Because we know the divorce rate is so high we realize that helping couples through their conflicts is going to bring that statistic down. That is why rediscover psych was created. There are common mistakes that couples make when dealing with conflict.
The first is they do not deal with it and they ignore it. They are worried what their spouses reactions going to be and so they just ignore it and push their own feelings down. What ends up happening is a resentment starts growing and a loss of respect and love for the other person pops up.
Another mistake that couples make is trying to fix the other person or change their perspective. This usually ends up looking like two heads butting because of the differing perspectives. What we help couples do is uncover what the other person is feeling. From there we have the one couple take on the point of view of the other while suspending their own personal point of view. This helps you to understand your partner and have some empathy.
