Abstract

The following case study demonstrates the potential for an integrated behavioral treatment to improve interpersonal functioning, specifically within a romantic relationship. This integrated treatment utilizes strategies from both Functional Analytic Psychotherapy (FAP) and Behavioral Activation (BA), and thus is termed FAP-Enhanced BA (FEBA). This case study represents an initial attempt to apply FEBA to a 22-year-old female undergraduate, Megan, presenting with relationship distress. Megan and her partner both completed a pretreatment and posttreatment assessment that included self-report questionnaires in addition to a conflict-interaction task that was later coded for the presence of specific emotions. After the pretreatment assessment, Megan participated in 8 sessions of FEBA. Session-by-session descriptions and data will be presented, as well as data from the pretreatment and posttreatment assessments.
