy
Robert P Huizenga
The purpose of this paper is to state clearly and concisely a model for marital therapy. I demonstrate that the model is closely associated with personal assumptions , is based on particular theoretical constructs , and can be utilized in interpersonal interaction.

The first chapter lists particular personal assumptions and states the importance of articulating assumptions. Systems theory, which embraces a theory of process, is outlined in Chapter II. Tri-Modal Structuring, with its three modes of interaction, is described in Chapter III. Finally , Chapter IV demonstrates the utilization of the model by presenting a case study of marital therapy.

This paper is an attempt to express in written form what I have attempted to integrate over the past three years. As such, it is an attempt to state in my own words what I have seen, heard, read, experienced and thought regarding therapy. I have attempted to take that which I have encountered and in a brief and simple way, state the coherent principles which become my guide in the maze of interpersonal interaction.
