If there are two or more people living together, at some point in time, conflict is bound to happen and that’s absolutely natural. Learning about conflict resolution can help individuals in many relationships: marriage, family and even friendship.
The video below shortlists the Big Five Marriage Questions that couples can use whenever they have a conflict and aims to resolve it.
Ms. Rajika Mehra, a relationship counseling expert, talks about conflict resolution amongst couples. In her therapy sessions, she has been using the approach of Structured Reality Therapy, developed by William Glasser, an American psychiatrist.
The Structured Reality Therapy is completely based on two things ;
– Marriage is a partnership, and
– The only way to help a couple facing problems is to help them focus on ‘What’s good for their marriage’. It aims at shifting the focus from ‘who did what’ & ‘my partner is the reason why we are here’ to “what do we do together to make this marriage work”.
