The emphasis in BCT is on behavioral change, specifically, behaviors that contribute to a partner's satisfaction and distress. The techniques most frequently used to promote these changes are behavior exchange and communication/problem-solving strategies. In behavior exchange, the therapist helps the couple to identify behaviors that are reinforcing and through various strategies directs them to increase these reinforcing

Couples Therapy behaviors. This exchange of behaviors provides some immediate relief of distress and paves the way for more difficult negotiations which require communication and problem-solving strategies. The therapist then teaches the couples noncoercive ways of discussing and resolving conflicts and practices these skills with the couple using conflicts that the couple is currently experiencing. The final goal is for the couple to learn to apply these skills on their own whenever a new conflict arises.
