Marital therapy is probably the best single thing that people in troubled marriages can do to help heal their marriages. A skilled marriage therapist offers support and intervention that can help distrusting disengaged partners to safely address their difficulties and begin the process of problem solving and healing.
Highlights of Marital Therapy
· Counselor is unbiased and professional
· Collaborative process to work on your goals, no predetermined agenda
· Identify maladaptive patterns in interactions
· Take responsibility for yourself and your relationship
· Better awareness, understanding, communication and conflict handling
· More realistic goals and expectations
· Effort through home works, role plays, change in thinking and behavior
The Goals of Marital Therapy
The goals of couple counseling will be determined by the couple in collaboration with the counselor. The counselor doesn’t work with a predetermined agenda. The counselor would help identify ineffective or maladaptive patterns in your interactions and communication. The counselor would also observe how you manage (or avoid) conflicts between yourselves. The counselor will facilitate your learning to see things from the other person’s perspective. You also could learn to make healthy boundaries for yourselves.
Benefits of Marital Therapy
ü You will learn how to resolve conflict in a healthy manner. In marriage counseling you will learn communication skills that will help you not only listen to your spouse but, to also process what your spouse is saying.
ü You will learn how to state your needs clearly and openly without resentment or anger.
ü You will learn how to be assertive without being offensive. Both spouses need to be able to talk about their issues without fear of hurting the other spouse. In marriage counseling you will learn that you can get what you need without having to make demands and engage in conflict.
ü You will learn to process and work through unresolved issues. Marriage counseling offers a safe environment for expressing any unhappiness you feel. Getting your feelings out into the open with the help of a trained professional may be all you need. You may find that your spouse is more than willing to work together to solve the problems in the marriage. You may also find that your spouse is unwilling to do the work. If so, you are then free to leave the marriage without any guilt because you have given it your best shot.
ü You will develop a deeper understanding of who your spouse is and what his/her needs are. Better yet, you will learn more deeply who you are and what your needs are. You may end up finding that those needs can be met inside the marriage. You may not.
