Problem-solving Skills: Creating New Possibilities


Issues and conflict are an inevitable part of intimate relationships. What distinguishes a happy and successful couple from a distressed couple is their ability to deal with issues or conflict in a constructive manner. Developing strong communication skills such as those described in the previous unit is one important aspect to effectively handling issues that might arise in relationships. Couples also need good problem-solving skills. This unit will present a problem-solving approach that couples can use for any type of issue, whether of a religious nature or not.
