Family and Marriage Counseling Create Attitude Change

Summary:


This article is about an online case with L., who called to say “I am 27 and three months pregnant. My mother doesn't think my boyfriend is good enough for me.” 

Looking back on my previous experiences as a family Online Counseling Psychologist and Life Coach, I knew how stressful a time and experience L. must be going through. At this point I started asking questions directing her away from her current experience and trying to see what her relationship was like with her mother in the past.

As we continued to discuss her current life process I took time to explain what is called ‘attitude change’ – a cognitive and emotional process that alternates the belief system, the values and the socially related ‘do’ or ‘do not do’ practices. 

I advised L. that my role as the online facilitator would be to assist each one of the family members to approach three major ‘learning and change’ missions: 
L. life with her child’s father, 
L. and her 'self': dependency level the ability to say and act according to own feelings and needs,
L, her boyfriend and her mother: they all need to change/re-establish or recreate new relationships.
