I am writing a blog that is drawn from a book I am writing. I will be publishing posts on a weekly basis and they will appear on Mondays.
Resolving Impasses, which is based on my experience in working with couples. The book is focused on what are frequent types of conflicts and impasses that couples get caught in, and what I have found are effective ways of developing more open communication and more constructive approaches for resolving conflicts.
The blog will contain information about effective communication skills, problem resolution processes, and a perspective of how to develop compromises with your partner that is based on balancing the need to express and assert your needs while also being empathetic and caring towards your spouse’s needs. Although the book is being written towards improving marital and couples relationships, many of its strategies for more effective problem resolution can be applied to other types of relationships.
