What I do is to help individuals rediscover what they have lost in their relationships and show them in a practical way how to create helpful ways of responding to their own and other’s vulnerability.
When couples struggle to manage their differences, immediate and extended families get involved and this can help and/or enlarge differences.
I use the word family to describe people of all ages and gender who care about each other that includes parents, children, grandparents, uncles, aunts, friends, neighbours, carers and partners.
What can I do to help?
- Help families to talk about the challenges they are facing
- Support families to work towards their own goals
- Talk about each persons hopes for their family
- Respect and clarify each persons beliefs, values and needs to help them have a better understanding of each other
- Help people to understand the effect their words and actions have on everyone else in the family
- Provide a safe environment to support and understand each other
