PRE-MARITAL THERAPY AND TESTING
Research strongly supports the benefits of pre-marital therapy and testing when it follows specific protocols. Hoping for good outcomes in marriage merely based on “perceived compatibility” or “present relationship satisfaction” is not supported by research.
Marital therapy to facilitate improved communication and reduction in conflict is provided. Couples are seen in an effort to strengthen positive features of their relationship as well as unravel negative patterns which threaten the stability of their marriage. When divorce and separation are strong possibilities couples are assisted in facilitating amicable and productive communication.
Family therapy focuses on improved communication and providing a stable supportive atmosphere to discuss difficult issues and family conflicts. The dynamics of the entire family are considered in negotiating improved communication and enhanced satisfaction for all members of the family system.
