I don't have any hints or advice, but I have been (twice) and I will say, it did help, but not in way I thought it would. Both therapists zero'd in on my husband's contrary behavior. My hubby did feel like the everyone was against him --- as it should be (sly grin).

On the positive side, it forged more open communication between the two of us --- outside of therapy. And it helped him see that the world did reasonably see his behavior as angry.

BUT --- my individual therapy has helped more than anything. My T is really good at helping me start lines of conversation with my husband, and helping me with the words I need to express myself.

Don't know if that helped. Anything that gets 2 people to talk more openly can only be good.
