Marriage Counseling Brings Hope to Abused Wives
There is no ‘quick - fix’ Relationship Advice solution for an unhealthy abusive relationship.
When R. contacted me about her personal situation it seemed that she was searching for just such a ‘quick-fix’ solution.
R. was in a marriage that had almost completely come undone. “My husband says constant insults and does a lot of name calling. It has gotten physical at one point"...
I encouraged that as the abuse had started to escalate, both partners need professional help, since the 'relationship issue' is complex and not simple to solve and fix. I further went on to address the areas of focus that the Marriage Counseling would begin with and expand upon.
There were three major ‘learning and change’ missions for which I identified:
- The husband (his value system and perceptions, habits, culturally accepted behaviors and also his stress related reactions),
- R (tolerance level, the ability to be strong in order to say and act “No More”),
- Both (common grounds and shared positive experiences).
