The aim of this paper is to empirically assess the reliability of the plan formulation method for couples, a procedure for
formulating the case, planning, and monitoring the couple therapies according to control-mastery theory. We hypothesized
that when couples are looking for couple therapy, they have an unconscious couple’s plan for the therapy, which includes
the couple’s goals; the pathogenic beliefs that the partners want to disprove; the traumas from which these beliefs originated
and that the partners want to master; the vicious relational circles that make the couple sufer and that the couple wants to
break; the virtuous relational circles that are expressions of the couple’s resources and that the couple wants to fuel; and the
relational insights that may help the couple get better.
