Couple talking to each other
  • Develop Skills to Resolve Arguments Healthily. To resolve arguments you must learn to listen to the other person, state your needs clearly and openly, and be willing to together seek a solution that is best for both of you.
  • Assertiveness Training. Each partner in a relationship needs to be able to state their needs in a healthy way.
  • Active Listening. Each partner needs to be able to listen to the other person and understand what they are saying.
  • Process Unresolved Issues. Your therapist can help you process old, unresolved issues, clearing the way to focus on improving the current relationship.
  • Build a Healthy Relationship. For a relationship to be successful, the positives must outweigh the negatives. Your therapist will give you assignments and relationship advice to bring back the joy you once had in the relationship.
  • Build Trust. To have a healthy relationship, each partner must earn the trust of the other partner.

The techniques, skills and habits for a successful, happy relationship can be learned. It is helpful for a couple to interact with a therapist who can monitor your progress, referee arguments, teach you the skills you need to succeed, offer objective feedback and encouragement, and help you turn theory into lifelong habits to improve all your relationships.
