WORKING WITH COUPLES IN CRISIS

 

Description:

Men and women are having a tough time these days. Work pressures, domestic problems, money and parenting have made the family a battle ground for survival. Generally men and women have poor relationship skills and often are reluctant to go to special counseling as a couple or participate in life skills groups with trained therapists or facilitators.

 

Men fear that going for help to a therapist or counselor will brand them as weak and incapable of managing their lives. Women seem to be less reluctant to seek professional help but often they seek it too late to make a big difference to the relationship. Things have gone too far to make the necessary repairs and the main recipients of the family discords are the children.

 

Leaving the home and the family is easy these days - just pack the bag and go. There is no social stigma attached to this behavior. However few men and women choosing to leave the relationship as a rule consider the long term consequences. Leaving is only a reaction to a problem and is a symptom that requires a solution in a more mature and healthy way.

 

Yaro Starak, a psychotherapist and lecturer in Social Work, has designed a couples' workbook that facilitates a healthy way to re-establish a relationship between couples who want to grow together and prevent the drastic solution of just walking away when things get tough.

 

The “Manual for Couples Who Want to Grow"- a Gestalt approach - has been in preparation for the past four years and has been tested with a number of couples with great success.

 

This is not a 'marriage enrichment' manual, It is a six-steps way to enhance a relationship and prevent a downward spiral by enabling the couple to develop positive, on-going, healthy relationship skills on a daily basis. The book is free for those attending the workshop.
