Helping patients, couples, and families to resolve conflict
I don’t think any of us really love conflict, but we can generally accept them because it’s one of those “necessary evil”.
It’s an awfully difficult area. There’s seems to be more failures than successes.
When working with couples and families, one of the key fundamental skills that is often missing, is the inability to hold two or more opposing views, values, or beliefs in the same space. They may be more prone to “black and white” thinking as described in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). Something is either right or wrong, good or bad.
Have you observed that too?
