Family Counseling Service offers a safe and secure environment where couples may express their thoughts and feelings. In many cases, couples come to recognize the strengths and positive attributes of themselves and each other.
Family Counseling Services offers a variety of approaches to working with couples experiencing marital or relational difficulties and conflicts. They include:
n Understanding how the differences in males and females may impact a relationship.
n Using assertive behavior that respects other’s boundaries while allowing one’s self to express one’s own feelings and opinions.
n Learning about the cycle of domestic violence in some relationships.
One middle-aged couple who was referred for domestic violence treatment learned how to communicate without making each other angry and defensive. They were able to successfully complete their treatment and to significantly reduce their stress and conflict. Now they can enjoy each other’s company and focus their energies on living together instead of fighting amongst themselves.
