ABSTRACTThis study investigates the psychological ramifications of receiving RealityTherapy for clients with marital problem in the newly formed Integrated FamilyService Centre (IFSC) in Hong Kong. This report takes a practice researchperspective, in the form of a research project and a clinical practice, focusing onprocess and outcome, serves as an integrated practice-oriented model. Threestandardized measures (perceived improvement, enhanced problem solvingcapacity, empathy) and in-depth interviews are used to analyze data generatedfrom 5 clients in three cases. The literature review covers the concept of maritalpower, local marriage counseling approaches, and the theory and practice of Reality Therapy. The review suggests the application of Reality Therapy is notonly feasible to clients with marital problem but also accommodating to therationale of IFSC. The findings indicate significant changes in the participants:perceived equity in the marital relationship increases; perceived improvement inmarital problem increases; there is part or all of three modes of communication;sociability increases through the stages of counseling; control over the otherbetween the partners decreases; and enhanced problem solving capacityincreases. Based on the findings, the report concludes by calling for (i) aneffective therapeutic alliance in practice, (ii) a theoretical orientation focusing onchoice and responsibility, and (iii) an integration between clinical practice andresearch.
