Marriage Counseling

More and more we hear of marriages falling apart and ending in divorce. It's so sad. Everywhere
I turn it seems like there is a couple having troubles. Many of these couples probably have found themselves finding it difficult to communicate their problems with one another. After all...communication is so important in a marriage!! Seeing how divorce is rising I felt it necessary to share the National Institute of Marriage and their Marriage Counseling programs with you. Whether you are someone looking for help, or someone you is a place you may want to start.

I happened to come across this site and thought it was very informative...something anyone could use and find the information they're looking for. If you're interested....head over to their site for yourself and check it out. There you'll find information on counseling, conferences, books and so many other resources that may be helpful. It's very user friendly and everything you need is right there on the main page. See what you think and take a look at the following press release which offers further information:

With the national divorce rate around 50%, there is no doubt that many marriages run into communication problems at some point. There is a communication epidemic. The National Institute of Marriage has created marriage counseling programs and resources utilizing a structure that is the most powerful format they have found for helping couples who feel stuck and hopeless. They have designed several programs to help couples move past the barriers and experience the marriage of their dreams.
NIM's Intensive Marriage Counseling Programs are unique from weekly marriage counseling in three distinctive ways:

· Intensive Marriage Counseling Format: Committing to an extended amount of concentrated time like the 2 or 4 day Marriage Intensive allows people to get to the root of the problem and stick with it in order to work through it. If you’ve been in traditional marriage counseling before, you may have experienced how you spend the first half catching up from the week before, the second half getting into the real issues, and then the time is gone. The Intensive format is designed so that people have the chance to go deeper without many of the other distractions of daily life and have enough discuss to consider solutions.

· Efficiency: One of the first steps in the process is an extensive assessment with some questionnaires. This allows the therapists to gather background information and can get an idea of the best strategy to proceed before you arrive for your session.

· Marriage Counselors: The counselors at the National Institute of Marriage are specialists in this area. One analogy we like to use is that of the Mayo Clinic: people go to their regular physician but may be sent to a specialist to work with specific areas. The NIM marriage therapists have been trained in this format to maximize its effectiveness. Also, the NIM marriage counseling programs provide the perspectives and insight of two professionals rather than one.
If you are considering divorce, you must try the National Institute of Marriage before giving up. They have developed a continuum of care that meets couples wherever they may be in their relationship. Regardless of the health of their marriage they have a service that can help couples improve their marital satisfaction.
