Parra Ocampo, Claudia Isabel | 2019
This research aims to identify the effect of the addition of an empathy training in the intervention of forgiveness of the Cognitive Behavioral Therapy modified by Perez and Ruíz
(2012) in the severity of negative emotions, the frequency of negative thoughts, arguments and positive interactions. Three Colombian couples with infidelity conflicts were tested. An A-B-C unique case design with follow-up was used. The data was obtained through the self-registration of such behaviors and the application of the Interpersonal Reactivity Index test by Davis (IRI) on empathy. The results were analyzed via visual examination and statistical analysis with the TAU-U Non-Parametric Test; in the S stage in relation to the A stage a significant decrease was noted in the severity of emotions and the frequency of thoughts in women, as well as an increase in the arguments with frequencies' instability; only in one of the three couples the positive interactions increased after the treatment.. Given the study variables, such results deserve to be analyzed in depth for further research.
