On Creating a "Virtual Miracle" in Couples Therapy: Two Case Examples
Leslie H. Margolin

Abstract: De Shazer and colleagues (2007) traced their clients’ reactions to the “miracle question” to the ways they could imagine how they (and others) would behave the morning after a miracle in their relationship happened. However, this article hypothesizes an additional stimulus: the ways that clients experience each other in real time during the session. Emotional reactions to the ‘miracle question’ may result from clients’ imagining their own and their significant other’s loving reactions in the future, and also from their direct observation of their significant other’s potential for loving interactions in the here-and-now.
Key Words: Solution-focused brief therapy, couples therapy, family therapy, miracle question, virtual miracle
