Most of us think that two is the most stable number in relationships.
But every dyad needs a third to stabilize it.
The process of including a third in a dyad is called triangulation.
Triangulation is a natural and unavoidable dynamic that occurs in every relationship.

The problems begin with the triangulation is fixed and rigid. It creates a 'lose-lose' dynamic that prevents all three members from raising differentiation and deepening their relationships.

In this talk, we discuss the phenomenon of triangulation in intimate relationships through examples of our own marriage and from the clinic.
Practical tips will help you lower triangulation in your intimate relationships today.
